More Troops To Afghanistan?

Do you think President Obama should follow the advice of his commander in Afghanistan and deploy thousands more troops?


General Stanley McChrystal , the commander in Afghanistan, has told the Obama Administration the war could be lost if he doesn't get more troops in the next 12 months.

General McChrystal told 60 Minutes that things are probably a little worse than they have been in the eight year-long war. Various reports indicate he wants 30 to 40, 000 additional troops.

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says the president wants to get the strategy right before making any decisions and that's likely to take weeks.

So what do you think President Obama should do? Do you think the president should follow General McChrystal assessment, or come up with his own plan?

    To begin with, when we fight a war, we need to fight to win and STOP being Mr. nice guy. When you have a leader that has no military experience...I would hope he will listen to people that have year's of experience. If we are going to stay in this or any war...when we need more troops ...we don't need to wait two months or a year before we actually get them on scene.
