[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWX794aJ_y8&feature=player_embedded]YouTube - 500,000 Troops Needed for Afghanistan?[/ame] As Dive asked if I would, I have created this thread about Andrea Mitchell's report on MSNBC that we would need 500,000 troops in Afghanistan over the next five years. 500,000 troops on the ground. Mitchell is right in saying we can't expect the Afghani Army in stepping up to that. And can we expect the U.S. and Nato forces to give even half that? Rewatching the video Dive, nowhere does she say 500,000 American Troops, just like I said 500,000 in general in the other thread. Do you still believe it to be a mistake?
