I'm watching President Trump's speech on Afghanistan. Is he kidding? What is really America's objective in this longest war in our history?
In the campaign, I thought Trump wanted to withdraw from Afghanistan. What has changed?
Trump wants "Victory" in Afghanistan. Exactly what does that mean? And can we ever achieve "Victory" just by spending billions more and sacrificing more precious American lives. I think not!
We need to get out of Afghanistan ASAP, and repudiate the Trump/Pentagon plan for extending this military/foreign policy disaster. Generals want to go to war, but they are often unable to discern when military solutions will not work. Afghanistan is one of those times when our military is impotent and of little use.
