    ... Floated in Afghanistan:

    Afghans welcome NATO expansion, Taliban threaten

    Of note:
    "NATO foreign ministers approved mission rules on Thursday for an expanded Afghan peacekeeping force next year, which Washington hopes will allow it to cut U.S. troop levels in the country.

    The agreement leaves the most dangerous counter-insurgency work in the hands of the 20,000-strong U.S.-led force but gives NATO more scope to help Afghan forces with training and other tasks such as disarming illegal armed groups."

    Shame we can't try this in Iraq. But with that multinational coalition, we should have plenty of security forces, no?

    Sorry, but what's your point? Do you think the NATO forces would do a better job than ours? Do you think they should clean up "our mess"? Do you think the job would get done faster if there were Dutch and German troops there too? Are there not enough troops there now?

    What evidence do you have that things would be going better than they are now if this was done?

    It's called sharing the burden and rotating our people out of harms way more often.

    I had another thread I started about the split of the Dem party, but because it dealt with Iraq as the split, it was closed.

    As far as this thread goes, we even talked a great deal about this very topic a great deal last week in one of the other 23 Iraqi threads with Da.
