More Change You Can Believe In: Obama to Send More Troops to Afghanistan

Well, now, this is odd:
President-elect Barack Obama intends to sign off on Pentagon plans to send up to 30,000 more U.S. troops to Afghanistan, but the incoming administration does not anticipate that the Iraq-like "surge" of forces will significantly change the direction of a conflict that has steadily deteriorated over the past seven years.

If this "surge" won't significantly change things, why send them in the first place?
