Nicholson asked for more troops.  According to the MSM, Trump considered relieving him.  Mattis stated he will ask for troop numbers after Trump has decided on a strategy.

There's no way that the generals would support a limited force of contractors. It would be humiliating for them.

Good point, but it's ultimately not their call.  It will be interesting to see how influential the top brass will be on Trump's decision.

Or let  warriors be warriors. Kick there asses and get it over with. Problem solved. None of this pampering shit.

Whatever the decision, it will be controversial and the media will hammer it.

Takes balls for Trump to get up there and announce the who, what, where, when, and why. Wouldn't see Obama doing that shit. Trump wanting to make the decision public himself is a sign of a leader.

The government has some modicum of control over 60% of the country  and in many places it's not saying much.


  What the US needs to do is to do something radical: erase the Durand line. Recognize that Pashtunistan can not share the territory of Afghanistan.

Afgans led successful wars of attrition for centuries. A-stan is where great powers go to bankrupt themselves.

Both what I expect and what I hope for. Despite the current trend for the right to bitch about bullshit wars, the enemy we face has made it obvious that they do not intend to leave us in peace. The only viable means for defeating Islam is to get tougher, not softer.

Replacing troops with contractors actually isn't a bad idea IMO. Its an unwinnable war anyways, AFG needs their fucking hands held to get anything done at all, send in contractors and stockpile our troops for WW3.

According to Fox Trump just signed off on sending 4k troops.

I hope full withdrawal.

After 16 years, they need to take care of themselves.  

No more blood and treasure.

I just wanted all you super jerks who hate me distracted as the 82nd Airborne parachutes down around strategic monuments of Civil War Generals, who were super and had very very uge beards. Throw bottles of pee at them and see what happens"

what have we got to show for our efforts in Afghanistan so far?
put the troops on the Mexican border and in South Korea

After all these years, we've conclusively proved that the US military and the government that controls them are incapable of implementing a favorable solution. Therefore, we need to un-ass the region ASAP.

I predict that all of the skin heads, 88ers, etc will be rounded up and sent to get rid of the Afghan bad guys.
