April 4, 2009 Barack Obama fails to win Nato troops he wants for Afghanistan Leading article: Alliance for Liberty | Pictures: Nato Summit | Obama dazzles Europe with campaigning style | Brown under fire over Afghan troopsBarack Obama made an impassioned plea to America's allies to send more troops to Afghanistan, warning that failure to do so would leave Europe vulnerable to more terrorist atrocities. But though he continued to dazzle Europeans on his debut international tour, the Continent's leaders turned their backs on the US President. Gordon Brown was the only one to offer substantial help. He offered to send several hundred extra British soldiers to provide security during the August election, but even that fell short of the thousands of combat troops that the US was hoping to prise from the Prime Minister. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Can you say NOBAMA? Mr. Obama...If you can't dazzle them with your brilliance maybe you can baffle them with your bull schit. It works for the idiot liberals here in the states.
