WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump threatens to kill tens of millions of Afghans in a bloody war.
Trump said the United States could rapidly end the nearly 19-year war in Afghanistan but it would involve killing “tens of millions” of people.
“We’ve been very effective in Afghanistan, and if we wanted to do a certain method of war, we would win that very quickly, but many, many, really, tens of millions of people would be killed, and we think it’s unnecessary,” Trump said.
Similar comments were made by Trump in July during an Oval Office meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan. There, Trump claimed he could win the war “in a week” but said he did not want to go that route, because “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.”
