Officials: Gen. McChrystal Now Seeking 80,000 Additional Troops for Afghanistan

Now McClatchy Newspapers is citing officials in the Obama Administration and military as saying that the General’s “low-risk” option was actually even higher, asking for 80,000 additional troops for the war in Afghanistan.

The rub, however, is that with 68,000 US troops already in Afghanistan and 120,000+ still in Iraq, in addition to all of America’s assorted other imperial requirements around the world, the US military simply doesn’t have anywhere near the number of additional troops just lying around that the general wants to throw at the eight year long conflict.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are only two ways for Obama to resolve this; fill the gap between troops available and those desired through the reinstitution of the draft, or hire more contract mercenaries.

There is no middle ground here.
