The advantage of being in NATO!

I sarcastically commented on Albania's invitation to join NATO that it means absolutely nothing at all, except Albania will be able to send more troops to Afghanistan.

....and look what i find today....

TIRANA, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Albania would send another two batches of troops to Afghanistan to help train the Afghan army, Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha said on Monday.

Berisha said that the tiny western Balkan country would also send an army unit to Darfur, Sudan, to join the peacekeeping forces there.

Albania already has a total of 350 troops in EU-led mission in Bosnia, NATO-led mission in Afghanistan and the U.S.-led forces in Iraq.

"Discussions were underway to increase that by another 100," Berisha said.

Albania, along with Croatia, was formally invited to join NATO at the alliance's summit in Bucharest, Romania, last week.

Welcome to NATO, Albania!

Now for more troops to Iraq and Bosnia!
