From today’s (18th Feb) Guardian Newspaper:
‘The “folly” of British decision-makers who committed the country to the conflict in Afghanistan lay in trying to change the world without understanding it, the head of the British Army has said.
You have to have “insight and understanding before you arrive at a destination”, General Sir Nicholas Carter..’ (no relation!).
I wonder if any of our present ‘decision-makers’ are listening? I wonder, will they understand, will they bother?
