UK Leadership Shows Signs of Adulthood

Labour admits: we made mistakes on Afghanistan

"The defence secretary, Des Browne, will admit today that Britain and its Nato allies seriously underestimated the strength of the Taliban and the violent resistance faced by western forces in Afghanistan. "The Taliban's tenacity in the face of massive losses has been a surprise, absorbing more of our effort than predicted and consequently slowing progress on reconstruction," he will say in a speech to the Royal United Services Institute in London."

What are the odds we never hear such words from anyone in the Canada associated with this looming fiasco.
