President Trump does not know enough about what is going on in Afghanistan to make a decision which will result in the deaths of more American Soldiers and Afghan Civilians.
He has been wrongly advised. We cannot beat the Taliban. Fighting the Taliban will not control the expansion of terrorism. Nor will it enable Pakistan to stop rival Taliban Groups seek their own Agenda’s. The Taliban now have a Controlling Organization – they will be needed as Allies if Terrorism is to be controlled. They are already acting as a de-facto Government and have established communications with several Governments.
The Taliban control over 40 per cent of Afghanistan. How are an extra 4000 U.S troops going to be able to counter their expansion and ‘kill terrorists’.
America’s terror attacks on its home soil have all been by American Citizens or from Nationals who have been living in America for some time.
China is actively co-operating with the Taliban and so too is Russia. The Taliban are acting as Security in Afghanistan for China’s resources investments.
Why is it that more Americans have to die so that China and Russia can supply the markets that America is ensuring do not suffer terrorist attacks?
America you have lost nearly 3000 good men. How many more?
The Taliban do not want ISIS in control of any part of Afghanistan so the U.S risks the possibility of the Taliban and ISIS working together against the U.S supported by Russia.
Putin is not only getting a free Border Guard but he also get to play his strategic power games against the U.S with the Taliban.
Everybody has their hands in the Till in Afghanistan. Most of the till is American money. Only this week the European Union poured another $100 million into Afghanistan. Where has all the money gone?
President Trump should have pulled out every U.S soldier and said to Russia and China – all yours. They would soon be wanting to work with America once they knew the U.S were leaving
Stop being everybody’s Policeman America – that is what the U.N should be for.
The Taliban are the most experienced fighters in the World. They have been fighting non-stop since 1979 when the Russians invaded Afghanistan. How many of the 4000 U.S troops going to Afghanistan have been fighting since 1979?
Nobody is going to defeat the Taliban and they have the high ground. They own the mountains. They also are the heart and soul of their people.
President Trump I am one of your supporters. But on Afghanistan you are wrong. The Taliban say they want Peace. They say they have had enough of the war. They too do not want terrorism. You should be talking to them not further engaging them in battle.
