The British government is trying to shore up the public faith in the Afghanistan war effort. The British public support for the effort is dropping after the death of eight British soldiers during operations over a 24 hour period.
The death toll on British forces has surpassed that of the Iraq war toll. The British death toll during the Afghanistan war has eclipsed the Iraq war total and now stands at 184.
There was little support for the Iraq war in England. Many viewed it as a mistake and regretted ever offering support and aid to America and George Bush in the efforts.
The violence and danger in the Afghanistan war are both elevated and higher than that of the Iraq war. With the British death toll already surpassing that of the Iraq war, many people in England are questioning the level of involvement that they and there countrymen should take in Obama's war.
We will look forward to our English correspondents take on the current level of British involvement in the Afghan war shortly.
