      Three months ago,
     Army General John Nicholson spoke about military operations against the Taliban. Nicholson said he needed "; more troops to end what he called a "stalemate" in Afghanistan.
     Since then, spring has returned to the country. In recent years, the warmer weather has linked to new fighting between Taliban and international forces.
     Yet the U.S. administration has yet to announce its plans for Afghanistan.
     Sean Spicer is a spokesman for President Donald Trump.
     "No decision has been made, so let's not get ahead of what that ultimate policy will be."
     U.S. military officials more international troops to Afghanistan.
     American and international military leaders have sent additional troops to the country in the past to fight Taliban forces. But experts say any additional troops sent in the future will be deployed differently.
     Thomas Spoehr is a retired lieutenant general. He currently directs the Washington-based Heritage Foundation National Defense Center.
     "This time we are directly enabling the Afghan army, so we're trying to make that army more powerful, than what we did in the past."
     Officials say the administration's policy will be directed more on the needs of the international force than the number of troops. They think the administration could provide support for increased Afghan air power and special-forces.

     Daniel Coats is the U.S. Director of National Intelligence.
     " assesses that the political and security situation in Afghanistan will almost certainly deteriorate through 2018, even with a modestincrease in military assistance by the United States and its partners."
     The Taliban now controls more territory in Afghanistan than at any time since 2001. But more military pressure could be a way to force the Taliban to begin negotiating with the Afghan government.
     Officials tell VOA that Afghan forces have a goal of slow, but continuing progress over the next few years, not a fast defeat of the Taliban.
     Some have criticized the Afghan military's "stalemate" with the Taliban. But American generals say the anti-
     "The one objective we had for why we went there in the first place that -- over the last 15-and-a-half years -- is the avoidance of another attack from that area, going forward."
     The importance of the anti-terrorism operation has increased since Islamic State fighters moved to Afghanistan. Their arrival and the decision to support a long-term fight against the Taliban lead many experts to think that Trump will not seek to remove U.S. troops from Afghanistan anytime soon.
