Nato members likely to ignore pleas to share burden in Afghanistan

Cause that's what the West does best, comes together to accomplish a universal goal.

Nato defence ministers meeting today are not expected to offer any more troops for Afghanistan, despite a plea from military commanders for another 7,500 soldiers, alliance sources said yesterday.

Cause during war, people can get hurt, and we can't have that.

The gloomy prediction on the eve of an informal session of the defence ministers in Vilnius, capital of Lithuania, pre-empted appeals yesterday from Gordon Brown and Condoleezza Rice, the American Secretary of State, for other Nato countries to share more of the burden in Afghanistan.

I know much of the world views the war in Afghanistan as an American war. It's not. Unfortunately people won't realize that until something really, really shitty happens. Make no mistake people, they hate America, but they hate you just as much.

Only a small number of nations had troops in the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan, she said. “We believe very strongly there ought to be a sharing of that burden throughout the alliance.” Rice said.

It's going to take a few years but eventually everything is going to boil down to two sides. Unity will win the day. The enemy is unified in its hatred for the west. What's it going to take to get us unified?
