PULLING THE PLUG ON AFGHANISTAN

Recent reports coming out of Washington suggest that the proposal by US National Security Adviser (NSA) Mr. MacMaster for a moderate rise in the number of US troops or their private security company substitutes has been rejected by President Trump. If this is true it would at least conform with Trump’s declared goal to put ‘America first’ and use the money that the US has kept spending in Afghanistan for the last more than 15 years to not only finance their own troops and civilian personal but also to pull the plug on financing an unpopular Afghan government. A so-called ‘moderate’ rise in the number of US troops would have been unlikely to bring any favourable change in any case: If the huge troop rise under the previous government did not bring the end of the Talibaan insurgency, several thousand more troops wouldn’t be able to achieve that either.
