1. Who's stoked?
I've certainly read a lot of people here who accept the escalation in Afghanistan as a grim necessity. (Whether it is, in fact, a necessity is certainly a point of contention.) But I haven't read anyone who's excited about it, looking forward to pouring tens of thousands of more soldiers in to the meatgrinder.
