Everyone was
told
the war was  going to end in
2014. You were told this was your last deployment to Afghanistan. You were told
a lot of things, now your being told that even after 2014, we will have warriors
in harm’s way. My thought, if the war is over all of a sudden in 2014 by some “magical
reason”, why wouldn’t we bring all the troops home? If it’s not over, why are
leaving a small footprint to remain compounded with the sequestration, it doesn’t
sound like a lot of fun…..or very safe. However, we brought all of the troops
out of Iraq right? Ya, they are out of Iraq and they all moved  back into Kuwait, sitting waiting in case
they have to go back. I can see this happening in Afghanistan, they will be out
of Helmond but we will really be out of Afghanistan? Doesn’t sound like it.

Time for a C-Gar

Speaking
on Feb. 22, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said a portion of the
66,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan will be withdrawn this spring, leaving
32,000 through April of 2014 and an unknown number who will remain
beyond 2014.

The
force of 32,000 gives Afghan officials time to hold their presidential
elections. "Once those elections are completed," Panetta said "we will
then begin the final drawdown."

The Obama
admin is currently talking with U.S. allies in Europe to decide how many
troops will stay in Afghanistan beyond 2014. Pentagon press secretary
George Little said a force of "8,000 to 12,000 has been discussed," but
no decision has been made.  –

Panetta spoke highly of the Afghan military and police forces: "There
is a strong consensus that our mission is succeeding… on the ground
because of the growing role and capabilities all of us have seen in the
Afghan national security forces."
