NATO sending more troops

NATO is going to send 7000 more troops to Afghanistan to compliment the 30,000 President Barack Obama is adding to the force. NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he had received confirmed pledges for the extra troops, with the probability of more countries contributing to the total in the next few months. NATO still needs over 200 more police and military training teams to boost Afghan forces so they can eventually take over security responsibility and allow foreign forces to withdraw.

How many more foreign troops will go to Afghanistan?

The President is expected to send 30-40 thousand more US troops to Afghanistan, but they will not be the only ones going there. NATO will probably be sending more troops as well --Maybe as many as 10,000. What will the international troops be doing? It largely depends on what strategy the US chooses. They're expected to have a significant impact on training Afghans in the civilian sector and law enforcement areas. Whatever role they play, it's very likely they'll be there for a number of years.

NATO is Critical

Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen says NATO is critically important Afghanistan. He says "what sometimes gets lost is there are 42 countries who are working in Afghanistan to try to get this right". Mullen adds a lot of international leaders are focused on that war "and where NATO is providing capability, NATO's got thousands of troops there as well."

Decision on Afghanistan

Deciding what to do in Afghanistan will take awhile longer. Reuters is reporting the White House has put off consideration of sending more troops to Afghanistan while it assesses whether its war strategy can still work after a flawed election that cast doubt on the Kabul government's legitimacy, officials said on Tuesday. The Pentagon had initially expected the top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan, Army General Stanley McChrystal, to make a request for more soldiers soon after delivering his confidential assessment on the war.

NATO and Russia make a breakthrough

Reuters reports the breakthrough would allow three documents on NATO-Russia cooperation to be signed on Friday at the first formal ministerial meeting between the two sides since ties were frozen after Russia's brief war with Georgia last year.

Death Toll In Afghan

As of Wednesday, at least 46 international troops, including 24 Americans, had been killed in Afghanistan this month, according to statements by the U.S. military and the NATO command. That matches the tolls for the two previous deadliest months - June and August of 2008. There are about 57,000 U.S. troops currently in Afghanistan, and the number is expected to rise to at least 68,000 by the end of 2009.

NATO launches attacks

U.S. Marines and Afghan troops launched their long-expected attack over the weekend on the biggest Taliban-held town in the south, seeking to re-establish government control and undermine support for the militants in their southern heartland. The attack on Marjah is the biggest joint Afghan-international offensive of the war and is the largest combat operation since President Barack Obama ordered 30,000 U.S. more troops there last year to turn the tide of the war.
