Should the UK Forces pull out of Afganistan so they can carpet bomb it and level it for good ?

Update:

Since 2001, 109 British personnel have died in Afghanistan. A total of 12 British personnel, including the first woman, Cpl Sarah Bryant, 26, have been killed there since 8 June.

Update 2:

Taliban militants slashed the hands and legs of five abducted policemen in southern Afghanistan and hung their mutilated bodies from trees in a warning to villagers against working with the government

    thats what i yous to think, but there are good(ish) people who still live there, and also osama lives in caves so the bombs wouldnt even touch them, unfortunately they have to stay for the forceable future, lets just hope the americans dont kill anymore brits. Also what teddy said, is wrong the british are not getting their arses kicked they are doing an excellent, they are pushing back the taliban

    Of course not. Where would MI6 get their opium from if it was all carpet bombed? By the way, I have a friend who lost her brother to that opium here in the United States. Elements of the CIA and MI6 are known to be the world's largest drug traffickers. Isn't it amazing how the opium production in Afghanistan has actually increased to the point where it now accounts for more than 93% of the world's opiates, after the coalition invasion and occupation?

    Are you insane?Why would you want to slaughter tens of thousands of innocent civilians?The UK government has no right to send troops to Afghanistan,the Taliban are not threatening the UK.If you invade another country,you can expect to be shot at.The 109 deaths are a direct result of British arrogance.I understand that the UN sanctioned the invasion of Afghanistan,but Britain could have vetoed it.

    No, because perhaps you just haven't realised the size of the place, and in the process would kill ordinary Afghan people and not just the Taliban. The UK troops should not even be there, its a war that no one can win. Going on past history, the Russians have tried and got their arses kicked

    i get your point and more soldiers are going to die there. Yesterday i think it was, 14 French soldiers were killed and another British soldier, as i said, we should all come home and leave them to it. They are just making more widows, and bereft parents.

    No I don't think that is a good idea at all, the decent people of Afghanistan have suffered enough.
