Obama has said, in a conference meeting in Washington today, that nearly 10,000 troops will remain in Afghanistan despite his promise to end this war over his watch.
It is believed that the troops will provide assistance, to the Afghan government, with fighting back the resurgent Taliban. Obama said that while Afghan forces have made progress, the security situation in the country remains fragile.
But when will the Afghan government be strong enough to keep the Taliban- or any other terrorist groups- at bay?
How long will troops have to remain in Afghanistan?
I think that many years will pass before that region of the world is in peace. Therefore, I don’t think that Obama will be able to keep his promise of ending this endless war.
