US Gen. McChrystal takes command in Afghanistan
KABUL – Gen. Stanley McChrystal, a four-star American general with a long history in special operations, took charge of U.S. andon Monday, a change of command the Pentagon hopes will turn the tide in an increasingly violent eight-year war.
McChrystal took command from Gen. David McKiernan during a low-key ceremony at the heavily fortified headquarters of the NATO-ledin central Kabul. McKiernan was fired last month by one year into a two-year assignment.
McChrystal will command the largest international force ever in. A record 56,000 U.S. troops are in the country, alongside 32,000 forces from 41 other countries.
The Vietnam War was lost by the Democratic politicans in control of Washington, DC, at the time. We are about to see history repeat itself.
