Report How many Afghan refugees are we taking in House prices and the economy Posted 4 hours ago · Edited 4 hours ago by 14stFlyer 44 minutes ago, Staffsknot said: Don't people keep on top of the news - people in Afghanistan are starving to death. If you want a recruiting poster for radicals the west standing idly by is a pretty big one - for reference children being sold to help fund keeping their siblings alive and babies starving to death in overcrowded hospitals, where the staff are working unpaid trying to keep them alive Damned if we do. Damned if we don’t. So, the previous interventionist approach in Afghanistan radicalised extremists. The “do nothing” approach and failing to help the Afghans clearly in urgent need will radicalise extremists. And I have no doubt that if we provide support for the people of Afghanistan remotely (while under Taliban rule) that will also radicalise extremists. I agree with a lot of what you say Staff, but do not accept you (or the West in general) yet have the answers.
