and you thought he was going to pull troops home??

More Than 17,000 Troops Headed to Afghanistan:
"President Obama will dispatch more than 17,000 troops to Afghanistan, the White House announced Tuesday.
'This reinforcement will contribute to the security of the Afghan people and to stability in Afghanistan,' Obama said in a statement. 'I recognize the extraordinary strain that this deployment places on our troops and military families. I honor their service, and will give them the support they need.'"
So those of you who voted for Obama because you thought he was going to pull the troops home == told you so!

Actually he's more than likely doing the right thing, because since he came into power the Taliban/Al Quida have been slowly testing his reserve -- but that's not why he's doing it ...

His own words say it isn't to fight back either group but to offer security for the Afghan people - so now our soldiers are "Rent-a-Cops" (sorry for all you Security People out there) ...

If this is the case then We (as in 'We The People...') should be charging the Afghanistani government the fees of having the troops over there -- oh wait, that would make us 'mercinaries' wouldn't it?

Nope can't do that -- but something has to be done ...

And if we are over there just as security for the people .... then we shouldn't be over there ... hell, if security is the only necessity to get our troops .... I think the people in Mexico would use them more .... or at least the borders down there (although that might be taken as an 'act of war').

OK, gone off on a tangent AGAIN ....

Just remember that EVERYTHING that was said about Bush about sending troops to Iraq & Afghanistan .... you MUST NOW apply it all to OBAMA
