Is Afghanistan worth it?


With the deaths of three more Kiwi soldiers in Afghanistan, have you changed your mind over our presence in the country?

Three more New Zealand soldiers were killed when an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated in the north-east of Bamyan Province. One of the soldiers is rumoured to be a woman, the deaths bring the total number of Kiwi service men and women in the country to ten.

Prime Minister John Key says the deaths do not change immediately our exit strategy from the country, but John Key told Marcus Lush the Government is considering an earlier pull-out.

Should we be there or shouldn't we? When do we bring them home? Does your opinion change with every Kiwi death?
