Senior American military figures have warned Britain that a hasty exit from Afghanistan could strain relations between the two countries.
The Daily Telegraph last week revealed that David Cameron has ordered British commanders to draw up plans to start pulling hundreds of British troops out of Afghanistan within weeks.The Prime Minister is expected to discuss a co-ordinated Afghan withdrawal in London next week.
Well-placed sources said that US generals have delivered a blunt warning to their British counterparts about the impact of an early UK withdrawal.One senior American general is said to have told British commanders that the US would not “bail out” British troops in Afghanistan if Mr Cameron reduces their numbers too quickly.

So we get dragged into their war, then mocked by Obama and told me are no longer America's 'closest Ally' - We then get vaguely threatened by America - Simply because we want to get out troops out.
I'm actually with Cameron on this one.
Actually, the point of this whole Afghanistan nightmare was to smash up al-queda and take out OBL
overall. This was the result of the world trade center attack...world meaning world world, not like baseball's world series type world..
America should jump out early and leave the UK with the nation building crap.
