The UK's commander in Helmand has said Britain should not expect a "decisive military victory" in Afghanistan.

He said it was unrealistic to expect multinational forces would be able to wipe out armed bands of insurgents in the country. Brig Carleton-Smith is the Commander of 16 Air Assault Brigade which has just completed its second tour of Afghanistan.
