To do what?
“Germany may finally be ready to increase its troop contingent in Afghanistan. A news report says that Berlin might send an additional 500 troops to the war-torn country, despite widespread public opposition to the war.”
“Germany plans to shift its focus further toward training Afghan forces.”
Train them to do what? Certainly not to fight the Taliban. It’s not the number of German troops in Afghanistan that’s the problem (they’re actually going to send an additional 850), it’s the number of things German troops are refusing (or not allowed) to do.
Merkel bereitet Deutschland auf Afghanistan vor.
