5. That is incorrect. All military branches rotate troops while keeping the number in

a theater the same. Would you rather see a troop serve in Afghanistan from now until June 2014 without getting rotated out? I agree that the war has been way too long and that our country expanded it's initial mission, which was to get bin laden and as many of his lieutenants as possible. I frankly prefer Drone war to deal with terrorists, with the current range for a Drone being around 1500 miles and getting longer by the day, our troops could launch Drones from ships at sea. I honestly don't care about the argument that using Drones is cowardice. Why should our troops risk their lives tracking down murderers when those killers can be killed from long distance?
