The Netherlands is pullng out of Afghanistan after four years of deployment with NATO forces fighting the Taleban. 

General Peter van Uhm – commander of the 1,950 Dutch soldiers said they “had seen security improve significantly in Uruzgan province.”

The Dutch forces were highly regarded for not routinely shooting the locals or indulging in the popular coalition forces sport of ‘pilotless drone assasinations’.

The Uruzgan province the Dutch were working in is going to be taken over by the Americans and Australians. Reports that large numbers of residents are preparing to leave before they get there cannot be confirmed at this time.
