IS is chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. He says more troops will go a long way toward solving the problems in Afghanistan. (You have warned about this happening with Iraq. What do you think we're being blinded from?) We're overstretching our army and resources that should be going to Afghanistan are going to Iraq. I'm concerned about the future of NATO and Afghanistan affects that. And the US could lose interest in Europe as a result. (Doesn't NATO's up surge in troops discount that fact?) NATO was supposed to be sending those in the first place. There's a need for more troops and resources and Afghanistan is the genesis of all the terrorism we face.
