“The new strategy will call for an additional 4,000 troops from the 4th brigade, 82nd Airborne Division out of Fort Bragg, N.C. , to train Afghan forces, U.S. officials said. As the administration trickles in more forces, it will also “surge” of hundreds diplomats and civilian specialists to help run elections, fighting rampant corruption and battle increased narcotics trafficking. It also calls for tripling economic aid to Pakistan.”
Doesn’t sound too bad – together Allied forces can do it! Check out this nice video of the Polish “Alfa” combat group in Afghanistan.
“The fiscal stimulus bill being debated in Congress not only won’t help the economy, it will make the recession much worse, says Peter Schiff, president of Euro Pacific Capital.”
100% agree – I come from Poland, a former communist country. The Obama “more government” approach in the economy reminds me very much of the socialist way of handling the economy and doing reforms! In 1970’s first party secretary of Poland Gierek promised economic reform and instituted a program to modernize industry and increase the availability of consumer goods, doing so mostly through foreign loans (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Gierek)… LOL ! That sounds like Obama! Later in the 1980’s we have seen a hyperinflation of the Polish Zloty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_z%C5%82oty) just like Peter Schiff predicts for the USA!
