Escalate Afghanistan Crisis?

Are you kidding me?

WASHINGTON - About 3,200 Marines are being told to prepare to go to Afghanistan, military officials said Monday, in an effort to boost combat troop levels and get ready for an expected Taliban offensive this spring.
ISnt one quagmire enough?
Once complete, the deployment would increase U.S. forces in Afghanistan to as much as 30,000, the highest level since the 2001 invasion after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Typical neocon election year ploy ( and transparent) to thin the ranks of democratic (& progressive) voters.

The military began notifying the Marines and their families over the weekend, as Defense Secretary Robert Gates was expected to sign the formal deployment orders.

T o save time Im sure he also signed all there death notifications.

This has to sotp soon!
