White House Denies Afghanistan Troops Rumors

The White House is denying media reports that President Obama has decided to send 40,000 troops to Afghanistan.

The report came from CBS news, saying the President has tentatively decided to send four more combat brigades to Afghanistan and thousands more support troops starting early next year. The White House calls the report "absolutely false," and says no decision will be announced until later this month.

    I would guess there next war will be Obamas war on Iran. Why, if Iran launches missles on Israel, US will have to be involved. Iran has nukes. If this happens, gas prices will reach a new high. Its in Obamas best interrest to have peace.

    They will be going sometime in the future. Bush got blamed for Irak. Obama is making Afghanistan another Viet Nam. We need to bring the troops home and let them play Army on the Mexico border to keedp illegls out of the USA.

    I personally think the goverment in Afghanistan should get more control of the situation than they have.Our troops have been away from their families too long.Once they find Bin Laden what war will the U.S.take on then?
