  3. It’s not easy to talk about ***, especially if you’re grappling with insecurities. For the longest time, erectile dysfunction was ascribed to psychological origins. Most ancient cultures, including Ayurveda, believed that ED can be treated with the help of natural herbs such as Indian ginseng, sesame powder, Safed Musli and more. Today, we know more about its causes and have treatments to address the issue. But before we talk about eliminating the condition, we need to dispel the stigma associated with ED. Studies have clarified that ED is not just “in your head”. According to a 2017 study by the Department of Urology Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans, 20% of men across all age groups battle ED in India and 30% of them are younger than 40. Most of the times, it is experienced due to an underlying cause that can be treated. But no cure is possible until men accept the problem and stop shying away from asking for help. What Is Erectile Dysfunction? © iStock Erectile Dysfunction (ED), also known as impotence, is a condition in which a man experiences difficulty in getting or maintaining an erection during sexual performance. The symptoms may also include reduced sexual desire or libido. If the condition lasts for more than a few weeks or months, your doctor is likely to diagnose you with ED. Signs Of Erectile DysfunctionEvery piece of the body including your emotions, hormones, brain, nerves, muscles and blood vessels play an intricate role in male arousal. When any of these isn’t aligned, it results in some kind of dysfunction. Your mental health impacts your sexual ability equally. Stress, anxiety and other mental health concerns can worsen erectile dysfunction. Experiencing minor or occasional sexual problems don’t necessarily mean you’re dealing with erectile dysfunction. But lookout for the consistency of these symptoms. ● Reduced or no desire for ***. ● Inability to get an erection. ● Inability to maintain an erection. __ECOMPRODUCT__1026__ Who Is At The Risk?The risk of ED increases as you age, especially if you have lived a sedentary lifestyle. It can worsen if you: ● Have a psychological condition like anxiety, depression or stress. ● Have an injury that might damage the nerves and arteries that contribute to erections. ● Use tobacco, drugs or alcohol. ● Are overweight. ● Are undergoing radiation treatment for cancer. ● Are taking antidepressants or high blood pressure medications. ● Have heart disease or diabetes. __ECOMPRODUCT__1316__ How To Prevent Erectile DysfunctionThe healthier you are, the easier it’ll be to fight erectile dysfunction. There’s no one-size-fits-all way to prevent ED but you can avoid persistent problems by taking care of its causes and yourself. The following measures may help: ● Reduce stress. ● Take care of your mental health. ● Exercise daily. ● Limit alcohol consumption. ● Quit smoking and stop using recreational drugs. ● Manage diabetes and heart disease. __ECOMPRODUCT__1465__ How Can You Treat Erectile DysfunctionThe causes of ED vary and so does the treatment. Work with your doctor to create a plan that’s best for you. CounsellingIf you feel anxious, depressed or have any other mental health concern, seek therapy. Along with consulting a professional, indulge in relaxing activities such as music, painting, poetry or aromatherapy. Geranium oil helps those with low libido. __ECOMPRODUCT__1466__ Ayurveda to the rescueIt’s not feasible for everyone to collect and consume the recommended herbs for sexual wellness. But you can always rely on natural supplements that provide men with the right nutrients optimised for better and stronger erections. __ECOMPRODUCT__1436__ Lifestyle changesManage weight, exercise or do yoga consistently, stop smoking, avoid alcohol and illicit drugs and manage your health with the help of a doctor. __ECOMPRODUCT__1297__ Prescribed medicationIf the above treatments don’t work, your doctor may prescribe oral medications—like Viagra, Levitra, Aronix, Tadalafil, Stendra and Cialis, self-injection such as an Alprostadil or testosterone replacement. Physical treatments***** pump or penile implants. However, these aren’t generally considered until every other treatment has failed. Final ThoughtsRecognise the symptoms and consult a professional. If you’re diagnosed with erectile dysfunction, your doctor will help you figure out the cause of ED. Work on the treatment options and before you know it, you’ll start seeing the results.

