US general wants thousands more troops to break Afghan stalemate

The top US commander in Afghanistan said on Thursday he needs several thousand more international troops in order to break a stalemate in a war with Taliban insurgents, signaling the matter may soon be put before President Donald Trump.

I have adequate resourcing in my counterterrorism mission. In my train, advise and assist mission, however, we have a shortfall of a few thousand,” Army General John Nicholson, who leads US and international forces in Afghanistan, told the Senate Armed Services Committee.
