Another 4,000 Americans to be sent into the Afghanistan meat grinder!
Numerous news outlets are now reporting that President Trump has authorized Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis to send 4,000 more American soldiers to Afghanistan, admitting that many of these will serve in direct combat roles.
Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's coverage (admittedly potentially biased) can be found here.
Russia Today (RT)'s coverage can be found here.
Please allow me to make a very simple statement: I AM PISSED OFF ABOUT THIS! The Afghan War will never end unless and until all foreign forces, all foreign governments, leave that war-torn country and allow its people to work out how they will live, and by what rules, by themselves.
I am shocked, saddened, and profoundly disappointed and disillusioned. And depressed about this.
When will we ever learn?
