The new book A Very Stable Genius documents how Trump lashed out at attempts by military leaders and diplomats to teach him about . alliances and obligations around the globe. I don’t think he knows how to win, the president said, impugning Nicholson, who was not present at the meeting.

The Taliban control much of the country. Still, life has improved, particularly in the country’s cities, where opportunities for education have grown. Afghanistan remains one of the world’s largest sources of refugees and migrants. More than 2,400 American soldiers and more than 38,000 Afghan civilians have died. Many more girls are now in school. And democratic institutions have been built - although they are shaky at best

The US House of Representatives has voted in favor of a bill restricting President Donald Trump’s ability to wage war on Iran. The vote comes a day after escalatory strikes nearly brought both the US and Iran to the brink of war. Despite its passage, the bill lacks the teeth to actually curb Trump’s warmaking powers, should he decide to take military action against Iran.

The president’s motive for abandoning the Kurds is unclear, but the continued US presence in foreign wars is a disaster, says Guardian columnist Simon Jenkins. Trump has been emphatic about withdrawal, but his unpredictability and aggressive rhetoric has muddied his intentions. While Trump’s motives or thought process for the latest move aren’t exactly clear – as ever – that he has enraged conservative and liberal interventionists alike is as reassuring as it is alarming. Belligerent meddling is now embedded in the west’s world view
