Afghan War Still  a Stalemate

Afghan War Still a Stalemate

The top US military commander in Afghanistan said the war there is “still in a stalemate,” but on an upward trajectory. “We are still in a stalemate,” Gen. John Nicholson said in an interview airing on “NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt” Friday. “We are only 90 days into this new policy, but with the US forces that will be arriving, with the new authority that we have been given, put the pressure on external enablers, with the fact that we are condition based and not time based, we’ve set all the conditions to win,” CBS reported. In late August, US President Donald Trump delivered a major speech on America’s longest war that offered few specific adjustments in US strategy, and although that speech offered few specific details, it was soon followed by an increase of 3,000 troops. That increase brought the troop level to roughly 14,000.
