As President Barack Obama continues dithering on the decision to send reinforcements to our troops in the field in Afghanistan, many of those around him are urging him to send more troops quickly. These include the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense. What Obama will eventually do is as of yet unknown.
Unfortunately there is also this horrifying news:
But administration officials cautioned that Mr. Obama had not yet made up his mind, and that other top advisers, among them Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and the White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, remained skeptical of the value of a buildup.
Man, I hope he doesn't talk to Biden. He's a retard. He's been wrong on just about every foreign policy issue since 2004.
We need to surge up to 60,000 troops in by February and give them the counterinsurgency strategy which will eventually decrease all casualties: US, NATO, and Afghan and will halt the Taliban. With the Taliban weakened in Afghanistan, the Pakistani military can close in on the other side of the border.
Is it easy? No. Thousands of people will die (hopefully all Taliban and al Qaeda). It will take at least a year and maybe five (if not more). But unless you're REALLY hankerin' for a jet to fly into another office building, we better get the job done.
