Top US commander: Trump’s Afghanistan plan a game changer

ㅤPictured: Army Gen. John Nicholson

ㅤ”Under new authorities granted by Trump, Nicholson has been able to triple the number of bombs dropped on Taliban, al Qaeda, and Islamic State targets: 3,554 in the first 10 months of this year, compared to 1,337 in all of 2016, according to figures released by the U.S. Air Forces Central Command.
ㅤThat has allowed Nicholson to go after the Taliban’s primary source of funding, which is its heroin traffic from Afghanistan’s bumper crop of opium poppies.”
