If they won't scratch our back...

I have been muttering to myself for some days (though, unusually, not on this blog) that if our NATO allies - with the honourable exception of the North Americans - are not prepared to pull their weight in Afghansitan, and if we are going to be obliged to plug the gap ourselves, then we should withdraw our Bosnia garrison.

Now it appears that the Government has decided to do just that. Of course, they’re being too diplomatic to say so. But the timing is very suspicious.
