Counterterrorism Forces Should Not Leave Afghanistan The top US general has reportedly said Wednesday that counterterrorism forces should be maintained in Afghanistan until there is no insurgency left in the country.
The United States will need to keep counterterrorism forces in Afghanistan until there is no insurgency left in the country, the top U.S. general said, suggesting a far longer military presence even after more than 17 years of war.

“I think we will need to maintain a counterterrorism presence as long as an insurgency continues in Afghanistan,” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford said during a congressional hearing, Reuters reported.
This comes as the United States is currently in talks with the Taliban delegation in Doha.
