How on earth can we win in Afghanistan???

The Norwegian government is ONLY allowing its troops to serve in Kabul - probably the safest place in the country.
Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg repeatedly assured questioners in parliament on Wednesday that the new Norwegian forces being sent to Afghanistan will solely operate in the Kabul area, and insisted that the issue has not split the majority coalition government.

The opposition demanded clarification on this point after Defense Minister Anne-Grete Strøm-Erichsen said Tuesday that there would be no limitation on where the 150 new soldiers could be deployed, while Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre insisted that Kabul was their only sphere of operation.

"We have made it clear to NATO that the forces shall only be used in Kabul and no other place. If they need to be moved elsewhere then this will be a matter of governmental discussion," Stoltenberg said.
