The Pentagon is reportedly planning to deploy nearly 4,000 more U.S. soldiers to Afghanistan. This comes after President Trump gave the Pentagon authority last week to set troop levels there. There are currently 8,400 U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan. The U.S. war in Afghanistan is the longest war in U.S. history.
Noone knows when the US will finally disengage from the region entirely and realize that military intervention does not lead to a peaceful resolution of conflicts. It is up to us to demand our congressman and women to stop using our tax dollars to fund military operations overseas that do not make us more safe, but less.
