Obama approves more troops to Afghanistan

This is crazy!

In an unannounced move, President Barack Obama is dispatching an additional 13,000 US troops to Afghanistan beyond the 21,000 he announced publicly in March, The Washington Post reported.

The additional forces are primarily support forces such as engineers, medical personnel, intelligence experts and military police the Post said, bringing the total buildup Obama has approved for the war-torn nation to 34,000.

“Obama authorized the whole thing. The only thing you saw announced in a press release was the 21,000,” a defense official familiar with the troop-approval process told the daily. Read More

This is what we get from a president that has no experience, 13,000 US troops to Afghanistan when he was asked for 40,000 more troops by his picked commander on the ground. It’s like sending three boxers up against 20 boxers in a ring. These new troops are medical personnel, intelligence experts and military police. He is sending just enough to get more of out young men and women killed. Obama should have sent the 40,000 or bring all our troops home out of danger. General Stanley McChrystal should resign! He has now turned the Afghanistan War into a political War just as Vietnam was and its Obama’s War now not G.W. Bush’s!

  1. Nope, cause President Bush sent all those he order only sent them at different times. Obama made the decision to send this 13000 troops! From the page above: “Obama authorized the whole thing.

  2. Politicalprattle is way off. Obama is not putting off his decision…he’s simply trying to figure out how to lose this war.
    It’s ridiculous to send less than half the troops recommended by the commander IN Afghanistan. Just like you said, enough to keep our men and women getting killed. Win the damn thing or pull out!
    We’ve got a freaking naive 48 year old lawyer running the military…are we crazy????
