The Trump administration is urging American-backed Afghan troops to retreat from sparsely populated areas of the country, officials said, all but ensuring the Taliban will remain in control of vast stretches of the country. The approach is outlined in a previously undisclosed part of the war strategy that President Trump announced last year, according to three officials who described the documents to The New York Times on the condition of anonymity.

...the American-installed government in Afghanistan remains unable to lead and protect the country's sprawling rural population.

Who could have seen that coming? Should have left right after tossing bin Laden overboard.

Well, Liberals get their way. America can't stay in a country that doesn't want us and enforce our rule. It's a shame so many people will suffer but that's just what one party in our country wants. But on the good side, we will save lots of military money!
