Yes, after 16 years of a festering failed war, the Trump administration has decided to double-down in Afghanistan.

One is reminded of Einstein's definition of insanity - repeating the same policy and expecting different results!

What seems like insanity to us makes perfect sense to the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex.

And yet some are still committed to the idea that he's not a hawk.

Well, to be fair, Obama also doubled-down on Afghanistan and he most certainly isn't a hawk - though the argument could be made that he is one on US national security issues.

It helps to remember that US corporations building/owning a gas pipeline through Afghanistan IS what US national security is all about. The US military is devoted to making the world a playground for US capitalism.

Does a military photo-shop constitute disinformation?
