Afghanistan: Get the Troops Out NOW!

The hundredth British soldier was killed in Afghanistan today.

Afghanistan is a distaster for occupier and occupied alike: NATO forces are bogged down, deeply unpopular, facing more and more resistance and bringing mayhem rather than democracy.

When our media says "Taliban killed", the reality is usually that ordinary men, women and children cut down, and this is uniting the Afghan people against the foreign invader. We demand Brown pulls the troops out, because British soldiers shouldn't be dying in a futile war, and there can be no progress in Afghanistan while it is occupied by foreign armies.
