    More US Troops To Afghanistan: Will A New 'Surge' Work?

    Some 300 US Marines are headed to Afghanistan, as the Taliban continue to gain and ISIS persists. The US Commander for Afghanistan wants several thousand more. The 2009-2010 "surge" was supposed to produce a victory in the 16 year war. It did not. Will doing the same thing over this time work?

    Let's hope this isn't a case of, "what the generals want, the generals will get."
    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    Yet another surge?... history, even recent, has taught us nothing.

    Don't need a weather man to know which way the wind blows
