I agree with Obama, more attention needs to be given to Afghanistan and our efforts need to be seriously stepped up. The question is, how is he going to use this influx of new troops? I think we all understand why a surge, as done in Iraq will not work here. Further, the Pakistan issue plays into this in a big way. Politically they are not a stable nation to begin with, how far do we go in forcing the issue with a unstable nation which has nukes? And currently has serious problems with their foe, India. People would speak about how long we might be in Iraq, as that is a concern, the real question is how long will we be in Afghanistan. Personally I see it as another Korea, only with our role being much more active and on a larger scale. As it would be nice to get our hands on Bin Ladin, he is not at the root of our battle with terrorism, it has long evolved past him and our efforts have neutralized him fairly well. He is now nothing but a historic figure head which if killed would do little to harm terrorist efforts. Bush knew this and Obama will learn this. So, what does Obama do, any thoughts?
