Western military alliance is pondering upon the deployment of a bigger number of its troops in Afghanistan to strenghten the government army, which is afflicted by some heavy blows from the terrorist group either relatively new (ISIS) and older (Taliban). They are harshly testing the sway order that the american s substuncial funds for the recostrution and the government struggle have ensured at 59.7 percent of the country’s 407 districts, up from 57.2 percent in mid-November of last year. For Afganistan that remains in the grip of a deadly war, John Nicholson, the U.S. general who commands NATO forces in Afghanistan, told the U.S. Congress in February is needed in the ‘shortfall of a few thousand’ troops to meet requirements in the country. Since NATO’s combat mission formally ended in 2014, Taliban attacks have intensified, often overwhelming the Afghan military. NATO troops are in Afghanistan as part of the alliance’s Resolute Support mission to train, assist, and advise local forces.
