Back Again: US Marines May Return to Afghanistan to Advise Ground Forces

The US Marine Corps may send troops back to Afghanistan as advisers, two years after leaving the country as combatants. 2nd Marine Division Commander Maj. Gen. John Love said recently that a group from his unit would deploy to Afghanistan in the spring.

During a Marine Corps Association and Foundation awards event in November 2016, Love remarked, "There is change in the air…There is a new mission we've picked up in the Marine Corps. We are going to repurpose the infantry regiments against a new mission back in some familiar territory in Afghanistan, a province we've been to before and a location we've been to before." © AFP 2016/ NASIR WAQIF US Ignores Afghanistan Sending Foreign Donors' Money to Abusive Militia Leaders The new mission he’s referring to entails Marines advising police forces and the Afghan National Security Forces. Previously Marines had served in the southwest Taliban stronghold of Helmand, while a team of advisers also worked in Lashkar Gah, Helmand’s capital.

The US government and NATO have been occupying Afghanistan for over 15 years.

There is still no military metric by which the US, or NATO military can call that occupation "successful",in light of the fact that the Taliban and ISIS are having some great successes in various areas of the country.

In June 2016, the Taliban held more territory in Afghanistan than any other time after 2001

But here is the real reason why the Marines are coming back to Afghanistan as "advisors":

No, these images are not photoshopped; they are real.

And that opium poppy trade, from which cheap, very pure heroin is fabricated, has soared, during the US and NATO occupation of Afghanistan.
