Quote of the Day

"I accept mistakes were made - but they learned from their mistakes and they built on them and we won the war in the end... A lot of the focus has been on the problems - Passchendaele and the Somme - but we also should focus on the victories." - Lord Astor, grandson Field Marshal Douglas Haig.

Not much has changed in a hundred years. The UK government and others are still learning from their mistakes in Afghanistan, 17 years and counting, and elsewhere; with much murder and destruction along the way. I wonder when the learning will stop?
