1. Does he think America is going about this war correctly?
2. Do Brits agree with all American plans? Would they done this differently?
3. Did he honestly belive in this fight - and did he until his last day. Would he fight this exact war again, or was he really 'just serving his country' on this one
4. Does he think the Wikileaks was anything big - or does he think that it really had no impact in the scheme of this 7+ year war?
5. Does he truly believe the iraqi's can hold their own and Brits/Americans Nato troops won't have to return again in strong numbers to hold the fort
6. Does he think the strategy for AfPak should be the same as Iraq strategy considering these are two separate situations and the Taliban is stronger in AfPak Region
7. Does he think Bin Laden and the other top leader will ever be found and killed?
8. What was his worst experience there? What was his best? (not sure how many years he was there -you didn't stay
9. Why did he join the military?
10. Does he think the deaths that have occurred (troops death - not civilians) has been worth this fight?
11. Were the Brits more prepared/armoured than the Americans in the beginning of this war? American's lacked basic body armour a lot in the beginning, rifles that stuck (one of my friends was US Army, over there)
12. Does he think this war can be 'won'. I don't - you won't ever stop the Taliban and Al Qaeda - so not sure what the sense of fighting and all the deaths are for. Not to mention it doesn't guarantee no attacks on other countries by terrorists. So what does he feel we are really in this 'fight' for - at this point?
13. Was he really prepared to die every day? Did he ever second guess it and want to get out?
14. what will he do now for his country or the military in general? Or will he remove himself from this and move into more 'business world'.
15. After this war, would he still highly recommend to maybe his son to join the British forces? Or does he think government is not aligned with reality and it's not worth your life for their agenda?
I run a political blog, so I have an interest in this a lot
Plus, have friends in military, some in AfPak now (suppose to return 2011/12) And, I use to live in DC/VA - 1 mile from Pentagon, so this stuff hits home more when you know those working in there, and see military around ya all day, soldiers with leg blown off, etc.
