The Future Of U.S. Involvement In Afghanistan
The war in Afghanistan is known by several other names: America’s longest war, the forever war and the endless war, to name a few.
Two decades after its start, U.S. troops remain in the country despite promises from both the Obama and Trump administrations that the end was in sight.
Around 3,500 U.S. troops remain in a war that has killed more than 100,000 Afghans and 2,300 Americans.
What does the future of Afghanistan look like? And what role, if any, will the U.S. play?
