Afghan Debate

It’s a very interesting debate going on now about our role in Afghanistan. Obama’s trying to focus on specific goals and the military chiefs are advocating more troops. Are these two ideas mutually exclusive or ???  The only problem I have with using more troops is the end game. How long do we have to stay? Seems to me the minute we pull out, some else moves in to fill the void. Tough problem. At the very least I’m comforted that no one is using the term ‘evil doers’.

Genghis Khan, the Russians and the Brits,
All invaded and then called it quits.
A small piece of turf
On the ass of the Earth.
Afghanistan keeps giving us fits.
