US troops in Afghanistan outnumber those in Iraq

US troops in Afghanistan outnumber those in Iraq 24 May 2010 There are more US troops in Afghanistan than Iraq for the first time since Saddam Hussein was toppled in 2003, officials say. New Pentagon figures show there are currently around 94,000 troops in Afghanistan compared to 92,000 in Iraq. Up to 50,000 are expected to remain there until the end of 2011 to help train and equip Iraqi forces. [Not to mention, thousands of mercenaries, terrorists, sociopaths, scumbags, druglords and other assorted nutjobs on the Pentagon's payroll. It's an open sewer. --LRP]
