Time to bring home the troops, Mr Brown

SIR - How many more times will the people of Wootton Bassett have to line the streets to pay their respects to the brave British servicemen and women slaughtered in Afghanistan? The hearses of these brave soldiers have been passing through Wootton Bassett

SIR - How many more times will the people of Wootton Bassett have to line the streets to pay their respects to the brave British servicemen and women slaughtered in Afghanistan?

The hearses of these brave soldiers have been passing through Wootton Bassett since, April 2007. And they WILL continue until the arrogant Mr Brown and his Labour Government turn around and admit that his predecessor, Mr Blair, was wrong to send our troops into Afghanistan and tells the British public that our troops are coming home immediately. No army in history has ever won a war in Afghanistan, so why does Mr Brown believe that he can change history? After eight years, 230 lives lost and billions of tax payers' money spent, the British public still has no idea as to the real reason for our troops being sent out there and feel they are being lied to.

I say to Mr Brown you CAN and MUST bring our soldiers home without delay. Do you truly want your own Vietnam, Mr Brown?
