British casualties in Afghanistan

#1
As we are I believe part of the EU forces in Nato. How are our European
cousins casualties compared to the UK contingent.?
From what I have read it seems that the British, Canadian and US seem to be the only troops fighting and dying in this war.
Living part of the year in France you never hear much about their participation in the EU force, though they do have troops there.

Historically, the Taliban were based in the Helmand, Kandahar, and Uruzgan regions. As the largest contributor of forces, that is why the US, Canadians and ourselves have these provinces. When the country was first divvied up by ISAF, the US troops decided they wanted RC North and East as this was where Bin Laden was presumed to be and they wanted to find him. As America's big buddy, we then said "Fair enough, we'll have RC South" As it was deemed the second most tactically important region. All other contributors where then sent to the more benign areas. This of course was when a protracted conflict was unimaginable, 8 years later areas of responsibility haven't really changed.

It was little more than a roll of the dice.

Edited for chad spelling of Uruzgan (Still may be incorrect.) 8O

Don't see why we can't say enough is enough,we are pulling out up North for some easy living like the Germans etc,have some beers,birds and put the feet up.
Tell the Germans etc get down there and do your bit along with other malingering nations.I have never been so disgusted with our so called EU Friends!
If we pulled out of the EU we would have enough cash to give every soldier his own Helo never mind the rest of the kit.
Major,Blair and Brown have sold this country out not forgetting that old Sailor Queen, lying Ted Heath.
We are in deep trouble.
