The U.S. may be gearing up for a more aggressive campaign against Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

Commander of the U.S. Central Command — General Joseph Votel — said he plans to re-enforce the Afghan military with additional American advisers.

Reports indicate U.S. forces will work closely with their Middle Eastern counterparts near the front lines.

This comes as part of an effort to increase pressure on insurgents over the quiet winter months before ramping-up fighting toward the end of the season.

The war in Afghanistan is now heading into its 17th year.

    Trump actually allows our military to kill the enemy. Ask anybody that was there how the muslim terrorist Obama hogtied them with his rules of engagement.

    No one wants to be confronted with the possibility that 9/11 was planned.

    Yet, over one hundred first responders have stated they heard multiple explosions then the buildings collapsed.
    The transcripts from the firefighters communications report the same thing.

    Anyway, this has been such a colossal failure. We need to lick our wounds, tend to the veterans who are committing suicide at a rate of 22 a day.

    Apologize to the families of those who lost their lives and the hell out.

    Advisers = an increase in SOCOM presence.
    They can keep their mouth shut while performing a service……….
