Time to leave Afghanistan is now, not 2014

At six more service deaths in Afghanistan (News, March 8), politicians look sombre, restate the 'rationale' and talk of sacrifice - of others. The military speak of 'progress' and 'finishing the job'.

I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling outrage at virtually no strategic direction and, frankly, cowardice at not daring to admit that enough is enough - right now, not at the end of 2014, after yet more avoidable deaths and bereaved families.
