At the end of January 2009, the US had approximately 36,000 troop in Afghanistan. Troop levels were nearly doubled to 68,000 by November of 2009. Seems the rate of increase will end up being relatively continuous up to the ~ 100k level (once the latest 30k are deployed.)

4. Well, I think this is significant
If President Obama's decision to send 30,000 troops in for 18 months and then start withdrawing is so abhorrent, then where was the outrage while he was sending in 32,000 troops since being sworn in to office?
