December 4, 2009

Following President Obama’s announcement on Tuesday that an additional 30,000 U.S troops would be sent to Afghanistan, several european nations have announced a combined total of 7,000 troops to bolster U.S numbers.

However, two major nations have so far opted not add troops. France and Germany, who have never been keen on involving themselves in Afghanistan, have not yet committed to the cause. We shall see what happens next.
