It's just a shame that he had to drag it out.

UK announces around 600 troops are to be deployed to Afghanistan to assist British nationals to leave
US and others laying groundwork for Afghan embassy evacuations

Is this the beginning of another Saigon airlift?

It is often said we should study history, so that we don't make the same mistakes again.
So, did anybody study the nearly 150 year period covering what we call the 'North West Frontier'.

I visited the Punjab (specifically, Amritsar) in 1984 - during the tension that led up to the assassination of Indira Gandhi. I was there purely as a tourist, but we were warned not to stay overnight, and not even to attempt to visit the Golden Temple. There were armed Indian Army guards on the day-train from Delhi.

That experience has given me a lasting interest in colonial events such as the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, and in general the events following the Partition of India in 1947. The British Empire doesn't come out of that period covered in glory.

That's a very mild critical assessment of the situation.

Much more history before that time period. Check the history of:
Foreign Office
Colonial Office
War Office
Commonwealth Relations Office.
Board of Trade.
& one year in particular: 1966 (no not the World Cup final).
Administrators of the British Empire
Not much changed in 229 years of bureaucracy asides from name changes.

In online videos Davison spoke of being "beaten down" and "defeated by life".
One would expect that to come from a 40/50/60/70, but a 22 year old?

Greed at work
He claims he "has suffered and will continue to suffer lifelong damages" as a result of the artwork, including "extreme and permanent emotional distress" as well as "interference with his normal development and educational progress" and "medical and psychological treatment".
So, why now nearly 30 years later?

Listening to A General on TV Speaking 'bout Sending these 100s of Thousands of Afghans to Forts and Bases All Over US of A.

Providing them with All Needs.

Has an Equal Compassionate Helping Hand EVER Been Offered to Any of 100s of Thousands of US Citizens Populating Streets in Cities All Over Our Country?

Granted, Most would Tell Then to Go F themselves.

Still, If U S of A has This Ability and Monies to HELP Afghans, certainly if Can be OFFERed to Our HOMELESS. A GOoDly amount would Accept Help, such as being Offered to Afghans.

But Wat do I Know. Or Care?

Yep

May we All have a METAMORPHOSIS. REASON. GOoD JUDGEMENT and LOVE and ORDER!!!!!

As we have seen over the past 18 months, politicians & scientists are not a good mix.
