Summary The war in Afghanistan. What are we fighting for and is the war winnable? Afghanistan is a complex war in a fractured country with complex tribal loyalties, rugged terrain, and systematic corruption. And against this backdrop Australian troops are in the middle of the deadliest year of fighting they've experienced in the nine years they've been there. 10 Australian soldiers have already been killed this year. Our commitment is relatively small, 1550 personnel, but there are calls from within the military establishment to increase troop numbers to fill the void created by the Dutch withdrawal from the province of Oruzgan. The Chief of the Australian defence force has said he expects Australia to be in Afghanistan for at least another four years but polls in this country indicate that support for the war is dropping. There has been recent criticism from within the Defence Forces in Afghanistan that Australian troops aren't being properly supported in battle. Insight brings together veterans of the conflict, military experts, Afghans and Afghan Australians to talk about Australia's role in this war.
