Reader feedback: Time to walk the walk

Re: Slovakia issues statement on 9/11 anniversary, TSS Online, Sept. 13, 2006

This ties in nicely with the announcement on September 11 that Slovakia is ending her participation in Iraq. The Slovak government can talk the talk, but seems unable to walk the walk. Perhaps it would consider helping the Anglo-Canadian and Dutch forces fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan? Or will Slovakia be another useless member of NATO who benefits from its protection without taking any of the risks?
