So trump is following in the footsteps of Bush and Obama, and giving into the "military industrial complex." He could have ended the longest war in history, but instead is sending more troops. The excuse is that "a hasty exit will create a vacuum" I get that, but we've been there for 16 years.. How is leaving being hasty? We can expect more of the same now that bannon is gone. Congrats trump, you have officially become the 5th term of Bush and Obama. The whole point was to train Afghani troops so they can defend themselves. If they can't defend themselves after 16 years, then they never will. Good news for trump is that McCain and Lindsey Graham will swoon over him for a few days.
