Yesterday on Twitter we asked our followers what their thoughts were on the U.S. sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan. We collected some of our favorite responses below. We ask a question to our Twitter faithful once a day, so if you're not yet following @GOOD, make sure to sign up and participate in the conversation. What do you think about President Obama's decision to send 30,000 more troops abroad? Let us know in the comments below.

What do you think: Are there too many hired guns in Afghanistan?
