Why are people upset that more troops are getting sent to Afghanistan?

Those people signed up , so why get mad if more troops are getting sent ??? Why sign up if your just going to be a crybaby when they ask for more?

  • I don't know. It could be that it's Obama's suggestion or it could be that this has gone on for 8 years with no signs of ending.

  • Those brave people who signed up deserve a better CiC....not the ineffectual weenie they have now. That alone is a good reason to get mad.

  • Or it could be because AlQaeda and Bin Ladin are in Pakistan, not Afghanistan, and all we're doing in Afghanistan right now is fighting the Taliban with not enough manpower and not enough control over the area. We are basically sacrificing good soldiers to be glorified mall cops because there aren't enough (and we won't send enough in large numbers) to fix anything. In other words - they're being treated like cannon fodder.

  • Besides, show me where it's the people IN UNIFORM who are protesting? The anti-war protesters at G-20 didn't exactly look like military folk to me.

  • I guess the MANLY men and STRONG females have been going back and forth to Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001 and 2003 and maybe they are starting to get sick of with combat fatigue and just need rest. Volunteers or not, the troops are only human.
