“How long will it take to turn Afghanistan?”
The approval ratings for the Afghan war in the U.S. are at an all-time low and the death toll of American soldiers is at an all-time high, but despite this President Barack Obama’s top military advisor has called for a troop surge in Afghanistan.
On Tuesday, General Mike Mullen recommended increasing U.S. troop numbers in Afghanistan.
That means that President Obama will have to explain why this war is a necessity to the American people, layout what the objectives are, and give a reasonable estimation of how long it will take, says Korb.
Since taking office, Obama has already nearly doubled the size of the military force in the country.
