AFP: Obama to decide 'shortly' on more troops for Afghan war
WASHINGTON (AFP) — The White House on Monday promised that President Barack Obama would "shortly" make a decision on whether to pour thousands more US troops into the Afghan war.
...
The US commander in Afghanistan, General David McKiernan, has requested up to 30,000 additional troops, including three more combat brigades and an aviation brigade and support troops.

If they are approved for deployment, it would nearly double the size of the US force, which currently numbers around 37,000.

Gates has said the combat brigades could be in Afghanistan by mid-summer, the season when insurgent attacks and military operations surge

Just like with LBJ, a lot of lives will be wasted. Sometimes I think the AUH2O strategy might have been better. Maybe he can have John Freakin Kerry talk his cheese eatin' surrender monkey buddies into a real surge with a scorched earth policy to eradicate the vermin once and for all. The whack a mole strategy may appease the leftys but it doesn't get the job done. Draw 'em out from under the burkas and out of the baby formula factories and git 'er done.

I'll stop calling him The Big Zero if he grows a pair and steps up like a man.

It is so freaky to hear the rumblings of Chicken Hawks and others,again. You can't kill them all,we have been there,done that. Doesn't work,not even in the most simplistic situations, not to mention the mess that is Afganistan/Pakistan. You should channel your anger, go down and enlist in the Army.

You just need to kill enough to marginalize the rest into submission. Just as a true child molester cannot be reformed, you need a strategy of containment and control. Like roaches they will continue to craw out from under the fridge. The best we can do is to whittle them down to a manageable number that we can keep an eye on. I don't care if they want to remain as terrorists, just so they do not associate with the rest of the world.

There is no co-existence with someone who will not behave. Spend some time counseling inmates at your local prison. Many will not behave and must be kept from society. And like it or not, the world does look to us as the protectors of the planet. It's a role that I personally abhor and would never wish on our country.

Anyone who thinks for a second that we can co-exist in any fashion with these subhumans is living in fantasyland.

Sub Humans? And the actions you support are what exactly? Devine Humans. I'm glad you think so much of our country, there was a time when that were true. No longer, they in fact loathe us in many ways. As for criminals in prison. Just think for a moment, we created them as well. Seems we doing a hell of a good job of creating haters and killers.
