A New Round Of Garbage For A New Phony Election Cycle

For mouthbreathing american dullards.

Obama likely to cut 10K troops from Afghanistan

"WASHINGTON – Facing a war-weary public, President Barack Obama is expected to call for a major withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan Wednesday night, with roughly 10,000 coming home to the U.S. in less than a year.

The phased drawdown is likely to start with 5,000 troops recalled this summer and an additional 5,000 by winter or spring 2012, according to a senior U.S. defense official. Obama is also weighing a timetable for bringing home the 20,000 other troops he ordered to Afghanistan as part of his December 2009 decision to send reinforcements to reverse the Taliban's battlefield momentum.

The withdrawals would put the U.S. on a path toward giving Afghans control of their security by 2014 and ultimately shifting the U.S. military from a combat role to a mission focused on training and supporting Afghan forces.

Obama is to address the nation from the White House at 8 p.m. EDT Wednesday."

Remember, there are 200,000 military in Afghanistan. 10,000 is purely cosmetic.
When did we heard this bullshit before?
Oh, that's right.
