Could the withdrawal of US troops make the Afghan war worse?
President Donald Trump’s shocking announcement that he was first withdrawing troops from Syria, and then Afghanistan, has drawn almost compete for outrage from the mainstream media. US Defense Secretary, James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis more or less resigned in protest. The Guardian called Mattis’s resignation a “bad day for America”, describing him as a “voice of reason” in the White House. This is, of course, the same military general who once exclaimed that it is “a hell of a lot of fun to shoot some people,” referring specifically to the Afghans. The proposed withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan has individually been confirmed by a US official to the Military Times, with no dead timeline in place. Altogether, some 7,000 US troops will be brought home, cutting the US military role in Afghanistan approximately by half. In other words, despite the media’s brazen headlines, thousands of US military personnel will remain inside the country.
