Commentary: Testosterone Slump
WASHINGTON, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- America’s European allies have fallen into the paralyzing embrace of appeasement. Only one German parliamentarian out of 613 openly favors putting German troops in Afghanistan in harm’s way. The Bush administration’s appeals for more European troops fall on deaf ears. Europeans do not believe democracy is attainable in Afghanistan, which is now seen as a failed narco-state. They also blame Iraq for the current geopolitical dilemma.
