    BUNK.

    Trump is also withdrawing from Iraq and even from places like Saudi Arabia.

    And ending a war and leaving the war zone is a good thing even if the troops did go to a non-war zone instead of coming home.

    So says the guy with no insight, no proof and no clue. I don't speak on this ignorantly. There are dozens of troop deployments slated for TY21. To all sorts of regions...Jordan, Kuwait, Afghanistan, to replace the security details in and around Baghdad, to replace the troops in Yemen.
    You are just angry that you can't see it because your heads so far up Trumps ass.

    and all you got is "Bunk". GTFOH.

    LOL

    Of course there are scheduled deployments, it's called troop rotation.
    Trump is not bringing all of the troops home at once but I have repeatedly posted the proof that Trump is withdrawing thousands of troops from many countries.

    All you have is bunk.

    You can't be this obtuse.

    More are coming home than are going out, Trump is leaving Afghanistan completely and Iraq completely but not all at once, he is also decreasing the number of troops in other places.

    But they don't leave units overseas permanently so they constantly send out new units to replace old units that are coming home.

    OP, instead of indulging in personal attacks and calling others names, care to answer a simple question:

    Is it true that there are 8,000-10,000 more troops in mideast today than there were when GOPA funded leader took charge of White House?



    If so, isn't it time to stop 'So it begins/So it flip-flops again' type vague and misleading headlines & "very soon xyz would happen" promises and start citing concrete numbers?

    There will be plenty of time to celeberate after your predictions have come true, I hope they do.

    You and the other trolls always present regular troop rotation as "additional troops sent to the war zone" even when overall numbers are dropping.

    You have no credibility.

    Senior Afghan peace official Abdullah Abdullah arrived in Pakistan on Monday for meetings in a country seen as vital to the success of Afghan talks aimed at ending decades of war.

    During his three-day visit to Islamabad, Abdullah, a former foreign minister and chairman of Afghanistan's High Council for National Reconciliation, will meet Prime Minister Imran Khan as well as Pakistan's foreign minister.

    "Pakistan fully supports all efforts for peace," its foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement.

    "The visit of Dr Abdullah Abdullah will contribute to further strengthening amity, brotherhood and close cooperation."

    The United States has acknowledged Pakistan's help in fostering Afghan peace efforts including in encouraging the Taliban to negotiate.

    The U.S. special representative for Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, said last week the United States and its allies were looking at an agreement between Afghanistan and Pakistan so that neither side's territory would be used to attack the other.

    The Afghan government and Taliban negotiators are nearing a compromise on a key sticking point that has stalled peace talks in Doha, a senior Afghan official said Wednesday.

    The Taliban, who are Sunni hardliners, had insisted on strict adherence to the Hanafi school of Sunni Islamic jurisprudence, but government negotiators worried this could be used to discriminate against the predominantly Shi'ite Hazara community and other religious minorities.

    Abdullah Abdullah, chairman of Afghanistan's High Council for National Reconciliation that is overseeing Kabul's peace push, said in an interview with AFP that after several small-group meetings in Doha, the issue had been resolved "to a large extent".

    Both sides have provisionally agreed "to recognise the principal issue of Hanafi's role without any discrimination to Shia communities or minorities, so … the compromise is around that," Abdullah said.

    Resolution of the issue means one less obstacle as negotiators try to draw up an agenda for talks, which could take years to complete.

    Another stumbling block has emerged: the extent to which the Taliban recognise the legitimacy of the Kabul government under a future deal.

    The insurgents have always insisted President Ashraf Ghani's government is a US-enabled "puppet" regime. In the deal the Taliban cut with Washington in February, they did not have to recognise Kabul.

    Similarly, the Taliban now want any future peace deal to exclude overt references to the government and instead to frame the agreement as some sort of "intra-Afghan" accord.

    Without providing details, Abdullah said the two sides appeared to have made progress on the issue.

    He said after a slow start, the negotiating teams were now "getting along quite well and this latest impasse, hopefully we will overcome it soon."

    The U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan said on Thursday he had struck an agreement with the insurgent Taliban to "re-set" their commitments under a troop withdrawal deal and reduce the number of casualties in the country, which has seen heavy fighting in southern Helmand province.

    This week, the Taliban launched a major offensive in Helmand, attempting to take the provincial capital and ensuing fighting had displaced thousands of civilians.

    U.S. envoy Zalmay Khalilzad said on Twitter that he and General Scott Miller, the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, had held several meetings with the Taliban.

    "We agreed to re-set actions by strictly adhering to implementation of all elements of the U.S.-Taliban Agreement and all commitments made," he said. "At present too many Afghans are dying. With the re-set, we expect that number to drop significantly."

    In a sign that negotiations were continuing, a Taliban spokesman and an Afghan government negotiator said on Wednesday some of their negotiators had met after a pause to discuss disputed issues and "present solutions".
