Redeploy to Afghanistan

From the AP:

Insurgent activity in Afghanistan has risen fourfold this year, and militants now launch more than 600 attacks a month, a rising wave of violence that has resulted in 3,700 deaths in 2006, a bleak new report released Sunday found.

Afghanistan was the place to which a large majority of Americans and the International community were fully committed to making a change. The resources in terms of troops and money were available to effect a massive change. Much of those resources were diverted and additional resources have certainly disappeared as the world saw us shift the focus to Iraq.

Bush took his eye off the ball and now we risk losing Afghanistan to the Taliban or leaving it to the warlords. Either result is a loss which will damage American credibility for decades.
