So Barry asked Europe to send more troops to Afghanistan to assist the Americans. Belgium offered 35 and Spain 12 (not 1200, but 12). France just said no, and thats about it. The UK offered several hundred extra troops. Less than Barry hoped for, but somewhat more than the 47 men offered by Europe. Laughable. Now the last thing Barry should be doing is offending his friends, perhaps he doesn't realise who they really are?
