Top US senator warns that failure in Afghanistan, Pakistan could bring danger

The chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee is warning that failure in Afghanistan or Pakistan could cripple NATO.
Democratic Sen. Joseph Biden says many NATO allies of the United States "thought they were signing up for a peacekeeping mission, not counter-insurgency operation.
He told a luncheon crowd Monday at the Council on Foreign Relations "it is time for NATO to be fully in the fight."
He said he believes "the future of NATO is at stake _ in Afghanistan."
Biden was just back from a trip to Afghanistan and Pakistan.
He said the stakes are as high as they've ever been for the future of those nations, NATO and the United States.
