    As far as Afghanistan is concerned the Brits were doing what was required of them by NATO membership.

    The Brits could have done the same thing as the Germans. Keep their heads down and drink imported beer. Only the Brits, Canadians and Dutch have been effective allies in combat in Afghanistan. The rest of the NATO members avoid combat.

    Seriously, has anyone read the actual cable that supposedly said this? Anyone? I'd love a link to it. I can't really discuss or debate the issue if I haven't even read the document that formed it AS an issue.

    A large number of Brits died on 9/11, we also felt the threat in Afghanistan was a serious one that merited our response. There are other theatres however where we did not have to go in and I hope any future UK PM has a serious think about future partnerships with such an ally.

    Interesting however that if you go back to the original State Dept response to Wikileaks when Clinton said she'd warned your "allies" of what to expect - that same month we signed a nuclear development and co-operation deal with France so our Govt must have had forewarning about your betrayal of us.

    Because it was not the freaking mandate to fight the Taliban. The NATO mandate was to help the Afghans in training and maintaining the peace.

    The US LIED when it handed over the south to NATO, and put the Brits, Canadians, Danes, Dutch and so on in the firing line. The US said the Taliban was defeated... yea right, tell that to the dead.

    Good point. Some here may be getting their partisan panties in a wad over something that is not really the case. Funny I'm not seeing it in credible news sources.

    Thank you. That's exactly my point. I went to the OP's link, and could not find the actual cable or even a link to it. I can't find it covered anywhere else by any other legitimate global media, and I CANNOT FIND THE CABLE THAT SUPPOSEDLY SAYS THIS.

    Now if someone can link me to the cable, and it says what it is purported to say, then I shall gnash my teeth dramatically and decry the stupidity of my government. As long as I hear *crickets* every time I ask for a link to the cable, I'm thinking it doesn't freaking exist. Not like the Daily Mail is considered high-caliber journalism by the Brits themselves, after all.

    It was reported by The Daily Telegraph, who have jumped into bed with Wikileaks to do their PR. I was not widely reported elsewhere. I was looking around the weekend press for discussion, but ti didn't seem to be a hot topic. That doesn't mean it's NOT true, though. I'm sure the government's press officers have been trying to squish too much discussion on the matter.

    Yea but... if true, then there has to be a link somewhere to the cable(s) themselves. As pointed out, no one has provided these links.. either from the Mail (HAHAHHAHA), Daily Telegraph or Wikileaks website. And ALL released cables are on the Wikileaks website.

    Have you tried accessing wikileaks archive? I couldn't do it. Have a go and tell me what you find.
