It is reported in today's Times that General Sir David Richards (took over as head of the Army yesterday) warned of troop shortages in Afghanistan 3 years ago.

What ever your views on the campaign in Afghanistan I am sure that the consensus would be that if the United Kingdom commits troops to a conflict, they should have full support and enough logistics to complete their task.

Seems that the current administration do not.

I think the truth is that without American air cover we would have been well in the cacky by now.
