US pullout spells trouble for Afghan airforce

Country's fledgling air force could face major problems if Washington withdraws all its forces next year.

    The White House is reportedly considering a zero option in Afghanistan, which means all US troops would be withdrawn by the end of next year.

    However, with limited capabilities, Afghan's fledgling air force could face major problems if the US withdraws completely.
