BRITISH troops battling the Taliban are to withdraw from one of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan after agreeing a secret deal with the local people. Over the past two months British soldiers have come under sustained attack defending a remote mud-walled government outpost in the town of Musa Qala in southern Afghanistan. Eight have been killed there.
It has now been agreed the troops will quietly pull out of Musa Qala in return for the Taliban doing the same.
These are the people that did aid in the attack of the US, these are the people we should be working to defeat, and Bush has given them the space they needed to not only survive, but regrow to again threaten their nation.
Bush will be the only American president to lose two wars, and he will have done it at the same time.
