More Troops To War

President Obama just ordered 17,000 more troops into Afghanistan today. They're part of a surge that could raise the amount of American troops in the area to 60,000 before long. Read more about it here. I know the plan is to take the troops from Iraq, I just hope we're not going to shift them over to Afghanistan. I really hope that the President has a plan to not keep these American men and women in harm's way indefinitely. I have a lot of respect for our current President so I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt in this situation and hope he knows what he's doing.
