After 15 years, much bloodshed and hundreds of billions of dollars spent, the US should re-escalate its troop level in Afghanistan, a top US military commander says, to properly train Afghan troops amid ongoing advances of insurgent fighters.

Calling the situation in Afghanistan a “stalemate,” Army General John Nicholson told the US Senate Armed Services Committee that while he has enough troops for counterrterrorism operations against the likes of the Taliban, Al-Qaeda and Islamic State fighters, he would like several thousand more in order to boost capabilities of Afghan security forces. Nicholson said any troop injections could come from the US military or NATO nations.

“I have adequate resources in my counterterrorism mission,” Nicholson said Thursday, according to reports. “In my train, advise and assist mission, however, we have a shortfall of a few thousand. This is in the NATO train, advise and assist mission, so it can come…

    DISGUSTING, MORE BLOOD TO BE SPILLED, AND MORE LIVES LOST, FOR A WAR THAT CAN NOT BE WON. RUSSIA HAS ALSO TRIED THIS, AND NEVER DID HAVE SUCCESS. THEY MUST THINK THAT THIS BLOOD IS THEIR PROPERTY.

    Oh, and why do they want this?

      THE REASON THAT THEY WANT THIS IS, BECAUSE THEY ARE VAMPIRES AND WANT TO REDUCE THE POPULATION. JUST TO MAKE MORE MOTHER, FATHERS, WIVES, ETC…CRY AT LOOSING A LOVED ONE. THEY THINK THEY CAN SPILL BLOOD WHENEVER THEY WANT TO, WITH OR WITHOUT ANY REASONABLE CAUSE.

  3. Sending in more troops has nothing whatsoever to do with aiding Afghan troops and has everything to do with opium production. Opium production has been soaring since the U.S. has been occupying Afghanistan and sending that opium over here and straight into the mouths and arms of Americans and people, worldwide. Opium is big business especially for the government and the banking cartels. The troops are doing nothing more than babysitting those poppy plants. The ‘troops’ will never leave Afghanistan because of the opium.

    When the CDC pretends to get its panties in a bunch over the shocking statistics of opioid abuse, it is just that, pretense. They know why these people are getting high and where the product is coming from but they have to pretend to give a shit about all the people who are overdosing on that mess because it cannot be avoided any more since so many people even in rural areas are succumbing to the addiction of opioids in some form or another.

  4. Good links, futuret. Thanks for sharing. I think you’re absolutely right: the ruling elite places absolutely no value on human life.

      I AM NOT A BLOGGER, ONLY A READER, I SHALL NOT BE SILENT, WHEN THE TRUTH NEEDS TO BE SPOKEN. WE NEED TO HELP EACH OTHER, AS WE ONLY GET LIES FROM EVERYONE ELSE. AS SOON AS I START WORKING FULL TIME, I MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SHARE AS MUCH, BUT I WILL STILL SHARE. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH OF THIS BLANKET OF EVIL, LET US PULL THE SHEETS AND COVERS OF THE BEDS, AND SEE WHAT THE MATTRESS REALLY LOOKS LIKE.
