More UK troops for Afghanistan

After our "Glorious Leader's" amazing revelations on the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq we find out the real reason why this is happening.

Just 24 hours ago Mr Blair announced to a shocked and awed Commons the withdrawal from Iraq of 1600 troops. No mention that 1000 more would be going to Afghanistan. No this was left to one of his toadies to announce the next day.

Shadow defence secretary Liam Fox said:

"the move showed that British forces were too "overstretched" to carry out duties in both Iraq and Afghanistan."
Let us hope they all return safely.

I must be turning all Tory, but I was just as cynical when I heard the news! But then I didn't vote for them either.
