Trump Appoints Austin Miller to Command US Forces-Afghanistan

President Donald Trump has nominated Lt. General Austin Miller to replace General John Nicholson to command US Forces-Afghanistan, the Defense Department said in a press release.

"Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis has announced that the president has made the following nomination… Army Lt. Gen. Austin S. Miller for appointment to the grade of general, and assignment as commander, Resolute Support Mission, North Atlantic Treaty Organization; and commander, U.S. Forces-Afghanistan," the release said on Tuesday.

Earlier, the US Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said that the United States has failed to stabilize Afghanistan despite 16 years of occupation and billions invested in stability programs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This man may be a great soldier, and I have do doubt that he is, but this Trump nomination for the head of military activities... is somewhat akin to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

The sensible thing to do, would be to evacuate all US and NATO troops from the country, then negotiate with whatever government was left standing in Kabul for the oil pipeline rights, rare earth minerals development, and purchasing of opium poppies, the production of which has skyrocketed under US/NATO occupation.

Of course, such a move would be logical, which is why it has been rejected out of hand by this, and former, administrations.
