Spain's cabinet has agreed to send nearly 900 more troops to Afghanistan, boosting its current small contingent there to more than 1,000 ahead of the country's elections.

The proposed deployment, announced publicly Thursday by Defense Minister Jose Bono, was approved at the weekly cabinet meeting Friday.

Spain to boost Afghanistan force

Well, it looks like Spain may have grown back a bit of its backbone. I'm sure loss of Iraqi reconstruction money had nothing to do with the new socialist government's decision to help our in Afghanistan.

Hopefully it is a win-win for all. Spain gets to hunt down those who killed their own, and the U.S. may get to relieve some troops for duty elsewhere.

Well, this is a bit of good news. Along with the recent news of Jordan offering assistance to Iraq, hopefully it shows a turn in the tables against terrorism.

I am very surprised they are doing this! How long will they be in there before the pull out? (When is their next election?) I guess any news like this is good news...but I don't trust them.
