In response to Booker's piece
on Afghanistan yesterday, a number of commentators disagreed with his "take" on the situation. One, who called himself "Praetorian" even went so far as to argue that the situation in Helmand was largely under control.
We have, in our own response, charted two years of "tangible, effective and sustainable reconstruction and development" in Now Zad, completed - according to "Praetorian" - "without major incident". The full details are posted on Defence of the Realm
