McChrystal Predicts A Short Surge




General Stanley McChrystal is confident that the surge in Afghanistan will be a short one.

Even though Afghan President Hamid Karzai says it will take a full 15 years before his troops are ready to take over security in the nation - McChrystal - who heads both U.S. and NATO operations in Afghanistan - says - with the addition of 30,000 more U.S. troops - the tide will change there next year. Setting the stage for a withdrawal during the summer of 2011.
