There is growing evidence Russia and Iran are arming the Taliban under the guise of fighting Daesh as the conflict becomes a stalemate. Should the US respond by negotiating a role for the Taliban in Afghanistan or by increasing our troop presence?

As the US was the country that originally armed them, I would say it's time to take their guns away.

Russia officially denies arming, financing, or providing any material support for the Taliban, but acknowledges that it has an intelligence-sharing relationship with the Taliban as part of its efforts to defeat Daesh cells in Afghanistan. The top US general in Afghanistan has described the War in Afghanistan as a stalemate and is expected to request more troops soon.
