In this hilariously hyperventilated HuffPo post (is there any other kind?), Tom Andrews proves, well: Imbecilic.
Embedded in General Stanley McChrystal’s classified assessment of the war in Afghanistan is his conclusion that a successful counterinsurgency strategy will require 500,000 troops over five years…
Would you prefer to have a president who doesn’t shift strategy when he gets this kind of ground troop from the commanders?
Right question. And the answer is: NO!
Which is 100,000 troops per year on a rotational basis, roughly 40,000 more than we have on deck currently, and approximately the number that General Stan McChrystal is expected to request.
The Army only has 548,000 total personnel. The Marine Corps another 200k or so.
Can people really be this stupid and still have access to a keyboard?