  8. geo_embedgallery LAHORE: Peshawar Zalmi have qualified to play the second eliminator against Karachi Kings after defeating Quetta Gladiators by one run in a nail-biting last-ball thriller at Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium on Tuesday. In a dramatic turn of events in the final over, Gladiators all-rounder Anwar Ali smashed three sixes and one four to alter the 158-run chase to three runs off one ball with only one wicket remaining. But a run-out on Mir Hamza's last delivery Peshawar Zalmi knocking Quetta Gladiators out of the tournament. Zalmi's Hasan Ali was awarded Man of the Match after he picked up two wickets for 21 runs. Speaking in the post-match ceremony, Gladiators' skipper Sarfraz Ahmed said the team lost a winnable game. "The match was in our hands, and I feel we lost the game because of our own errors. Nawaz and I shouldn't have been dismissed that time. If we were sensible, we could've even taken it to the super over, but the pressure got the better of the boys in the end." Gladiators suffered a series of setbacks in their chase of 158 runs as Umaid Asif removed both Mahmudullah and Rilee Rossouw within a single over. Fast bowler Wahab Riaz took the wickets of Thisara Perera and Hassan Khan on scores of 12 and O respectively. Gladiators had a nightmarish start as they lost both openers early, after a gutsy 62 off 35 balls by Liam Dawson lifted Peshawar Zalmi to a competitive total of 157. Hasan Ali had Asad Shafiq out on first ball. A pumped-up Hasan Ali removed Tom Kohler-Cadmore in his second over, leaving Quetta looking shaky at 17-2. Just as a batting collapse looked unavoidable, skipper Sarfraz Ahmed and all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz anchored Quetta's inning. Their resistance, however, was ended in a dramatic fashion by pacer Sameen, who brought Peshawar back into the game with two wickets in two balls (Sarfraz 35 off 21, Nawaz 35 off 32) in the 10th over. Just as Quetta appeared to bounce back with Mahmudullah and Rossouw on the crease, Umaid Asif delivered a potentially match-changing over to dismiss both the batsmen within the space of three balls. Wahab Riaz cleaned up the lower order, taking the crucial wickets of Thisara Perera (12) and Hassan Khan (0) to take Peshawar to the brink of victory. 1st inning: Rahat's four-for; Dawson's 62 geo_embedgallery Peshawar had a wobbly start, losing in-form Kamran Akmal for a three-ball duck to Rahat Ali, after Quetta opted to bowl first in swinging conditions. West Indian Andre Fletcher was dismissed soon after for 1, by Mir Hamza. But Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Hafeez led Peshawar's recovery, taking the team past 50 without any further loss before Hafeez was bowled by Mahmudullah for 25 off 14. Peshawar were sent reeling when Tamim dashed down the pitch, only to be caught by a fumbling Kohler-Cadmore in the deep for 27 off 29. Perera took the night's second great catch to send Saad Nasim back to the dugout for 9 off 13, as Peshawar struggled at 86-5. Dawson's resistance, however, steadied Peshawar, as he smashed 50 off just 29 balls to end Quetta's dominance in the game. Skipper Sammy, who walked out to bat to a standing ovation from the crowd, struggled to score, falling to Rahat Ali for 2 off 5 balls. Two balls later, Rahat Ali dismissed Dawson, finishing with 4 wickets from 16 runs. Perera took 2 wickets in return for 24 runs. Mohammad Nawaz, Mir Hamza, Hassan Khan, and Mahmudullah took a wicket each.

Today's encounter is a do-or-die for both: the losing team will get eliminated from the competition, while the winning team will play Karachi Kings in Lahore tomorrow (March 21). Both Peshawar and Quetta have won 5 and lost 5 matches in this season's league stage, but Peshawar edged out Quetta on Net Run Rate to get the third spot on the points table.
