1. Somehow, I think it's something that's been going on

for a while so just asking about 2019 dead is not sufficient.

2. 2 U.S. Troops Killed By Taliban Bomb In Southern Afghanistan

We had troops killed in February too.

I hope we can sort this out.

Also, the UK might have suffered losses too.

Edit to add:

NYT: Two American Soldiers Killed in Shootout With Afghan Forces
Six American service members were wounded, a spokesman for the U.S. military said. He said a person in an Afghan uniform appeared to have opened fire. (FEB)

The shooting comes in a delicate time in the war, as American negotiators have been locked in weeks of talks with the Taliban to finalize a peace deal.

If a Taliban hand is seen in the shooting, it is sure to complicate those talks, which officials and diplomats suggested on Saturday had reached a promising stage.

Last September, President Trump called off talks with the Taliban, citing a car-bombing in Kabul that had killed an American soldier as well nearly a dozen Afghans. It took months of trust building, including a prisoner swap, to get the two sides to return to the negotiating table in the hopes of finalizing a deal that could end America’s longest war.

3. From the article...looks like Putin got what he wanted from Trump

Twenty-two American service members were killed in Afghanistan in 2019, the highest number since NATO combat operations in the country ended at the end of 2014.
