Abstract: Dirk Rochtus deals with the response of Germany to the United States request for German troops to fight the Taliban in Southern Afghanistan. This would entail a re-vision of the present mandate of the German Federal Parliament, which is keeping the troops stationed in the safe and secure North. The advocates of extra German engagement predict the end of NATO in case Berlin does not lend support to the Allies in Southern Afghanistan. The NATO operation in Afghanistan links the transatlantic dimension to the future of German foreign policy. If the German government goes to war, it will internally land in the opposition. If not, she will loose credit externally.