  9. The government wants supermarkets to introduce plastic-free aisles and intends to inject new funding into plastics innovation, she will say in a speech outlining proposals. Photo: REUTERS/file LONDON: Britain plans to eliminate all avoidable plastic waste within 25 years, Prime Minister Theresa May will announce Thursday as part of long-term plans for the environment. The government wants supermarkets to introduce plastic-free aisles and intends to inject new funding into plastics innovation, she will say in a speech outlining proposals. Meanwhile, changes to the tax system and charges on single-use plastic items such as takeaway containers will also be considered, according to May´s Downing Street office, which released a preview of her remarks. "In years to come, I think people will be shocked at how today we allow so much plastic to be produced needlessly," May will say. "One million birds and over 100,000 other sea mammals and turtles die every year from eating and getting tangled in plastic waste. One in three fish caught in the English Channel contains pieces of plastic. "This truly is one of the great environmental scourges of our time." However, opposition leaders and environmental campaigners were quick to condemn the proposals as dangerously insufficient. Vince Cable, leader of the Liberal Democrats, the fourth-biggest party in parliament, said Britain should be "eliminating all avoidable plastic waste now -- a target of 2042 beggars belief". Louise Edge, the senior oceans campaigner at Greenpeace UK, said the measures "don´t match the scale of the environmental crisis we face. "The overall plastics plan lacks urgency, detail and bite," she said. "The most glaring gap is support for deposit return schemes" on plastic bottles, Edge added. "We just can´t wait another 25 years before eliminating throwaway plastic." Among its proposals, the government intends to encourage supermarkets to introduce plastic-free aisles in which all the food is loose, giving consumers the choice of doing without the plastic wrapping. Meanwhile, a five pence (seven US cents, six euro cents) charge on plastic carrier bags will be extended to all retailers in England. It already applies elsewhere in Britain and to larger stores in England. Downing Street said it would examine how the tax system or charges could encourage industry to take more responsibility for the environmental impacts of their products, with a consultation on reducing the volume of single-use plastics starting next month. "The UK will demonstrate global leadership. We must reduce the demand for plastic, reduce the number of plastics in circulation and improve our recycling rates," May will add. "To tackle it we will take action at every stage of the production and consumption of plastic." Britain will direct some of its international development aid towards tackling pollution and reducing plastic waste abroad. It will also seek to strike an accord with the Commonwealth on reducing plastic waste in the oceans when it hosts the group´s biennial summit in April.
  10. Facebook Inc has eliminated transaction fees on donations made to non-profit organizations on its platform, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said on Wednesday, a change that could help the world?s largest social media network expand its presence in online fund raising. Facebook had been charging a 5 percent transaction fee on donations made to non-profits via its website or app. However, it will continue to impose fees on fund raisers established by individuals, including a payment processing fee of 6.9 percent, plus 30 cents per donation. Other online fund-raising sites charge transaction fees on donations of about 6-8 percent. The social network is also setting up a $50 million per year Facebook Donations Fund to match givings on its platform to some causes, such as natural disaster relief. ?When I started Facebook, I wasn?t thinking about it as a way to raise money to fight diseases, but a few years in, we noticed many people were using it to raise money for different causes,? Zuckerberg said at a Facebook event in New York. The new initiative by Facebook comes at a time when the company has faced rising criticism over Russian propaganda and fake news stories spreading on its platform during last year?s US presidential election. Zuckerberg in September, in a Facebook post, said he regretted saying after the presidential election that it was ?crazy? to think that misinformation on Facebook changed the election?s outcome. Last week, Facebook said it would build a web page to allow users to see which Russian propaganda accounts they have liked or followed, after US lawmakers demanded that the social network be more open about the reach of the accounts. In February, a petition signed by 42,000 people demanded that Facebook waive the fees it charges a charity for raising $1.5 million on its website. Zuckerberg on Wednesday also said that Facebook is launching a software program, called Fundraisers API, that will allow users to sync their Facebook fund raisers with other fund-raising pages. The charges by other online fund-raising include Gofundme, at 7.9 percent, plus 30 cents per donation, in the United States; Kickstarter at 8 percent, plus 20 cents per donation; Indiegogo at 8 percent, plus 30 cents per donation.

According to the ISPR, Pakistan and Afghanistan also held bilateral military cooperation meetings. A six-member Pakistan military delegation, headed by DGMO Major General Sahir Shamshad Mirza, participated in the meetings, the ISPR said. Pakistan's DGMO Maj Gen Sahir Mirza The participants expressed their resolve to continue the fight against the common threat of terrorism. During the meeting, the matters of mutual security interest were also discussed. ?The three sides expressed their commitment to eliminate Daesh from the region which can best be achieved through information sharing, complementary efforts and enhanced cooperation,? said the army?s media wing. In the Pak-Afghan bilateral meeting, important issues such as cross-border fire and attacks, counter terrorism, coordinated actions on the respective sides along the border and exchange of detainees were discussed. The ISPR said that both sides agreed to work on the commitments made at recent high-level meetings and make an action plan aimed at improving security along the border.

