    Re: Request for more troops in Afgan.
    The general is right. Not enough manpower is stationed there. If we are to make a difference then the US must increase its number of troops for action there. My son was stationed in Helmand province last year with the Marines 2/7. There is a whole city that existed with it partly (greater area) under the taliban. There was clearly a line dividing ops for them and us. How it was explained to me - it was surreal. The stationed troops from US and GB (marines) made many sacrifices, and many efforts to confront them, yet then they were without sufficient equipment at startup. I only hope they increase the troop strength and provide them the right tools.

    How about it A. Cooper, you too, fall for the (Corporate) media requirements (incorrectly labeled by Repubs– for their own mishandling advantage, 'Liberal Media.' No real news available, Oh but complete coverage of a, though talented person, one charged wtih child molestation, having to pay $20 mil to one and who knows to other 7 to save himself, as though he was a king of our country, totally deserving of total media coverage. Sick , Sick and disgustingly Sad! So longed to hear something significant on President, yes The President of the United States' meeting with Russia Prime Minister, of great significance to our USA, but hardly any coverage, even by you. Grossly Disappointed! Your shows should be titled: "Dumbing Down of America, Continued."

    President Obama says, "Let me see...blue tie, check. White shirt, check. Navy jacket, check. I think that is about it, just make sure to keep smiling and you just might pass off as a man about to change the world. You just might get re-elected next time."

    Regarding our last tactics to deal with illegal immigration in Italy, may I ask you what is your immigration status?

    Hello Anderson,
    I just saw on TV the news about the Italian Prime Minister. The reason why Mr Berlusconi did show up with his wife is because they are going through a divorce. Mrs. Carfagna is the minister of the equal opportunity in the actual Italian government. Regards, Romano Spinelli
