Ashdown urges Afghanistan withdrawal

Ashdown urges Afghanistan withdrawal
The UK should withdraw its troops from Afghanistan as urgently as possible, Lord Ashdown has said, warning it is "not worth risking one more life" in the conflict.

Writing in the Times, the former Lib Dem leader said it had become clear that Nato had lost the war in the country, describing the international community's efforts as "divided" and "chaotic".

"All that we can achieve has now been achieved. All that we might have achieved if we had done things differently, has been lost," he writes.
