While US President Donald Trump claims he seeks to reduce the US presence in Afghanistan, the reality is that peace talks with the Taliban have stalled out and if the US found itself in a war with nearby Iran, its Afghan bases would be useful, a leading peace activist told Sputnik.
A new report released Tuesday by the United Nations reveals that the war in Afghanistan is still in full force, with 2,366 civilians killed and another 2,446 wounded in the country so far in just the first half of this year.
