Should UK troops leave Afghanistan?
The number of UK service personnel killed as a result of the Afghanistan conflict since 2001 has hit 300. Has the time come for British troops to withdraw?
The Prime Minister David Cameron said it was a moment for the whole country to reflect on the sacrifices the armed forces make.
Mr Cameron, who recently warned the country to expect more casualties during the summer, acknowledged that many people questioned the UK's role. But he added that UK forces would withdraw as soon as Afghanistan could ensure its own security.
Do you think Britain's troops should leave Afghanistan? What do you think of the UK's role in Afghanistan? Are you a member of the armed forces? What is your view?
