James Jones, President-elect Barack Obama’s new national security adviser, said a U.S. troop surge in Afghanistan will work only if other changes take hold there, including a strengthening of the judiciary and national police force, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The WSJ quoted the retired Marine Corps general as saying that Mr. Obama’s campaign pledge to move as many as 10,000 U.S. troops from Iraq to Afghanistan must mesh with a concentrated international effort to bolster government and eradicate the vast heroin trade.

“You can always put more troops into Afghanistan,” he said. “But if that’s all you do, you will just be prolonging the problem.”
