President Announces New Afghanistan Strategy

Recommended Posts

The White House
For Immediate Release

Washington, DC – President Kyle Fitzgerald spoke to the press to announce a new strategy for the War in Afghanistan. 

“On September 11 2001, our nation was savagely and viciously attacked by Islamic extremists. In response, we justifiably deployed the full force of the American military against terrorists in Afghanistan. For many years, our men and women in uniform have courageously battled the forces of Taliban and Al-Qaeda. Numerous heroes have been lost. While there have been moments of success, such as the death of Osama Bin Laden at the hands of SEAL Team Six, a final and lasting victory in Afghanistan has eluded our military for the last seventeen years. 

“To give you an idea of just how long this war has raged, a child born in the fall of 2001 – when we first entered Afghanistan – is now a sophomore in high school. For millions of Americans who are part of Generation Z – the group currently in high school and college – America has been at war in Afghanistan for as long as they can remember.

“The length of time we have spent in Afghanistan gives a lot of ammunition to proponents of a full-scale withdrawal. They say that if we haven’t finished the job by now, when will we ever finish? How much longer do our men and women in uniform need to be there? They say that the large sum of money we spend in Afghanistan – nearly $50 billion a year – could be much better spent right here at home. 

“Others, however, see things differently. They want to stay in Afghanistan and finish the job. They’re afraid that if we leave Afghanistan now, it’ll just be like when Obama left Iraq and ISIS took our place. They’re concerned that the seventeen years of sacrifice will have all been in vain if that happens. 

“The reality of the situation is that both sides are right. We have been in Afghanistan way too long, our men and women in uniform deserve to come home and the money we spend over there should be brought back along with them. But we need to win the war first. We cannot allow the Taliban to recover or worse allow another ISIS to take their place. 

“Fortunately, we can have it both ways. We can bring our troops home, but still win the war. Our administration has decided on a plan that will replace the 15,000 American military personnel currently stationed in Afghanistan with a smaller and more specialized force of 6,000 private military contractors supported by 2,000 active-duty U.S. Special Forces. This task force will be under the command of a U.S. Special Envoy who will report directly to me, and I have appointed Erik Prince to fill this role. Erik is a former U.S. Navy SEAL and is considered one of the world’s top military minds. Using funds authorized by Congress through the Infrastructure Jobs and National Security Act, Secretary of Defense Carlos Solivar has negotiated a contract with Academi – the world’s foremost private security firm – to execute this plan through 2022 at roughly 10% of the price we are currently spending. By the end of the year, our troops currently stationed in Afghanistan will be back home and fully replaced with the new task force. 

“The decision to shift our strategy away from a large traditional military deployment to a much smaller footprint of private contractors is in no way a reflection of our men and women in uniform and their leadership. To the contrary, after seventeen years our troops deserve nothing less than to come back home. Afghanistan has always been a tough nut to crack. The British and the Soviets couldn’t figure it out. Unfortunately, there’s too much at stake to give up now and after seventeen years it’s time to try something bold and new.”
