With the recent deaths in Afghanistan to many Australians it has led to debate on Australians role and involvement in the conflict going on in Afghanistan. I think that Australia should bring their troops home to save people’s lives and to end the war.

One of the Australians armies objective is to help prepare Afghanistan for life after the Australian and Americans forces leave by helping them to stabilize their government and help them build a police force trained to deal with crime and Taliban forces. Since being in Afghanistan, Australia has trained almost 700 officers that have been taught to deal with dangerous situations. This group has helped tackle big crime organizations and bring down corrupt officlas.
