we’re expecting you around the world today on CNN 10 and as promised in our see you this Thursday first story our thousands of additional US proof headed to the southern Asian country of Afghanistan that’s something that US national security advisors may be requesting from President Donald Trump conflict in Afghanistan is America’s longest war it began under former president george w bush in 2001 that’s when the taliban who ruled Afghanistan at that time refused to turn over the al-qaeda terrorists who were responsible for the September 11th attacks on the United States conflict raged in the years that followed with a coalition led by the US fighting Taliban and al-qaeda forces former President Barack Obama promised to end the war there but instead he left office earlier this year with more than 8,000 US troops still serving in Afghanistan and though Donald Trump when he was a candidate promised to put an end to what he called nation-building President Trump may be expanding the American footprint in Afghanistan just like in 2001 the Taliban still posed a challenge in the country President Trump is about to decide on a Pentagon plan for beefing up the u.s. fight against the Taliban and Isis in Afghanistan the first option sending as many as 5,000 additional US troops to bolster the 8,400 already there the goal is to pressure the Taliban to the negotiating table candidate Trump initially opposed sending more troops the later acknowledged the need for military presence do I love it I think about it no I like I think it’s important that we number one keep a presence there and ideally you know a presence of pretty much what they’re talking about 5,000 soldiers but our more troops the only answer from the president one of the things that he is his national security team to do is to actually think the strut rethink the strategy how do we actually how do we win how do we eliminate the threat he has to square the circle between no more nation-building reducing America’s footprint abroad and his pledge to go after bad guys defense secretary James Madison says progress is being made in Afghanistan we’re up against a determined enemy as I said Isis has been thrown back there al Qaeda has been unable to amount attacks out of Afghanistan after US troop levels rose to 100,000 in mid 2010 President Obama set a plan to reduce the US effort with the Taliban now back on the rise commanders want Trump to also approve authority to conduct more airstrikes and ground operations what we need to watch for and be careful about is if 10,000 becomes 20,000 20,000 becomes 30,000 we’ve been there since 2001 that’s 15 plus years not a lot to show for it president Trump already has given more authority to commanders overseeing operations in Iraq Syria Yemen and Somalia in Afghanistan the decision to launch the Moab bomb for the first time was made by the general on the ground but it is US Special Operations Forces that have suffered casualties in repeated counterterrorism operations a total of 12 killed in combat in the last year a warning from the top commander we’re not a panacea we are not the ultimate solution for every problem and you will not hear that coming from us ten-second trivia which of these words comes from a Spanish term meaning cauldron caldera calibrate Calais or tell site thanks volcanoes for this one caldera which is Spanish

travelers will be safe the Philippines isn’t a particularly large country in a land area it’s a little bigger than the US state of Arizona but its islands are spread out over several hundred miles and because they’re so pristine with everything from diverse marine life to unique and fascinating calderas its appeal to tourists is as clear as the waters around it we the cleanest originally is an archipelago country so there are around 300 volcanoes each one of them offers a different kind of attraction I am power load the veteran if I’m the resident mechanology sub-caliber cane observatory pal volcano is one of the smallest volcanoes in the world but definitely one of the most destructive and violent during its eruption of PvP this is unique because it’s considered as a an island within
