New Jersey Peace Action Executive Director Madelyn Hoffman just wrote a piece for OpEdNews on the war in Afghanistan. She starts:
After eight long years, the so-called “good war” in Afghanistan has become the “unpopular and high cost war”—and it isbecoming a quagmire.
General Stanley McChrystal recently requested an additional 45,000 troops for Afghanistan , on top of the 21,000 additional troops sent earlier this year. If honored, this request would bring the total number of troops stationed in Afghanistan to approximately 100,000. Even that large number would be less than what the non-public portion of the McChrystal report states as necessary to “win” the war – 500,000 troops.
