Just how many troops did McCrystal ask for? Everything I read(courtesy of the corrupt old media) mentions only the 40,000. So 30,000 troops isn't so bad. That's close. Obama tried, didn't he? Somehow the emedia and dem0ocrats are failing to mention the real numbers. McCrystal requested 60,000 troops and 40,000 as a rock bottom minimum. The weak kneed C-i-C gave him less than the minimum and expects him to win with it, and guess who'll get the blame if it doesn't go so well? What a guy! What a magnificent leader! I wonder if the media will ever tell the real story?
