Blair Spin - Re; Brit Troops 'Withdrawal' - Read 'Redeployment' ...
So, it seems someone sneakily switched on the spin machine while a whole lot weren't watching.
Well, well, well.
We wonder why we're not surprised?
Anyway, as from this afternoon -- ref; British troops 'withdrawal' ; now read 'redeployment'.
Grab a good gander at this.
More UK soldiers for Afghanistan
The Army expects a major Taleban uprising in the spring More than 1,000 extra British troops are to be sent to Afghanistan, the BBC has learned.
Defence Secretary Des Browne will give details of the new deployment to the House of Commons on Monday.
Shadow defence secretary Liam Fox said the move showed that British forces were too "overstretched" to carry out duties in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
The move comes as the government announced that about 1,600 troops would be withdrawn from Iraq.
BBC defence correspondent Paul Wood says commanders on the ground are "screaming for more troops" to deal with the Taleban's expected spring offensive, but Monday's announcement is still likely to be controversial.
"Yet it is the British troops once again who are having to reinforce - the third or fourth reinforcement."
How much more sickening shit such as this, should the UK's paying public swallow before starting some sort of 'surge' of their own?
