All Change In Afghanistan ...
This is newly promoted, Brit 4 Star General, David Richards. He's today taken over command of the NATO force that's just taken over the job of trying to clear up the shit still engulfing Afghanistan.
Here's a bit about it all.
NATO has taken charge of Afghanistan's eastern provinces, which have been under the control of US forces since the Taleban were ousted five years ago.
The alliance's International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) already commands troops in the north, west and south of Afghanistan, as well as Kabul.
Officials say the move will make the force more efficient, as it seeks to secure Afghanistan for reconstruction.
Afghanistan represents the biggest ground deployment in Nato's history.
Some 10,000 US troops have come under the command of Gen David Richards from the UK.
The addition of US troops brings the total number of troops under NATO command in Afghanistan to about 31,000.
