After 16 Years: Situation Deteriorating

Afghan soldiers are suffering what Pentagon auditors call “shockingly high” battlefield casualties, and prospects are narrowing for a negotiated peace settlement with the Taliban.

Need. More. Troops.

16 years of meat grinding. And they want more? And obviously, the “Afghan soldiers” have no motivation. Pack up, and go home. But, but… just like Vietnam, we’re winning all the battles! Yeah, but did you conquer it?
