Should our troops be pulled out of Afghanistan?

Yes (96%)
No (4%)

Total Vote Count 218

Have your say

In answer to that question I'd say a big YES to troops being withdrawn from Afghanistan and end this 10 year conflict once & for all.
I have lost count the amount of times we have witnessed troops coming home in body bags & further more our government is spending more of taxpayers money to send troops to Afghanistan to the equivalent of what they are cutting back on in public services like the NHS.
When troops do come home a lot of them suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & due to government cutbacks a lot of then can not be treated with the right medication.
Some of them turn to crime-serious crime.
Our prime minister David Cameron has a lot of answering to do when his government sends troops to die in the Helmland province!

Absolutely| It is not our war, and our troops will benefit our country more by being over here. Too many casualties. Why should young men and women lose their lives doing work their own army should be doing?
