A Radical Thought
- Instead of eternal war, how about signing a peace treat with the Taliban and dividing Afghanistan between the parties?
- Peace treaties have worked for thousands of years. But I am just a Crazy Blogger. What do I know?
(The Hill) - Sen. (R-Ariz.) on Thursday unveiled his long-promised strategy for Afghanistan, saying "America is adrift" in the war-torn nation as the Trump administration spins its wheels.
McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, has long threatened to force a strategy on the administration if it doesn’t come up with one to win the 16-year-old war.
“Adopting a new strategy for achieving America’s national security interests in Afghanistan is a decision of the highest importance, one that should be subjected to rigorous scrutiny and debate within our government,” he said. “But we must face facts: we are losing in Afghanistan and time is of the essence if we intend to turn the tide.”
Right now, there are about 8,400 U.S. troops in Afghanistan on a dual mission of training, advising and assisting Afghan forces in their fight against the Taliban and conducting counterterrorism missions against groups such as al Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
McCain does not specify how many troops would be necessary to "turn the tide," but he calls for an “enduring United States counterterrorism presence in Afghanistan.”
McCain says the president should ensure the Defense secretary, secretary of State and military commanders have all the resources they need, including military forces, civilian personnel, financial resources and authorities.
