If necessary , it is UN peace forces to take charge. US and Nato will lead to more terror and civilians victims.

Poland Will Provide 1,000 Additional Troops for Afghanistan
By Katya Andrusz
Sept. 14 (Bloomberg) -- The Polish government will provide more than 1,000 soldiers for the NATO-led operation in Afghanistan, making it one of the biggest national contingents in the country.
``By February we'll have just over 1,000 troops in Afghanistan,'' said Polish Defense Minister Radoslaw Sikorski at a televised press conference yesterday in Washington. ``Polish troops will mainly be taking part in operations in the east of the country.''
British Prime Minister Tony Blair yesterday urged NATO members to send more troops to Afghanistan, when the organization said the 19,000 soldiers already in the country needed reinforcing after intense attacks by Taliban and al-Qaeda fighters.
The new troops will be located at a base in Bagram, Sikorski said. Poland, which joined NATO in 1999, currently has 100 troops in Afghanistan.
Poland is involved in more than 10 peace-keeping missions around the world. It commands a multinational force in Iraq, where it has been present since August 2003.
