Brown: NATO nations may contribute 5,000 more troops to Afghanistan

Brown NATO nations may

NATO nations may contribute 5,000 more troops to Afghanistan, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Friday, offering key backing as the US decides whether to increase troop levels. Brown launched an impassioned defense of the controversial military campaign in Afghanistan during an interview on the BBC, acknowledging that Britain needed to "adjust our approach" amid rising casualties. But he insisted other NATO nations would step up to help share the burden. Brown says Washington and London "need our other NATO allies to help" and that "we could probably get another 5,000 forces into Afghanistan."
