The United States has now been at war in Afghanistan for over sixteen years, at a cost of over $1 trillion.There are currently fourteen thousand U.S. troops stationed there, up from 8,500 when President Trump took office, and the Army is recommending that the president authorize the deployment of an additional one thousand troops.
This past August, Donald J Trump stated that victory in Afghanistan would entail attacking them, obliterating ISIS, crushing al-Qaeda, preventing the Taliban from taking over the country, and stopping mass terror attacks against Americans before they emerge.In the first half of 2017,436 children killed in the violence.The other worthwhile instinct the president had was to just get out of Afghanistan. “Afghanistan is a complete waste” he wrote in 2012. “Time to come home.” Then Trump became president and was kidnapped by who he liked to call his generals. Most of them had served in Afghanistan, none of them are quitters, and a few of them lost buddies or loved ones there.
