The Epitome of Pointlessness

August 30, 2012

Many a man, over countless centuries, has opined on the senselessness and waste of armed conflict. I have no need to add my words or name to this list. But having thought about this topic today, I cannot think of even the slightest reason for Australian troops to remain in Afghanistan. It seems destined to be another failure of the Rudd/Gillard era, even if the Howard-led Coalition committed our troops to the conflict six years earlier. One of the first tasks Labor should have performed was the creation of an exit strategy for this conflict. There would have been little protest from the public for this course of action. Prime Minister Gillard should do the honourable thing and end this campaign immediately.
