Or send your questions to General McChrystal

Will Afghan troops be ready to start taking charge in 2011 and how wise was it to announce this timeframe?

How quickly can the new US troops deploy to the region?

Can President Karzai's government provide the necessary support to the mission? 

And will the new strategy work to win over the hearts and minds of the Afghan people?

General McChrystal will face these and a multitude of other serious challenges when he arrives in Kabul to put the new plan into action.

This episode of the Riz Khan show aired from Wednesday, December 9, 2009.
