Apparently later today Obama will commit about 30,000 more US troops to Afghanistan. I don't know how many are there already but I should guess that adding that many others will take the number of US troops there way higher than ours. Unless the UK media is remiss in reporting casualties, it seems that we are taking a staggering number of casualties compared to almost zero on their part, so what are these 30,000 extra going to do? Sit around and get a nice suntan????
