a muslim chaplain at north carolina university it is really horrible and depressing but. it was in a painful to witness the bleeding wound up on society as a result of one war and destruction as there another and it is it is really unfortunate after all these efforts and all this money and all these struggles and the holiday to little international community and local afghan government has achieved afghanistan today after ten years of us being there i think in many ways it is worse off not better off. well it's a war activists celebrities and politicians are gathering in london in protest of the war in afghanistan are to cyber bet it is there for us in the british capital and now it's i saw slight ivor there have been protests since the war began is this decade milestone making a difference what are the numbers looking like today. the few hundred people
7:05 am
gathered is so for the big hundred thousand they're expecting just yet but the event is really just cake so people certainly are beginning to right now the people here so various different antiwar groups who go they campaign for nuclear disarmament here. on the most recent protest group to set up a kind of prison cell with people wearing orange jumpsuits boss so you can only play a camera or things like that over this is part of the stop the war coalition now the numbers of the last decade in terms of the protests against this in the sensing voices certainly is decreased somewhat as the war dragged on and the seemingly endless war drags on sorry but the numbers big since two thousand and three where the so-called coalition managed to amass one and a half million people so much in central london since then. but one of those issues of this if first choice over the last decade has been jeremy cool with an m.p. with the latest policy and he joins me now jeremy thank you very much for speaking

7:07 am
a matter of time because they're all withdrawn and there has to be development of a political process in afghanistan which has actually been suppressed by the western intervention and they said that withdrawal date military committed. by twenty fifteen is not really secure thing or is that just because they realize they just have to get out of the victory or not those two things i think they realize they have to get out and as long as smoke and mirrors here because the large numbers of security companies that in reality a mercenary else are there protecting installations and also busy promoting the signing of mineral extraction agreements exploitation and resources something i've got to say it's very interesting that the imperial russian government's nine hundred ninety two sponsor devolves into the final result is one drama started and saw as a bad example of this war is in songs about minerals controlling the troops and seventy one percent of the british public in a recent poll last week said he did a little things since he was on winnable is used and you agree with that and that's
