Yoo Hoo! We’re coming

Splashed all over the TV and newspapers is the story that British and US forces are about to launch a major offensive against the Taliban. Is it really a good idea to tell them first? All they’ll do is stick a few bombs on the main roads and tracks. Then they’ll either hide their guns and pretend to be civilians or pop over to Pakistan for some well-earned R and R.

A few of our troops will get blown to pieces, our leaders will proclaim the offensive a massive success, then once we’ve gone, the Taliban will be back in business as if nothing ever happened. But with an MoD which cares more about press opinion than our soldiers’ lives, it must seem logical to tell the Taliban we’re coming.
