What are the Pros and Cons in Afghanistan

A counter-insurgency force somewhere between 10 thousand and 80 thousand is what President Obama reportedly has chosen to go to Afghanistan. Truman Project CEO Rachel Kleinfeld says, "These are always difficult. Insurgencies are hard to win, but we've had a lot of success in the Phillipines and we've had a lot of success training other armies as well." However Georgetown University Security Scholar Paul Pillar disagrees saying, "the bigger our footprint, the more military operations with collateral damage."
