US decision to increase the number of troops as part of the train, advise and assist mission in Afghanistan.

“If US failed to win war with a hundred thousand troops, it will not win with a few hundred. Deployment of 700 SOF is propaganda effort because US and allies are compelled to periodically reinvigorate spirits of their morale lacking troops.”

This comes as the US military officials have said the US military is planning to send hundreds of new troops to advise and assist the Afghan security forces during the counter-terrorism operations.

The officials have also added that the new troops to be deployed will act similar as the US special forces to advise and assist the Afghan security forces in the frontline.

Reports regarding the deployment of new troops emerge as the US President Donald Trump unveiled his administration’s new strategy regarding Afghanistan and South Asia late in August last year.

President Trump vowed to continue the US mission in Afghanistan besides reaffirming the continued support of Washington to the Afghan government and the Afghan national defense and security forces.

The new strategy, according to the US officials, will be implemented based on the conditions in a bid to force the Taliban group to opt reconciliation.
