The leaked report from General McChrystal is calling for us to immediately (within a year) and drastically increase our deployment numbers and Obama says no. McChrystal, the guy with actual experience, says we will lose the war.
One analyst talking about this last night on CNN says we need 600k total in Afghanistan (our troops, Afghan troops, and assorted UN nation troops combined), but Japan is already planning a full withdrawl and most of Europe is refusing to send much more.
This is the "good" war that everyone approved of and voted for, even though nobody wants to move it to Pakistan where AlQaeda actually is, so what next? Does Obama need to change his mind on this war he approved of and supported or do we need to call everyone home and chalk up another loss?
