    What should NATO do in Afghanistan? Disappear -- Der Spiegel

    November 8, 2017 - Fort Russ News -, translated from German by Tom Winter

    Translator note: Part of our international net is that Die Lage [The Situation] comes in our email every morning from Der Spiegel. The Lage consists of a very few -- a select few -- short items in one paragraph. Today's is remarkable:
    "As this seems to be a day of the bad mood, one more look at the NATO meeting that begins today: Among other things, the troops in Afghanistan are to be increased from 13,000 to 16,000 men. What is that supposed to accomplish? One less reversal? What a terrible zig-zag: from the increase to the announced reduction to the recent increase. If anything can be achieved in Afghanistan, then only with a huge commitment. Since NATO is not ready for that, it should acknowledge defeat and disappear from Afghanistan."
