The Government is to increase financial aid to Afghanistan by 40% at a time of austerity at home; in order to provide a veneer of progress prior to a retreat by 2014. Problem is according to news reports, that Afghanistan hasn't the structural capacity to absorb $billions in aid being thrown at them, other than to line the pockets of corrupt politicians or to buy off the Taliban. So, beside wasting lives, we're now wasting money. :roll:
