Obama 'close' to Afghan decision
This is response to pressure placed in Europe mainly UK he knows he really has to release the facts with in two or three days or he will have a big problem with certain members of UN on why they are backing his call for more troops.
UK government will be pushing Obama at this present time and also other members of UN that are pledging troops. Obama has just one problem of how he can explain what and why the action is taking place.
President Barack Obama says he is "very close" to deciding whether to send more troops to Afghanistan and will announce his decision within "several weeks".
Mr Obama also told CNN in China his new strategy would emphasize an "endgame".
The top US military commander in Afghanistan, Gen Stanley McChrystal, wants at least 40,000 more US troops.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll suggests 44% of US adults believe the Afghan war worth fighting, the lowest proportion since polls began in 2007.
The US currently has about 68,000 troops in Afghanistan, contributing to a coalition force of more than 100,000.
He knows he can not hold back for a few weeks and he does not like the fact that people on the internet are making forcast that are true. Not saying me just maybe people like me and my story went down earlier today. lol
