Army must recruit more than 100,000 soldiers to continue Afghan fighting

This war/invasion was based on a lie.  9/11 was an inside job.

Army chiefs insist that thousands more soldiers need to be recruited if Britain is to continue fighting in operations such as Afghanistan.

The force, a senior army source said yesterday, should be increased by 7 per cent to around 108,000 troops. It has been acknowledged for some time that the British Army’s commitment in Helmand province, as well as previous operations in Iraq, has left it overstretched.

The army currently has 101,330 recruits, including full-time reservists, almost 1,000 short of its target. “There is an argument that it should be increased to 107,000 or 108,000,” a senior source said yesterday.
