"Victory" in Europe

Obama's big victory in Europe? The agreement by NATO to send an additional 5,000 troops to Afghanistan.

Of course, there's a catch.

"White House aides also lauded the agreement by NATO allies to send an additional 5,000 troops to Afghanistan, though they didn't mention that none would be combat troops."

Then whose children will be in harm's way? This agreement simply means that more U.S. troops will be on the front lines, getting shot at, while the NATO troops get the office jobs. In other words, in exchange for the political cover of a 5,000 troop NATO contribution, the U.S. agreed that more of our troops will be at risk.
