David Barno said: “When I look around the world I see thousands of U.S. troops still serving in Germany, Japan, and South Korea, all part of a pattern of the United States consolidating its strategic gains by keeping troops on the ground as a stabilizing force for many decades. I just think it is short-sighted not to similarly sustain our strategic investment in Afghanistan at the historically low cost of a few thousand troops, backed by our NATO allies,” External link
