Donald Trump has three choices in Afghanistan: stalemate, failure, or sending in more troops | ABC Radio Australia

Trump's budget last week (cuts for foreign aid, cash injection for the military) makes it clear that he has been, unsurprisingly, listening to the Pentagon hawks. Not difficult to see where this is going...

President Donald Trump has vowed to end "nation-building", raising expectations of withdrawal.The alternatives? Stalemate, or more troops.Last month, Republican Senator John McCain asked America's top general in Afghanistan, John Nicholson, a simple question: "Are we winning or losing?""I believe we're in a stalemate," the commander of Operation Resolute Support replied to the chair of the Senate's Armed Services Committee.
