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

      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.
