Czech public opposes war ramp up

From Angus Reid:

... Just under 500 Czech soldiers have been serving in Afghanistan since March 2004.

On Oct. 1, the government led by Czech prime minister Mirek Topolanek approved the expansion of foreign military missions, including Afghanistan. According to the new plan, up to 745 soldiers would be sent to serve in the war on terror in 2009. The prime minister declared: "We have been gradually withdrawing troops from Iraq. We will participate in two big missions, in Kosovo and Afghanistan."
