‘I struggle to see what’s liberal about being happy to abandon Afghans to their fate, seemingly without a care in the world. I am not accusing you of this, Deerey, I am speaking in general about the likes of Owen Jones and Aaron Bastani, who have aired their opinions which amount to anyone supporting troops in Afghanistan is morally wrong, while supporting troops out and peace is the only righteous option.’
I’m pleased about that, because that’s not what I think. I don’t think we should be pulling out and have no idea what Jones and Bastani have been saying. My comments were in response to LKs and BSs views about the UK acting like a charity and a reminder to them about the origins of involvement and our duty of care, at the very least. Nothing beyond that really. I fully agree with your last post.
