Afghanistan - No more troops says poll


Any attempt by Barack Obama to get EU members of NATO to send more troops to Afghanistan will be strongly rebuffed by voters throughout Europe.

An FT/Harris poll on 19 January showed that 60 per cent of German respondents said they would not wish Berlin to send more troops to Afghanistan under any circumstances. In both France and Italy, 53 per cent of people said their countries should not send troops. 57 per cent of British respondents rejected calls for any more British troops to be sent.
