It was another bloody day in Afghanistan, where a suicide car bomb outside the Indian Embassy in Kabul killed 17 people.    ABC News also learned today that General Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, has put three three options on on the president's desk. The first, described  as "high risk," involves keeping troop levels where they are. The second, which General McChrystal reportedly recommends, involves 40,000 additional troops being deployed to Afghanistan. The third involves a far greater increase in troop levels.  President Obama is scheduled to have more meetings on war strategy at the White House tomorrow. So tonight, we ask: Which of the three options do you think the president should pursue? Tell us what you think. You can follow "Nightline" anytime on Twitter:
