I think he promised to reduce the troops during election campaign. But now more troops to Afganistan. This is what cnn reported

what is your view about the troop increase in Afganistan?
First, Obama didn't promise troop withdrawl in Afganistan, he promised troop withdrawls in Iraq. I think a troop increase in Afganistan will have the same effect as the troop increase to Iraq in 2007. We will only be supporting and protecting ourselves. The battle will still rage as we look to find and destroy the taliban.

Should President Obama have fired General McChrystal? Should we revise our approach in Afghanistan? How much longer can we allow this seemingly endless war go on? Is their a bright side to what we are doing?
