Theresa May Hikes British Troops in Afghanistan to 1000 to Meet Trump Demands
albawaba -

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has decided to increase the number of British troops in Afghanistan to over 1,000, as the NATO military alliance tries to meet the demands of US President Donald Trump.

Preparing to address an ongoing NATO summit in Brussels, May committed 440 more troops to the alliance’s mission in Afghanistan this week and urged other member-states to fulfill their commitment to spend two percent of their GDP on their militaries, just like the UK does.
