      It’s not in vain that our devils are wet in Syria, they would certainly have climbed to us .. Like after they left Afghanistan, they crawled behind, organizing the massacre and devastation .. Kazakhstan seemed to have shown a good result in military games .. I hope that if they fight back, while Russia will deploy its divisions?

            Then the Taliban will have to break through the Turkmens to the boats in the Caspian. laughing . No other options are visible. There is a hypothetical breakthrough of militants from Iraq through Iran, or Dagestanis will stir up Chechnya-3. laughing
            In Afghanistan, militants are seen moving on turntables. Who could it be, and who could provide such special vehicles? They write that PMCs will be responsible for the military situation there. And immediately the questions arise: 1. Who will win? Those who are fighting for their land or those who are for money? 2. What are the rights and obligations of these wild geese? What are the challenges? 3. When fighting, the mercenaries will give priority to their own lives or the lives of civilians - I think this is clear ?! hi

    Work for the military for the future (unemployment does not threaten them) - this is where this concept is filthy.

    They will run away who will not be killed In the first hour and a half. Russia will not have time to deploy its divisions Yes, and is it necessary? Maybe then when the army ends with the Kazakhs. Writing on the brain without sentiment. Or maybe leave it for later.
