Another Afghan District Falls as Trump Prepares to Roll Out War Plan

But the Taliban now control or dominate 48 of the country’s roughly 400 administrative areas, the most they have held since being ousted from power in 2001, based on data provided by the United States military to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction. The inspector general’s last quarterly report to Congress listed 45 such districts, based on data through the end of June, and the Taliban have made a net gain of three districts since then.Among the most recent to fall was Jani Khel, in Paktia Province close to the eastern border with Pakistan, which the insurgents took on Aug. 10. That district has changed hands at least three times since 2016 and twice just this month, underlining its importance to both sides as a transit area for the Haqqani network, a powerful Taliban faction, to and from its Pakistani sanctuaries. Government officials claim that neither side really controls the district, where fighting continues.On Aug. 13, the Taliban took the center of Ghormach District in Faryab Province in the north, although the Afghan National Army retains control of a base in the district, which is under Taliban siege and being resupplied by helicopter. “If reinforcements don’t reach them, the situation will get badly worse,” said the district governor, Abdullah Waqif, who estimated that as many as 500 Afghan soldiers were at the base.GraphicThe Taliban Still Control Large Parts of Afghanistan and ISIS Has Established a FootholdAfghanistan continues to struggle to maintain security in the face of the Taliban insurgency and a growing Islamic State presence.OPEN GraphicOn Monday, a government spokesmen said the soldiers were still trapped there, but that heavy Afghan airstrikes had killed 80 insurgents and destroyed a dozen of their motorcycles.On Aug. 6, what was asserted to be a combined force of Taliban and Islamic State militants overran the strategic valley of Mirza Olang in Sar-e-pul Province in the north.

Afghan Forces Are Praised, Despite Still Relying Heavily on U.S. Help

The country’s current number of 21,000 special operations troops, while set to grow soon, account for only 7 percent of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces. But they do from 70 percent to 80 percent of the actual fighting.The bulk of the Afghan military and police forces are still well below the readiness and ability levels that American and NATO war planners hoped they would have reached when they began training the country’s security forces in 2002.As President Trump prepares to announce his Afghanistan strategy, American and Afghan military officials appear to believe the plan will resemble what the Pentagon would like to see: authorization of 3,900 more American troops who would be used to continue to help train, advise and assist the hugely challenged Afghan security forces.That number, American and NATO officials said, would likely be supplemented by a few hundred additional advisers and trainers from NATO and other countries that have contributed to the American-led war effort here.If Mr. Trump does not grant the Pentagon’s request for a more robust American troop level, there is concern that the Afghan forces may not be able to even maintain the current stalemate, causing the country’s security situation to backslide further, and that Kabul, the capital, could come under more high-visibility attacks.Even if the extra numbers do come through, military officials acknowledged that Afghanistan’s security forces were nowhere close to being able to defend the country on their own or to keep it from returning to its former status as a launching pad for terrorist attacks abroad.A resurgent Taliban, which by American estimates controls more than 40 percent of the population centers of Helmand Province in the south, continues to bedevil the beleaguered Afghan security forces, while the Islamic State has taken root in Nangarhar Province in the east.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Large-scale war games are set to begin on Monday. The joint exercises conducted twice a year by U.S. and South Korean troops are intended as preparation for a possible attack by North Korea, which said the drills this month were “kicking up war zeal.” Above, a military exercise in Pohang, South Korea, in April. With President Trump and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, recently trading threats of nuclear war, some are asking whether the exercises could be used as a bargaining chip to persuade the North to freeze its weapons program. Residents of Seoul, the South Korean capital, which is firmly within range of North Korean artillery, are largely unshaken by the threat, our correspondent reports. […]

Charlottesville and Trump’s Response Reshape Virginia Gubernatorial Race

Mr. Northam said in an interview that “an awakening” had taken place in Virginia after the Charlottesville violence that left one woman dead, many more wounded and a liberal college town convulsing.“We have to be sensitive to all people’s feelings and represent all Virginians,” he said, criticizing his Republican opponent, Ed Gillespie, for not “denouncing the president” by name after Mr. Trump asserted that there were good people marching alongside Nazi sympathizers and Klansmen last weekend.Yet Mr. Northam has little appetite to make Virginia’s counties and cities uproot their memorials to the Confederacy and says the decision should remain up to the localities.Mr. Gillespie also believes local communities should make that decision. He argues that the statues should remain in place, but include added context clarifying that the lost cause they represent would have perpetuated slavery, not just the euphemistic “states’ rights” preferred by some traditionalists.“Rather than glorifying their objects, the statues should be instructional,” Mr. Gillespie said in a lengthy written statement earlier in the week.In an illustration of this state’s complicated politics, and the expectations of each party’s base, it is Mr. […]
