Trump Sets U.S. Strategy for Afghan War

Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Mark Landler – The New York Times:

The president heaped contempt on his predecessor’s strategy, promising that he would avoid President Barack Obama’s mistakes.

But in substance, Mr. Trump’s strategy was not all that different from Mr. Obama’s, relying on a mix of conventional military force and diplomatic pressure on Pakistan. One administration official conceded that there was to be no major change in the mix of American forces operating in Afghanistan, and that the priorities would remain training Afghan forces and conducting counterterrorism operations.

Donald Trump is going to succeed where every invading commander since Alexander the Great has failed. Uh huh.

The turnip truck overturned down the road a piece. Might be a few suckers lying around, ripe for bridge-buying.
