Forever war: tenth of never edition

No surprises here. Too many stake holders have too much money at stake, plus too many military officers need to get their ticket punched.
Mr. Obama has pledged to withdraw all but about 1,000 troops by the time he leaves office at the beginning of 2017. Current plans call for the 10,000 troops now in the country to be reduced by half in the months ahead.
But Mr. Ghani is hoping to keep those troops in his country as long as possible.
Well, duh. Of course he wants US troops to stay---they drive the money train enriching government leaders, plus what puppet president doesn't want his own personal army?
