More troops.

More war.

More money.

We’ll hear more next Tuesday, but this NBC News bulletin announces that the President is expected to send 35,000 more troops to Afghanistan. McClatchy has the same figure.

Jeff and I will wait to make a bigger analysis on this news after the President addresses the country and gives his reasons for his decision. Until then you can listen to our podcast on the subject of Afghanistan, and if you’ve got the time check out this piece from Frontline.
