The US war in Afghanistan will end by late 2014, President Barack Obama vowed Tuesday, saying that another 34,000 American troops will come home over the next year.

"This drawdown will continue. And by the end of next year, our war in Afghanistan will be over," Obama said in his annual State of the Union address.
