U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said the "deteriorating situation" in Afghanistan poses a security threat to every NATO country and beyond.

Biden said Washington wants to work more closely with its European allies to remove the threat al-Qaida and the Taliban pose in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

He addressed NATO's top decision-making body, a panel of the alliance's 26 national ambassadors, on how to improve its security efforts in Afghanistan.

Biden warned Tuesday that "extremist allies are regenerating" in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and planning possible new attacks on the West.

My first reaction is he is trying to scare other NATO countries out of Afghanistan. Is that what he is trying to do? And then when everyone else leaves, we could leave too without looking like we've run first. Is that what's happening? :eek:
