the taliban may capitalize on the president's decision about peace talks or sit them out and troop numbers will go down no matter what happened. for the taliban to sit on the sidelines, and the longest war, 19 years and counting. the president and this administration campaigned on ending endless wars. there is a responsible way to do that and a responsible way is sitting the battlefield predicate for negotiated withdrawal, not a withdrawal on the political timetable. jillian: do you think the president will start bringing troops home before a negotiation with the taliban is completed? >> much depends on how the taliban reacts to this offer as well as the territories the taliban is controlling. there is dispute on dod numbers,
and other open-source reporting that contests that information. it remains to be seen. the taliban is on the sidelines, it may not happen. todd: do you think the president can fulfill the campaign promise to extract us as much as possible from the region without creating a power vacuum that will be filled by let's call it what they are, our enemies, iran, russia? >> you hit the nail on the head. countries on the sidelines and on the periphery of afghanistan are simply waiting for america to make the mistake it made in syria on another side of the globe and afghanistan is the other side. russia has interest in afghanistan, pakistan to afghanistan at least, all these countries are looking to capitalize on american power vacuum. if they see the numbers drastically declined, the taliban has an uptick in attacks, they have an incentive to work with the taliban and make it look like america was driven out of its longest war.
carley: donald trump called of peace negotiations after the bombing that killed 5 people including a us soldier. what has changed from then to now? >> perhaps there is a political desire to go back to the idea of a negotiated settlement with the taliban. it will be tough to make peace with such folks but there is an overwhelming political desire there is again going to have to be a battlefield predicate and i don't see changes in us force posture that strengthen the ability to get that predicate. if anything, the desire to get troops out is so strong we may end of hurting ourselves at the negotiating table if we withdraw regardless of what the taliban and says because the enemy gets the vote. we have to watch closely how the taliban reacts. todd: flash forward to thanksgiving 2020.
what is our presence in afghanistan? >> it will be somewhat diminished but us forces will still be there. how those neighboring countries, russia, pakistan and iran will be key. carley: thanks for being with us, we appreciate it. 18 minutes after the hour, decorating for the holidays can be dangerous, just ask clark griswold.
