    It's taken years, but finally a member of the British government tells the rest of Europe what a bunch of freeloading parasites they are when it comes to their NATO commitments in Afghanistan!

    Ain't that the truth! But whatever else happens, we certainly don't want any more German troops. Their ROE makes it impossible for them to go into combat so they are nothing more than REMFs.

    Time for our EU partners to prove that they are full of something other than hot air and shit!

    Europe got so used to laying back and letting US troops police the world, they've come to expect that US troops bleed on their bahalf.

    It is true, it is fucking emberassing for the soldiers who are employed in those armies. Its the damn politicians who prevent the soldiers from doing their job, if it were up to the soldiers they would be much more involved: after all that s were they are trained for. But saidly it is up to politicians who are afraid of casualties because they are bad for their popularity.

    I don't understand it also, because of the NATO agreement. Since the war in Afghanistan is a direct result of the 9/11 attack on America, shouldn't all NATO nations be involved then (without restrictions: War)? It is just that not all NATO members are taking a real part in the War in Afghanistan, a lot of them officially have a mission of "rebuilding" it (a humanitarian mission).
