1,000 more U.S. troops could be headed to Afghanistan this spring, to supplement 14,000 already in the country

Because the CIA's poppy fields and opium routes aren't going to protect themselves: 1,000 more U.S. troops could be headed to Afghanistan this spring, to supplement 14,000 already in the country | 21 Jan 2018 | The U.S. Army is readying plans that could increase the total force in Afghanistan by as many as 1,000 U.S. troops this spring beyond the 14,000 already in the country, senior military officials said. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has not signed off on the proposals for the new forces, which are part of a broader strategy to bolster Afghan forces so that they can battle the Taliban during the upcoming fighting season. [?!] The Obama administration, as part of its [phony] plan to wind down the Afghanistan war in 2015, limited advisers to higher headquarters far from the fighting. The new strategy that President Trump approved in August would push U.S. advisory teams to the battalion level, far closer to the front lines.
