Trump’s “New” Strategy In Afghanistan Is Doomed To Fail

US should have learned that the Taliban will not be defeated.
By Dr. Alon Ben-Meir
President Trump’s new strategy that would presumably win the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan is doomed to fail, just like Bush’s and Obama’s before him. At best, the reported dispatch of an additional 4,000 American troops as recommended by his security chiefs will prevent the total collapse of Afghanistan and thwart the Taliban from winning. Given the complex nature of the conflict, however, the status quo will not change in any significant way.
