Another 1400 UK troops are going to Afghanistan, and more requests for help from our European NATO allies to support operations against the Taliban in Afghanistan go unanswered.
France and Germany refuse to let their troops in Afghanistan operate in any dangerous areas whilst requests for more helicopter support have fallen on deaf ears. Some nations feel they can sit tight and that terrorism will pass them by. On a day when three French people died at the hands of Saudi terrorists, it is clear that this is no policy at all.
I said it in September HERE, and I'll say it again, with a few notable exceptions, our European "allies" are spineless.
