Wyoming’s lone United States Representative, Cynthia Lummis, has a message for President Barack Obama. She says the President should take General McChrystal’s advice and approve a surge in the number of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.
Lummis says the longer President Obama takes to decide on what action he will take in Afghanistan the more American troops lives will be put at risk. General McChrystal recommended a surge of nearly 45,000 troops to mount a counter-insurgency offensive in the Afghanistan conflict with the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
Lummis suggests that many of the troops could be transferred from U.S. Bases in Iraq to the surge in Afghanistan.
