One's Observations

A collection of some things I observe along the way.

Retrieving...

"President Barack Obama is quietly deploying an extra 13,000 troops to Afghanistan, an unannounced move that is separate from a request by the US commander in the country for even more reinforcements."

"The extra 13,000 is part of a gradual shift in priority since Obama became president away from Iraq to Afghanistan."

"The White House and the Pentagon both announced earlier this year that the number of US troops in Afghanistan was to be raised by 21,000, bringing the total at present to 62,000, with the aim of 68,000 by the end of the year." (Guardian Article)
