Pentagon sends additional units to Afghanistan

20
The first additional units of the American troops will soon arrive in Afghanistan, reports RIA News the message of the head of the Central Command of the US Armed Forces, Joseph Votel.



Sending the military can be carried out within a few days.

The most important thing for us now is to get some opportunities to influence the current fighting season,
said Votel.

Earlier, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis reported that he was waiting for a plan of action from the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CEC) to decide on the number of troops sent to Afghanistan.

The general added that "this number may not coincide with the discussed numbers."

Earlier, President Donald Trump said that the powers of the American command in Afghanistan will be significantly expanded to combat terrorists. He also noted that the United States will no longer report on the number of its troops engaged in operations against terrorist groups, and in general on its military plans.

        During the stay of Americans in Afghanistan, heroin production increased tenfold. Well, what other American interests can be in this god-forgotten country?

          coffins to cover?

          Increase the supply of modern weapons to the Taliban, draw the American contingent into a guerrilla war, so that they get bogged down there, as in Vietnam.

      Apparently the combat activity of the Americans is directly related to the timing of the ripening of poppy fields, the harvest was harvested, the combat season is over.

    Under the Taliban, the cultivation of opium poppy was prohibited. Apparently now because of the Taliban there are problems with the business, trying to maintain investment wink

    For 16 years, they have been "expanding" the possibilities of combating the terrorism they have generated, and things are still there. I don’t know how many more years it will take for the mattresses to understand that they still have to disgrace themselves from Afghanistan with shame.

    each soldier passing through Afghanistan went through the stages of understanding the war-1-everything is fine, everything is going as it should, 2-everything is normal, that’s just a couple of thousand troops and everything wakes up well, 3-something is wrong here, you can live, 4-here everything deeply wrong, you have to run away from here !!! Artyom Borovik magazine twinkle article hidden war 1988 year. Americans are not taught anything by the mistakes of others. well, only d.u.r.a.k learns from their mistakes ...
