Nato warning over Afghan mission
Nato head Jaap de Hoop Scheffer has warned that walking away from the alliance's mission in Afghanistan would have a "devastating" effect.
Speaking in London, the Nato secretary-general said failure would give free run to al-Qaeda.
His comments come as Afghanistan suffers a spike in violence ahead of elections on 20 August.
Public opinion must be a bit worrying in United Kingdom and now the propaganda masters are trying to sway things to their path. Of course getting rid of the Taliban is the only way to get an assemblance of peace in the area. But I have doubts that such action will stop al-Qaeda as their real HQ is in Saudi Arabia where they are funded.
