‘US Afghan mission destined to fail’

Press TV

U.S. President Barack Obama has reportedly no intention to announce  the number of troops remaining in Afghanistan beyond the 2014 deadline because  he has an “illusion” that he will win the war in country, says  a columnist from Veterans Today.

“Most  Americans are living under this illusion that somehow we are going to make  things better in Afghanistan, which will never be the case … this mission is destined to fail”, Dean Henderson, who is also the author  of “Big Oil and Their Bankers” and “Stickin’ it to the Matrix,” told  Press TV’s U.S.  Desk on  Sunday.

Some American officials suggest that the U.S. should keep between  8,000 and 12,000 troops in Afghanistan after 2014.

“It  doesn’t matter how many troops we leave there.  It’s not going to help the situation. The sooner we get out  of Afghanistan the better for the interest of both the Afghan people and the  United States”, Henderson said.

It is also likely that the U.S. president has no plan to do in  Afghanistan after the deadline, he added.

Almost 66,000 American soldiers are now stationed in Afghanistan.  President Obama has ordered about 34,000 home by early 2014 as part of his plan  to hand over security control to domestic security forces.

The Afghan war has become the longest-running war in the U.S.  history.
