Hundreds of newly graduated Afghan National Army soldiers wait for their deployment orders at a training facility in the outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan. NATO's initial goal of reaching 320,000 Afghan National Security Forces will be slashed to a mere 220,000 ANSF - many analysts sustain that this is not an adequate number to achieve the security goals of post 2014 Afghanistan (and the year when most NATO troops are scheduled to leave). ©Javier Manzano
