Soldiers critical about Uruzgan
Half of the soldiers think the mission in Afghanistan does not make sense.
This became apparent during a poll by TV program NOVA of 261 members of four military trade unions.
The chairman of the [officers] union NVO, ex commander of the Dutch army Couzy, thinks that this is worrying. "Top brass shout that this makes sense and that things are going well. However, if asked about it anonymously, most think it has no use", Couzy says.
