‘Fighting season’: Pentagon to send ‘1,000 new troops & drones’ to Afghanistan

Recommended Posts

The Pentagon intends to deploy an estimated 1,000 new combat advisers to Afghanistan as part of the Trump administration’s planned troop surge, according to reports.

As early as February, members of an Army security-force assistance brigade from Fort Benning, Georgia, will be sent to work as combat advisers to Afghan National Security Forces. Their deployment will bring the number of American personnel in the country to about 14,000.

US military officials told the Wall Street Journal the Pentagon hopes to dramatically increase the American military presence in Afghanistan in time for spring, when the “fighting season” begins.
With operations against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) winding down in Syria and Iraq, the US military also plans to send more helicopters, ground vehicles, artillery and other equipment to Afghanistan.

Clearly trump wants, war, conflict and he's aggressive. Everything I've seen from his this far signifies that he is a user of force and a creator of chaos. Look at the rocket strike he ordered.... So him pulling out would go against what the goal is :D

If he wants war so badly, why hasn't he pressed "the big red button" yet?  What's stopping him?  Obama showed us that the office of President is impervious to impeachment and/or criminal charges and is not under Congressional control, so where's this war he wants so badly?  Time's a wastin'.  Unless, perhaps, he's  just an unmotivated, lazy, slacking warmonger?

So the possibility is that he's ceded foreign policy to the insane and evil neocons aka Deep State in return for wins on the domestic front.

We'll know whether or not that holds water when the indictments start to come in. Because then he doesn't have to pretend he likes Israel anymore.

Only if you think modern-day Israel is the Judaic race from the Bible, which clearly it isn't.

The US could easily detach itself from the neocon Khazarian swine and at the same time guarantee modern-day Israel is protected from invasion by its neighbours and at the same time cease and desist undermining all the ME nations it currently attacks and at the same time withdraw its support for Saudi Arabia and at the same expose through declassifying all its intelligence, all of the secret alliances between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and all of the Israeli operations its conducted over the years to make the ME the hellhole it is.

It could easily do that, and if Trump really is a white hat, he may well take that path. I don't hold high expectations, but he could do that.
