Total 50 Countries 128,961 troops stationed in Afghanistan.

The United States has requested for FY 2013 $96.7 Billion for Overseas Contingency Operations in Afghanistan. President Obama, has also brought home the remaining 33,000 surge troops from Afghanistan leaving the current 90,000, with plans still ahead to withdraw from Afghanistan by 2014.

Newly Elected President Fracois Hollande has kept firm on his campaign promise to bring home all 3,308 French troops by the end of 2012.

If I was having such horrible fiscal situations like Spain, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, I may want to consider ending operations in Afghanistan, granted this puts more pressure on the Americans, and the Other NATO forces, but when you can’t afford something you shouldn’t spend on a very unpopular 11 year long war when you have millions of people back home unemployed, and your economies continue to sink into deep recessions and depressions. I’m just saying I know it’s not cheap to have as many troops as those four countries do stationed overseas.