  12. ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Tuesday that the terrorist safe havens in Afghanistan must be eliminated immediately. While speaking to a foreign journalist, Abbasi reiterated that the Pakistani government ?has destroyed all the safe havens for terrorists inside the country." Pakistan has played the biggest role in the elimination of terrorism, he said, adding that it is wrong to think that Pakistan is the cause of instability in Afghanistan. ?Instability in Afghanistan affects Pakistan the most.? He added that Afghanistan can solve its own problems, adding ?the Afghan issue should not be made a part of the relationship between US and Pakistan.? Over the issue, he remarked that Pakistan is fighting agents of chaos constantly. ?We want to work with the US to eliminate terrorism. If the US has any queries it should discuss them with Pakistan.? Speaking about his governance, he said that the government has continued the development projects started by former PM Nawaz Sharif. ?Many political, social and security challenges have also been controlled by us.? The government will complete its tenure and hopefully strengthen democracy, he added. Abbasi earlier said it would be counter-productive for the United States to sanction Pakistani officials or further cut military assistance, warning it would hurt both countries? fight against militancy. The premier had said that any targeted sanctions by Washington against the Pakistani military and intelligence officials would not help US counter-terrorism efforts. US-Pakistan relations have frayed since President Donald Trump last month set out a new Afghanistan policy and lashed out at nuclear-armed Pakistan as a fickle ally that gives safe haven to ?agents of chaos? by harboring the Afghan Taliban and other militants. The United States has already begun conditioning future aid to Pakistan on progress Islamabad makes in tackling the Haqqani network, who it alleges are Pakistan-based and have helped the Taliban carry out deadly attacks inside Afghanistan. Pakistan denies hosting militant sanctuaries, and Islamabad bristles at claims it has not done enough to tackle militancy, noting it has borne the brunt of violence in the so-called war on terror, suffering more than 60,000 casualties since 2001.
  13. KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said on Monday that the entire nation needs to develop consensus on the issue of eliminating terrorism. He was addressing the media after a meeting with Khawaja Izharul Hassan, the opposition leader in the provincial assembly. Hassan, a senior leader of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P), survived an attempt on his life on Saturday in an attack which left his police guard and a passing-by child dead, along with one of the attackers. The chief minister, accompanied by several Pakistan Peoples Party leaders and provincial ministers, called on Hassan and was received by MQM-P's Faisal Subzwari and Hassan as the latter's residence. Expressing grief at the loss of life during the attack on Hassan, Shah said no one expects to be attacked after Eid prayers. "We all need to find a solution [to combat this menace]," said the chief minister. Replying to a query, he said the provincial government had asked the federal government to put several organisations and seminaries on a watch list but that is yet to be done. CM Murad Ali Shah (left) with MQM-P's Khawaja Izharul Hasan at the latter's residence. Photo: Geo News When asked about recent cases where terrorists come from educated backgrounds, he said, "we will see if educational institutes have become breeding grounds for terrorists". Talking about the issues surrounding the recently completed census, he said they have reservations about the provisional results. "We can?t comprehend the meagre growth shown in Karachi?s population. We will consult other parties and come up with a united stance," he said. Shah also delved into measures the census teams could have taken to make the exercise more transparent. Addressing the media, Hassan thanked people for their well wishes and asked for prayers for the deceased and injured. "This was a deliberate act of terrorism," he said, adding that the chief minister should head a collective movement against terrorism to get to the ?masterminds?. Search for 'mastermind' of MQM leader's attack under way Malir SSP Rao Anwar said Sarosh Siddiqui escaped after killing a policeman during raid earlier today Earlier today, the Malir police raided a suspected terrorist hideout in the city's Kaneez Fatima Society which resulted in the death of a police official. Malir SSP Rao Anwar, who headed the operation, said the suspect, Sarosh Siddiqui, escaped during the raid and a search for him is under way. Anwar claimed Siddiqui is a senior figure of banned militant outfit Ansarul Shariah in Karachi and masterminded the attack on the MQM-P leader.
