The United States will send additional than 1,000 further Marines to Afghanistan this month to try to harden development in the south previous to horde reductions begin in July, American military official said Thursday.
The bulk of the forces will be sent to Helmand region, where 20,000 Marines have made gains against the Taliban other than where fighting remains strong in insurgent strongholds like Sangin. American commander are under pressure to quell the aggression and sustain their gains in the first six months of 2011, when the White House will tax whether a troop add to for the nearly decade-old war is working.
bureaucrat at the Florida-based United States Central Command, which has liability for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, said that the Marines were being sent to take advantage of what is usually a winter hiatus for the Taliban and to try to set situation for the fighting season that begins in the spring.
