OK... so Afghanistan isn't actually the forgotten war anymore. Not since the UK is deploying another 4000 troops into the country in an effort to breed stability.
With Hamas looking like scoring a victory in the Palestinian elections, the US struggling to maintain any form of control in Iraq and now Afghanistan falling apart it doesn't take an geo-political expert to realise that the Wests desire to bring democracy to the Middle East is failing. You cannot force democracy upon nations. Only through education and unbiased action will the World change for the better.
And don't even mention, the farce that is the Lib Dem leadership election. At this rate I'll have no-one left to vote for come the next election.