  14. The US currently has 8,400 troops deployed under the NATO banner. KABUL: US Senator John McCain visited Kabul Tuesday and said that Washington was counting on Pakistan's support to eliminate militancy in Afghanistan. McCain´s statement came one day after he and a bi-partisan Senate delegation visited Islamabad, where officials said he reinforced the country´s essential role in regional stability. "We expect they (Pakistan) will cooperate with us, particularly against the Haqqani network and against terrorist organisations," said McCain, chairman of the US Senate Armed Services Committee, in Kabul. The Senate visit to Islamabad and Kabul comes as the US is gearing up to send more troops to Afghanistan to support Afghan forces straining to beat back the resurgent Taliban. McCain called for more than just troops, however, urging "a strategy to win" the war which has dragged on for nearly 16 years and which even US generals concede is at a "stalemate". "The strongest nation on earth in this world should be able to win this conflict," he said, calling for diplomatic efforts alongside a military push. The US currently has 8,400 troops deployed under the NATO banner, and is thought to be mulling sending up to 4,000 more. Pentagon chief Jim Mattis has stressed his new approach, due to be presented to US President Donald Trump by mid-July, will have a broader "regional" emphasis, with no set timetable. Trump has remained remarkably taciturn on Afghanistan, but this month gave Mattis authority to set troop numbers at whatever level he saw fit. NATO, whose Operation Resolute Support numbers some 13,500 including the Americans, also promised last week to increase its presence in Afghanistan. Recent Taliban gains have shaken confidence in Afghanistan´s future and talk of sending NATO troops in has stoked fears the alliance could get sucked back into an unwinnable war. But Mattis refused recently to "put timelines" on the conflict. "The bottom line is that NATO has made a commitment to Afghanistan for freedom from fear and terror... You can´t let this be undone," he said in Brussels last week.
  15. CARDIFF: Bangladesh beat New Zealand by five wickets in their Champions Trophy Group A match at Cardiff on Friday, with Mossadek Hossain marking his return to the Bangladesh side by taking three wickets New Zealand slumped to a total of 265 for eight in a must-win Champions Trophy clash at Cardiff on Friday. New Zealand were well set while captain Kane Williamson (57) and Ross Taylor (63) were sharing a stand of 83 -- their third fifty partnership in as many matches this tournament. But, as happened in their no-result washout with Australia and defeat by England, the Blackcaps? innings collapsed once the experienced batsmen were out in quick succession. Mossadek, chosen ahead of fellow off-spinner Mehedi Hasan, took two wickets in three balls on his way to impressive figures of three for 13 in three overs. Fast bowler Taskin Ahmed, Bangladesh?s other change to a side that escaped with a no result against Australia, took two for 43 in eight overs. New Zealand, who had been 152 for three off 30 overs, only managed 113 more runs in the last 20 overs. Given 300 is now generally regarded as a ?par score?, Bangladesh were on top at the half-way stage -- especially as Williamson had won the toss. Both Bangladesh and New Zealand had to win this Group A match to stand a chance of going through to the semi-finals, although a victory for Australia against England at Edgbaston on Saturday would see them join the already-qualified tournament hosts in the last four. New Zealand opener Martin Guptill was in excellent touch after the match started an hour late due to rain and drove Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza for six. But Bangladesh?s change bowlers removed both Luke Ronchi and fellow opener Guptill to leave New Zealand 69 for two. The extra pace of Taskin, recalled instead of batsman Imrul Kayes, appeared to surprise Luke Ronchi (16), a mistimed pull lobbing gently to Mustafizur Rahman at mid-on. Guptill?s 33 then came to an end when he was lbw to Rubel Hossain. Williamson, fresh from scores of 100 and 87 against England and Australia, showed his class with several elegant fours. Taylor too drove Taskin down the ground before sweeping spinner Shakib Al Hasan for four. Williamson went on to complete a 58-ball fifty, but he ran himself out as Bangladesh were rewarded for building pressure. Taylor turned Shakib straight to Mossadek at short fine leg and non-striker Williamson set off for a single that was never on. With Taylor not moving, Williamson turned but was run out as Shakib tidied up a wayward throw from Mossadek. New Zealand needed Taylor to ?go on? to a big score but Taskin, spotting the batsman was trying to ramp him, adjusted his length and an 82-ball innings ended with a simple catch to short fine leg. Mossadek then removed New Zealand?s next three batsmen, striking twice in the 44th over when Neil Broom (36) sliced to backward point and Corey Anderson was plumb lbw for a duck. The spinner completed his haul by having Jimmy Neesham (23), yards down the pitch, stumped by Mushfiqur Rahim.
