    Hopefully our forces come through this one unscathed-seems a lot of the taliban have moved on but Im sure there will be pockets of resistance. Support our troops one million percent-I may have some issues with the politicians and some of their decisions but that is not a reason not to get behind our men and women on the front line.

    It does concern me that so many afghan troops are involved in this offensive given some recent incidents,and if our troops feel the need to "babysit" these troops it may affect their fighting ability.

    "Currently a major offensive going on in Afghanistan."

    You mean a major propaganda offensive.
    This is a political thread and the Mods should not allow it.

    Just hope none of them kill civilians, otherwise they wont be able to ever sleep properly again.

    Best of luck to them.
    I don't support the war but do support the soldiers (if that makes sense?).

    I think this one might be controversial:whistling:

    I hope it wont be too long before all our men and women will be back home safe and well

    I don't really know how you couldn't support the troops. They are just doing their jobs, and dangerous ones at that.

    Because it's a job they choose to do - nobody forces them too.

    Hope that makes it clearer why.

    I support the soldiers.

    Yay, we can't have opinions that differ from the BNP OP, typical

    You could create a thread based on people's opinions on the war?

    Doesn't it being on a 'discussion forum' already imply that?:?

    No, its a thread to support the troops. Unfortunately there will be those with a political agenda who will make comments like yours. Ironic really. Hi Dark Knight. :thumbsup:

    BTW, welcome to HUKD "truebeliever"

    Good luck to all our troops against these oppressive people.

    Why do they need support anyway? Its around 15000 troops against about 100 "Insurgents"
    And the troops are using around 100 helicopters and Predator drones.

    It's just a gun show basically.

    Sadly, this " offensive " isn't going to end anything in Afghanistan.

    Agreed. Too many people in Afghanistan have a tribal mentality and can't live in peace with anyone. But its better off to try to rid the country of these people than do nothing.

    Just a shame that some people have a preference for the Taliban than their "own" people. It's quite sad really.

    PWNED: "...there will be those with a political agenda who will make comments like yours"

    I don't respond to personal attacks-especially those from the intellectually and morally challenged.

    There are an estimated 19,000 to 27,000 insurgents are operating in Afghanistan.

    Actually Truebeliever got it spot on. A propaganda mission with the sole aim to increase public support of the war and make out that they are doing something "To protect us"
    The troops have been there for almost a decade, and they are only just launching their biggest offensive? Why not do at the start if it was that bad?
    Common sense people, must be some here somewhere.

    if the invasion isn't a political one, then what is it ?

    There are innocent civilians being killed on a daily basis, killing fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters; wiping out families and therefore creating more 'insurgents'.

    Should an invading force (think romans, vikings etc) invade this country, kill your immediate family members, friends, even leave you alone, and at that as a young boy; how would you react ?

    needless to say, this is a rhetorical question.

    That's rubbish, they can't calculate that number whatsoever.
    They have extreme trouble identifiying them in the first place. If they could indentified tens of thousands of them then they would have killed them by now, not let them walk around for a decade.

    then we have the ever noble USA and britain - formally the empire of britannia; pillaging nations for all they've got; oh, hang on . .

    +1 finally someone who is saying it like it us without being sucked into the propaganda snowball.

    I know for sure if we were invaded and bombed from an invading force with everybodys lives being extremely worsened that i would fight back with every once of energy in me.
