Stacy McCain has a post up discussing President Trump’s recent decision to increase the size of the U. S. Military force in Afghanistan. Our policy in the conduct of the war has been inconsistent over three administrations, but it now appears that Trump has ordered Secretary Mattis to win the war. Assets are being recommitted to the fight.
My libertarian friends and “America First” nationalists don’t like Trump’s decision to double the force in Afghanistan, but there are no good options available in this permanent war against a permanent enemy.
Read the whole thing and hit Stacy’s tip jar.
