US General: 5,000 More Troops Needed for Afghanistan

Gen. Nicholson now says he wants another 5,000 US and NATO troops, saying he believes the US needs that many to “break the stalemate” in the war. Nicholson has repeatedly labeled the conflict a “stalemate” in recent weeks, which appears to be an overestimation of the situation, with the Taliban continuing to gain ground against Afghan security forces.

The US has repeatedly run into this problem in Afghanistan, with the government’s forces unable to stand up to the Taliban by themselves, and NATO growing weary of continuing to prop them up. This has led to escalations and deescalation for years, constantly trying to save the Afghan government from outright defeat.

Nicholson argued that because 9/11 involved Afghanistan, a loss in the country would embolden terrorists globally.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

General Nicholson, a word, please.

As you well know, Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9/11: it is the self-perpetuating lie/narrative that the US government continues to flog as its "justification" for having invaded, and continuing to occupy this country with US and NATO troops.

Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9/11

There is, after 16 years and counting, absolutely zero military metric by which Afghanistan can be characterised as a military success.

The invasion, and occupation was all about rights to pipeline routes and the rights to that embarrassment of natural resources Afghanistan which Afghanistan possesses.

Pipeline to Afghanistan

Afghanistan's mineral wealth

And lastly, sir,I have an incredible set of concepts which would stop any terrorism against the US or any of its assets overseas, and most probably very quickly:

1. Create working alternative energy which does not leave the US dependent on fossil fuel.

2. Stop mucking about in other people's countries to expropriate resources to which the US government has no moral right.

3. Stop regime changing those countries to become western-centric.

4. Stop insisting that those resources only be sold in US-denominated currency.

YOU'RE WELCOME!!! :-)
