Deployment of Nearly 4000 Troops to Afghanistan

The war in Afghanistan is a colossal atrocity. U.S. wars in the middle east have cost trillions of dollars, and troops should therefore be entirely withdrawn from Afghanistan, not deployed more.

The Pentagon is reportedly planning to deploy nearly 4,000 more U.S. soldiers to Afghanistan. This comes after President Trump gave the Pentagon authority last week to set troop levels there. There are currently 8,400 U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan. The U.S. war in Afghanistan is the longest war in U.S. history.
