US preparing to withdraw thousands of troops from Afghanistan as part of proposed Taliban deal
By Vandana Rambaran, 1 Aug 2019
The Pentagon is preparing to withdraw thousands of troops from Afghanistan as part of a proposed peace deal with the Taliban, U.S. officials told Fox News Thursday.
One official warned the withdrawal would be subject to the completion of any agreement. So far, no such deal has been finalized.
“While RS [Resolute Support] or DOD [The Department of Defense] can speak with more authority on this issue, we have not adjusted our troop levels in Afghanistan to reflect our discussions with either the Afghan government or the Taliban," a State Department official told Fox News. "The presence of U.S. forces has long been conditions-based. Adjustments over the years have been conditions-based. And any future reductions or withdrawal of forces will also be conditions-based.”
Trump Reviews Controversial US-Taliban Peace Deal Which Critics Call A "Betrayal"
by Tyler Durden, Sat, 08/17/2019 - 22:15
Critics are calling a Trump administration plan for a rapid US force draw down in Afghanistan which involves striking a peace deal with the Taliban a "betrayal".
But administration officials have countered that this is the cost of bringing the some 14,000 US troops in Afghanistan home. Trump "has been pretty clear that he wants to bring the troops home" according to senior officials privy to ongoing negotiations.
The chief controversy behind the US-Taliban peace talks is that any deal will likely rely on the Taliban holding to counterterrorism guarantees, or that it won't attack US coalition forces; however, there's reportedly little in the impending deal which holds the Taliban to guarantees it won't attack Afghan civilians or the national army.
Since he is in a surrendering mood, maybe Trump should start the formal surrender to the Cartels... just sayin.
Mexican Officials Downplay Los Zetas Chasing Border State Cops Out of Cartel’s Territory
Breitbart Texas, 17 Aug 2019
MONTERREY, Nuevo Leon – A group of Los Zetas gunmen riding in armored trucks while carrying .50 caliber rifles, machine guns, and explosives chased a squad of Nuevo Leon police officers out of the cartel’s territory. The police briefly entered the border city of Nuevo Laredo in Tamaulipas. State officials are trying to downplay the attack claiming that Los Zetas did not use grenade launchers or RGP’s, despite multiple law enforcement sources confirming the use of explosive devices.
The clash took place early Friday morning along the highway that connects Nuevo Laredo with the Monterrey Metropolitan area. A group of police officers from Nuevo Leon’s Fuerza Civil had been patrolling the highway. When they reached the state line between Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas, they briefly crossed north to make a U-turn, Nuevo Leon’s Public Security Secretary Aldo Fasci said during a press conference.
