Somehow I don't think this was what U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates was hinting at recently when he suggested sending an increase in forces to Afghanistan. 

Then again, who knows. Nothing else seems to be working. 

Today the St. Louis Rams announced that five of its cheerleaders will depart next week to a nine-day tour of Qatar and Afghanistan. 

The mission is actually the second time this year that the cheerleaders have traveled overseas  to visit our troops, promote democracy and ensure our freedom. 

Now if only the girls could inspire the Rams players as much as they did this soldier back in a  February visit to the Middle East.
