Blair on Afghanistan:

The Daily Telegraph reports that the Prime Minister, Tony Blair, has told the British Forces Broadcasting Service,

"If the commanders on the ground want more equipment, armoured vehicles for example, more helicopters, that will be provided. Whatever package they want we will do".
Better late than never, but we will have to wait and see if his words are matched by deeds.

Still, the Prime Minister will not address the problem of wounded soldiers being threatened by terrorist supporters in civilian hospitals.
Although we're looking, for example, at military-managed wards (in NHS hospitals). To go back to the old military hospitals I don't think would be sensible in this day and age.
On the contrary,with so many enemy sympathisers at large in the community "in this day and age", there is a greater need than ever before for military hospitals.

On one thing Tony Blair was correct:
Our troops have been extraordinary there, I mean truly courageous, to a degree that should give this country enormous pride.
So, Mr Blair, why are they not being treated accordingly.
