Even add 20-40,000 to that equation, and we're talking about only one troop per 140-175 civilians, assuming all those are involved in security operations, which they surely will not be. Not even close to the one-for-five we had in Kosovo. So essentially 40,000 more troops is like spitting in the ocean." Quotes-end.png
