commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The White House leaks an improved NATO troop commitment…maybe….

The Wall Street Journal is out with a piece today (Friday night, right?…When nobodies looking, except us) that details the United State plans and hopes to have 3,000 to 5,000 more troops sent to Afghanistan to help President Obama’s expected troop increase, or ‘surge’…..

Funny..the piece says the announcement could be made by November 30th…just about when the Commander-in Chief will make his troop announcement…or right after……

My guess is they are going to have trouble getting more troops (or even keep the ones they have) from Germany, which has had trouble accepting the fact the troops are there to do a little fighting and having casualties which is normal for this type of thing…These causalities are the  first  Germany has had since World War II…..
