War weary

Efforts by the government to convince the public that 12 years of war in Afghanistan have been worth the cost have apparently fallen on deaf ears. A Megaphone poll found that half of those surveyed believed that the human and financial costs paid for the war effort were wasted. Only 29 percent felt that it had been worth going to war. Over half of those responding believed that participating in the war had actually increased the threat of terrorism in Denmark and said that the country had participated in too many international wars since the attack on the World Trade Centre in New York on 11 September 2001. – Politiken
