NATO needs hundreds of trainers in Afghanistan

NATO needs hundreds of trainers in Afghanistan 18 May 2010 International troops in Afghanistan face a shortfall of hundreds of trainers who are supposed to train the Afghan security forces, James Stavridis, NATO's supreme allied commander for Europe said Monday in Washington. Stavridis said Afghanistan needs about 5,200 trainers, and roughly 3,600 are on the ground. NATO's share of the overall training mission is 1,600. "Right now, I've got on the ground or committed 1,150" trainers, he said. "So, I need 450" more. [Or, NATO could just *leave,* which is what *everyone* needs.]
