If the other European members of NATO actually delivered on their promises regarding troop commitment to Afghanistan then we'd not have as much pressure to keep our "Fit for service" numbers up.

It makes me sick that we're having to send more and more troops out to the most hostile regions of the country there whilst 3500 Germans are in the north literally pissing their manpower up the wall.

I understand how it's a serious problem and one that needs to be addressed, however it's to be expected when our troops are under such duress.
