Just a correction on your article Michael when you stated - "the biggest killers in both Afghanistan and Iraq" is in fact the Americans! not IED. @Grant why are NZ troops even in Afghanistan??

@WEIYA What do you think our troops are trained to do? YES they are trained to go to war, pulling our troops out is exactly what loses a war, ask the French. Pulling them out is NOT the answer, that is exactly what the Ali baba would like to see. The answer is to eliminate the threat in the Kiwi area of operation. Baymian is normally a low-Medium threat area, and it has obviously changed to a HIGH threat area, which indicates that INSURGENTS not from the province have infiltrated. Delete the intruders, you know our People and our Soldiers would have established a primo rapport with the locals of Bamian over the years of operating in the is Area....WHY throw away all that hard work? Finish the job, that's what us Kiwis do!

Hi As soon as I heard the news about 3 of our soliders who were killed in Afganastan I fully understand the pain of how the families feel anout loosinfg their loved ones.Plus I do have a friend that I know her brother serves as NZDF my advice is that I wish John Key can arrange the time about when he would withdraw our troops home from there and it is time fom them to come home ASAP rather than 2013 next yearthe more they withdraw them to come home are much safer than later.
