    Methinks if Trump wants to reverse the trend and stop the Taliban from winning then 4000 additional troops, which is what, a combat brigade, will not be enough. 40.000 seems more likely.

    It will also have the advantage of drawing in so much American military strength that it will seriously reduce US ability to cause problems elsewhere. In which case we are all better off.

      I suggest that you go to fight Talibans in Afghanistan with your sons.

        We do. The Netherlands fought there for several years and even now maintains a military training mission there in Kunduz province.

          Many countries maintain a military training mission there since the US is really bad at it.
