Afghanistan: is the conflict worth it?

Afghanistan: is the conflict worth it?

(Updated 5:47am 1st September 2009)

Questions are again being asked about the price we're paying in Afghanistan.

It seems not everyone's sure the conflict's worth it, including some top military officials.

It comes, as the Lord Mayor of York John Galvin waves off his own nephew this month.

26 year old William Bath from Huddersfield is a soldier and is doing a six month tour of duty in Remi in Afghanistan.

The funeral of the first York soldier to die in the war will be held at York Minster tomorrow. Lance Bombardier Hatton, 23, became York’s first victim of the war in Afghanistan when he was killed in a double-explosion in Helmand on August 13.
