Afghan Build up Info

The Surge of Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen to Afghanistan looks like it will take longer then originally thought out.

It’s extremely hard to fight 2 wars at the same time and also stomp out fires all over the globe be it pirates or tsunami’s etc.

The top U.S. military officer said Tuesday that he’s confident that most of the 30,000 additional troops that are being sent to Afghanistan will be there by August.

Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters traveling with him in Afghanistan that the first 16,000 troops who already have orders will be in on schedule.

On Monday, Lt. Gen. David Rodriguez, the second-highest ranking U.S. general in Afghanistan, said the rapid escalation of American troops would take longer than expected, possibly as long as 11 months. Rodriguez blamed the delay on the logistical challenges the military faces in bringing in so many forces so quickly.
