Afghan surge
BRITAIN is preparing to send up to 600 more troops to Afghanistan to bolster the 7,800-strong force fighting the Taliban, write Michael Smith and Andrew Wander.

The deployment of an extra infantry battalion follows pressure from America for more troops in southern Afghanistan.

They will be sent out in May, when the new British force led by paratroopers replaces the 52 Infantry Brigade. It will be the first time all the elements of the Parachute Regiment have fought in one theatre at the same time.

From the same article. 600 to Afghan and......

The likelihood that 600 British troops will be sent to Kosovo increased last week when a senior British source in Pristina said he expected the local Nato commander to ask for reinforcements.
All you 3 star cadets out there.... get your kit ready, and watch some war films.

Is this NATO propaganda?

If the taliban think there will be ALL those soldiers on the ground, perhaps they won't attack? Along with the extra from the USMC, where will they house them all?

Along with the Balkans, is AQ doing some devide and conquer tactics?

I belive the G1098 is running out of good soldiers!
