We Applaud President Obama For Following Through In Afghainstan

Admittedly, we at the ConservativeXpress have been highly critical of Obama's policy to date -- but that is merely because every thing he has done so far is wrong and dangerous.

But initiating a troop surge in Afghanistan to fight the Taliban and other Radical Islamists is the right thing to do to continue the war on terror.

Thank you for the effort, Mr. Obama. Sincerely.

The Associated Press reports:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has approved adding about 17,000 U.S. troops for the flagging war in Afghanistan, administration, defense and congressional officials said Tuesday.

The Obama administration is expected to announce on Tuesday that it will send one additional Army brigade and an unknown number of Marines to Afghanistan this spring and summer. Officials spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of the official announcement.

About 8,000 Marines are expected to go in first, followed by about 9,000 Army troops.

The new forces represent the first installment on a larger influx of U.S. forces widely expected this year. Obama's decision would get several thousand troops in place in time for the increase in fighting that usually comes with warmer weather and ahead of national elections in August.

God Bless America. Pray for our troops deployed in Afghanistan.
