Are Other Nations Still Doing Their Part?

Many European nations have not kept their commitment regarding troops and equipment for Afghanistan, but I am reluctant to say they are not doing their part. More than half of the forces assisting the Afghan fighters, or providing security in Kabul, were from countries other than the United States. France deployed nearly one-fourth of its navy and Great Britain sent its largest naval task force in 20 years.  Australia, Canada, Norway, Denmark and Germany were among the 17 nations which sent forces. America could not have done its work without critical support from countries like Pakistan and Uzbekistan.
Japanese destroyers refueled coalition ships in the Indian Ocean. The Turkish air force refueled American planes. Afghans received treatment in hospitals built by Russians, Jordanians, and Spain. They also have received supplies and help from South Korea.
