Below, Kelvyn has the facts. Mac just wants to shut down debate. Probably hes one of these military-commie style guys who wants to take our taxes without any debate from the PEOPLE PAYING THE TAXES!

Kelvyn, it's amazing how little you know of what goes on in Afghanistan, and how much work our Kiwi soldiers do for the area. Do you know the people who are attacking them? Or are you just a military genius? No one really enjoys the views of an ill-informed person, who by the sounds of it, would never have the courage to risk his own wellbeing for the sake of helping others.

Get out of this awful country. They are not dealing with "insurgents" they are being killed by Afghans, local people who don’t want their country occupied. They are not even a reconstruction team. What have they reconstructed? And even if there is some reconstruction the price is too high. They are there because of some politicians are doing deals with the US and the military people are trying to re-live the old concepts of Empire. The world has changed. Embarking on campaigns to impose your will on other cultures through military might is a 19th century ideology. It is morally and ethically and most of all practically untenable. Get out of Afghanistan.
