Afghanistan Needs a Surge

Minutes ago, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs said that (paraphrasing) "Afghanistan is an economy of forces operation, which means, by definition, that we need more troops."  The "enemy" in Afghanistan (i.e. most everyone who was born and lives there) has been gaining ground over the last year or three.  If we were advancing for years we'd say we were winning.  This summer, Afghanistan will become America's second longest war, surpassing the American War of Independence.
