Totally out of context quote #6

March 31, 2007.

“…roughly 650,000 soldiers.”

Context: This is the number of troops that the Soviet General Staff estimated would be required for a successful occupation of Afghanistan. The Soviet Politburo put a cap on troop levels at 115,000. You can read about the Soviet troop levels in this article in pdf.
