Tony Blair's most trusted military commander yesterday branded as "cuckoo" the way Britain's overstretched army was sent into Afghanistan.
"...Anyone who thought this was going to be a picnic in Afghanistan - anyone who had read any history, anyone who knew the Afghans, or had seen the terrain, anyone who had thought about the Taliban resurgence, anyone who understood what was going on across the border in Baluchistan and Waziristan [should have known] - to launch the British army in with the numbers there are, while we're still going on in Iraq is cuckoo..."
Hey, I didn't say it. He did.
But I may as well have.
