President Trump's Afghanistan strategy is appropriate

Last night President Trump outlined his strategy for Afghanistan and regardless of how you feel about Donald Trump the man, what he accomplished in last night speech was presidential, delivered succinctly, and the visual sent to the troops was overwhelming.

The United States cannot risk what we did in Iraq by immediately pulling out. It created a vacuum that arguably aided in the development of ISIS. We have to be careful and strategic as not to make the same mistake in Afghanistan. As the 'Art of War' reminds us, the element of surprise is a key element to winning.
