‘Afghanisation’ of Afghanistan is the key to beating Taliban and bringing troops home, says Brown

Brilliant!

Gordon Brown yesterday issued his strongest hint that British troops will start to quit Afghanistan by the end of next year.

In a major shift of strategy, the Prime Minister said a target to train up 134,000 Afghan soldiers will be brought forward by a year to December 2010.

He announced that cutting troop numbers was now ‘the basis of our strategy’.

Mr Brown spoke as two more soldiers’ bodies were flown home for burial. So far 212 soldiers have died in the conflict.