  16. KARACHI: Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah on Sunday vowed to get rid of terrorists and criminals spreading fear in Karachi, Geo News reported. The CM was speaking with regard to the mobile-snatching incident that took place earlier today near the city’s Hassan Square area, wherein a man – revealed to be Abdul Rehman – was shot dead when he refused to hand over his phone to the thieves. Shah took immediate notice of the death and condemned the act. Expressing anger at how Rehman got killed, he said, “I cannot tolerate innocent, peaceful citizens becoming victims of such incidents.” Related: Street crime continues; mobile-snatchers kill man for resisting handing over phone Consequently, the CM demanded a report from IG Sindh on the aforementioned killing. Promising to create peaceful living conditions for Karachiites, Shah went on to say, “These terrorists cannot escape our reach.” Unidentified suspects had opened fire at a coaster near Hassan Square that killed Rehman – the owner – and fled the scene. According to the driver, the vehicle was parked for a picnic-booking when two motorcyclists stopped nearby and demanded the passengers to hand over their cell phones. An investigation, which includes all individuals present in the coaster as well as the driver, is underway, police stated.
  17. WASHINGTON: After dropping a monster bomb on its fighters, then targeting its leader, the US military is looking to destroy Daesh’s Afghan branch before battle-hardened reinforcements arrive from Syria and Iraq. While US and Kabul government forces have mainly been combatting Taliban fighters since 2001, Daesh´s local offshoot -- also known as Islamic State-Khorasan, or ISIS-K -- has a stronghold in eastern Afghanistan. First emerging in 2015, ISIS-K overran large parts of Nangarhar and Kunar provinces, near the Pakistan border, but their part in the Afghan conflict had been largely overshadowed by the operations against the Taliban. Many Americans first heard of ISIS-K last month when the US dropped the "Mother Of All Bombs" on its Nangarhar bastion -- an aerial munition that the Pentagon said was the biggest non-nuclear weapon it had ever used in combat. US and Afghan forces then raided a compound last week close to the site of the bombing, with the Pentagon saying it believed it had killed ISIS-K´s leader Abdul Hasib during the operation. Captain Bill Salvin, spokesman for US Forces-Afghanistan, said the local Daesh presence peaked at between 2,500 to 3,000 but that defections and recent battlefield losses had reduced their number to a maximum of 800. "We have a very good chance of destroying them in 2017, making it very clear that when the ISIS fighters are destroyed elsewhere around the globe that this is not the place for you to come to plot your attacks," Salvin told AFP. US-backed fighters also appear to have Daesh on the ropes in Syria and Iraq, where an operation to wrest back control of the major northern city of Mosul has been ongoing since October. Militants on the move But both the military and analysts acknowledge there is a danger of Daesh fighters heading to Afghanistan if they are forced out of Iraq and Syria. Michael O´Hanlon, a senior fellow in foreign policy at the Brookings Institution, said that while Daesh should ultimately be defeated in Afghanistan, the Pentagon´s timeline may be overly optimistic. A definitive victory could take "a long time due, partly (due) to the proximity of Pakistan as well as the possible flow of fighters" from the Middle East as the "group loses sanctuaries there," O´Hanlon told AFP. The Taliban, which first emerged in the mid-1990s in southern Afghanistan, managed to conquer most of the country before its 2001 ouster with the help of a range of foreign militants, including Pakistanis, Saudis and Chechens. Analysts say that as well as Afghans, ISIS-K includes disaffected Pakistani and Uzbek militants among its ranks who used to fight for the Taliban. It first emerged as a significant player in Afghanistan in early 2015 when its fighters overran the Taliban in parts of the east and has subsequently claimed responsibility for a string of bomb attacks. ISIS-K´s defeat would be an important victory for the US, which has struggled to boast of clear wins after forcing the Taliban out of Kabul in 2001 in the initial aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Bill Roggio, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and editor of the Long War Journal, said ISIS-K had "withstood multiple US-backed offensives over the past two years." But while their defeat would be a boost to the US, Roggio said the Taliban and their long-time Al-Qaeda allies were still a much bigger challenge. "It´s not that they don´t pose a threat, but I would argue that the Taliban pose a far greater threat to the stability of Afghanistan," Roggio told AFP. "It would be basically winning a battle, but we are still losing the war, which is basically the story of Afghanistan since we´ve been involved there." America has about 8,400 troops in Afghanistan. Most belong to a NATO mission to train and advise Afghan partner forces fighting the Taliban.
