Following an interview with former UK soldier Joe Glenton, discussing why he could morally no longer support the war in Afghanistan, the synopsis for the interview suggests that by staying at war, he would "honour his commitment... to the people of Afghanistan". This of course suggests that the reasons for the invasion of Afghanistan were based on altruism, something now widely disputed by the general public.
But what he experienced there led him to make the hardest choice of his life.. to honour his commitment to his colleagues and the people of Afghanistan or abandon his men, break his promise and run away to the other side of the world
