Five ways Afghanistan has changed

More troops - Both U.S. and NATO forces have more than doubled the number of troops they have in Afghanistan in an effort to beat back Taliban advances. There are about 68,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan, and the top U.S. commander, Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal wants at least 40,000 more. Overall, there are more than 100,000 U.S. and coalition troops in the country, double the number present when the 218th returned home.
