From der Spiegel: According to a poll published Thursday by the German public broadcaster ARD, 69 percent of Germans believe that the Bundeswehr should leave Afghanistan as soon as possible. This is a 5 percent increase since April of last year, and the highest figure yet in the ARD polls on the issue.
This article then quotes the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung as saying:
“The Afghanistan mission won’t last forever but to end it now or soon, would mean not being able to guarantee the security of the country in Afghan hands, and jeopardizing what’s already been accomplished. The German government should be clear on one thing: an exit by NATO when things are tending toward defeat would be devastating for the Afghans, the region and beyond.”
