From "Carry On Up the Khyber"?
Former British Chief of the General Staff, General Sir Richard Dannatt, agreed 
warfare had entered a new era and needed the support of development 
programmes."In conventional wars, you talk about winning and losing."What we're 
trying to do here is succeed sufficiently to put Afghanistan as a sufficiently 
stable state that can look after itself and doesn't become ungoverned space 
into which al-Qaeda or other terrorist groups could reoccupy," he said.Gen 
Richards comments came as the Foreign Office apologised to a group of MPs after 
a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan and Pakistan had to be called off because of 
a security lapse.Next week's visit by members of the Commons defence select 
committee was cancelled after an unencrypted e-mail was sent out by an embassy 
official in Kabul, prompting fears that the MPs' safety may have been 
compromised.The Foreign Office said it would be trying to rearrange a visit for 
the MPs.A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We
 have offered our apologies for this regrettable lapse in our procedures and 
have assured the committee that we will do all we can to arrange a successful 
visit in the future."
