Afghanistan: Pentagon plans to send more occupation troops


“Across the world, America’s wars are raging, and as with every new president to take office, President Trump wanted a list of options from the Pentagon on how to proceed with these conflicts. Everywhere and always, the plans have been to escalate. But perhaps none so much as Afghanistan, where 16 years in, the US is already sending troops back into combat situations to try to slow the Taliban’s gains, and reports are that all of the Pentagon’s ‘options’ being presented include a minimum of 3,000 more troops being sent.” (05/01/17)
