Camerons Afghanistan Mission Accomplished Claim Slammed

Asked if  troops would leave next year with their mission accomplished he said: \”Yes I think they do. I think they can come home with their heads held high.\”His remarks were immediately criticised for echoing US President George W Bushs triumphalist comment at the end of the Iraq war in 2003 which preceded that countrys collapse back into violence, something it is feared may well happen in Afghanistan.Labour MP Paul Flynn, a regular critic of the operation, declared on Twitter: \”Afghan mission accomplished: 426 UK dead, 2,000 grievously injured, uncounted Afghan dead, £40bn UK cost, Crook Karsai rules, drugs rampant.\”The prime ministers spokesman later repeated the sentiment saying \”of course\” Cameron did not regret making the comment.
