    U.S. to keep more troops in Afghanistan as violence spikes

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:26 am

    Maybe Obama learned a lesson from Iraq, but it’s too late in some ways. The violence is spiking in Afghanistan because he was stupid enough to announce when we would be withdrawing from the fight. The Taliban see this date as their chance to take back what they lost. I hope leaving behind some troops is enough to squelch the violence, without our troops getting hurt and killed.

    The United States will keep up to 1,000 more soldiers than previously planned in Afghanistan into next year, outgoing U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said on Saturday, in a recognition of the still formidable challenge from Taliban insurgents.

    Hagel, confirming a change in the U.S. drawdown schedule first reported by Reuters in November, said the additional forces were needed because delays in signing security pacts had impacted plans to raise troops from other countries.

    However, he also said that a particularly violent surge of Taliban attacks in Kabul in the last two weeks was a reminder of the continued need for a foreign presence.

    Why do they continue to announce our plans and time tables to the enemy? Stupid! I also have my doubts about 1,000 extra troops being enough.
