NATO allies may commit 6,000 troops for Afghan war

NATO governments may increase their fighting forces in Afghanistan by up to 6,000 soldiers in response to President Barack Obama's expected call for tens of thousands of additional U.S. service members, diplomats said Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

6,000 NATO troops is just a tad more than half of what Obama and his generals requested. He was looking at getting at least 10,000.

What NATO has provided, in terms of troop commitment, is just a token amount, which was predicted here as the outcome of Obama's plea for more NATO troops.
