Stating the obvious

Stars and Stripes

LANDSTUHL, Germany - U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said on Monday that Afghanistan has made some progress, but the country is "tottering" and needs more troops to finish off Taliban and al-Qaida forces.

"I'm encouraged by the progress in Afghanistan, but Afghanistan is tottering," Clinton said. "We've got to get more support there to make sure we try to finish off the Taliban and al-Qaida that are regrouping, coming across the border. We expect a big spring offensive."

Obvious, but thank you anyway, Senator. If, as President, you'll get us out of Iraq and back into Afghanistan, I'll vote for you.

If you can make it happen sooner, I'll still vote for the Democratic candidate.
