Trump on Afghanistan: ‘Our Troops Will Fight to Win’


In a speech tonight, President Trump made a strong commitment to victory in Afghanistan.

This evening, President Trump made a speech in regards to the United States’ involvement in Afghanistan. The U.S. military will be increasing it’s presence in the region over the coming months. It’s unclear at this point how many troops will be sent to Afghanistan or how long we will stay in the war-torn country. This decision comes in direct conflict with President Trump’s original stance on Afghanistan.

“My original instinct was to pull out.”

President Trump is confident that the intel he has received from his national security advisers. During the campaign, he was adamant that the war in Afghanistan was too costly to keep going. The hope is that an increased presence will lead to a final victory for the United States and our allies in the region. President Trump also showed a strong resolve to hold Pakistan’s feet to the fire. For far too long they have been a safe haven for terrorist activities.

Quote via Reuters:

“We can no longer be silent about Pakistan’s safe havens,” Trump said. “Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with our effort in Afghanistan. It has much to lose by continuing to harbor terrorists.”

Troop increase: good or bad?

Depending on who you ask, this move is either needed or a betrayal of Trump’s promises. In reality, it’s probably a bit of both. I agree with candidate Trump that the war in Afghanistan has been too long and too expensive. The benefits are minimal. I still don’t love the idea, but I’m not ready to completely condemn it.

My hope is that President Trump has taken the time to weigh opinions on both sides of this issue. If he is making this decision because it’s truly the right move then I will support it because I support my country. We know that he is surrounded with great military minds, but I am not always sure I can trust their motives. The military industrial complex is powerful, but President Trump is a good and honest man. I trust his ability to see through motive and make the right decision for our nation. If we must stay in Afghanistan for a bit longer, let’s win the fight swiftly and efficiently. Victory is a must, our great men and women in uniform deserve nothing less.
