Default Obama plans 20,000 troop surge to Afghanistan

The President-Elect's intention to shift the focus of the fight against terrorism to Afghanistan has been bolstered by Robert Gates agreement to stay on as Defence Secretary.
Mr Gates is a strong believer in an Afghan surge, which would not only put thousands more boots on the ground but involve negotiations with malleable branches of the Taliban.

yesterday afternoon, the cbc reported that 10,000 troops were slated for afghanistan. in any case, that's a lot of soldiers. i'm guessing that a draft is on the way in the states.
the numbers will have to come from somewhere.
