US Air Force May Increase Strike Rate In Afghanistan

16
American aviation may intensify terrorist attacks in Afghanistan and expand the training of the Afghan Air Force in connection with the latest statement by Donald trump to continue the military company in the republic, reports RIA News with reference to the Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force David Goldfein.



According to Goldfein, so far, the top leadership of the US Armed Forces "has just begun the process of practical implementation of Trump's strategy." When asked if the Air Force plans to send more resources to Afghanistan, he replied: "It is possible."

In fact, it is too early to say what it will mean in terms of increases and reductions,
added the general.

At the same time, he noted that the Air Force "is studying the possibility of increasing air operations, including to support ground forces." The same goes for training Afghan pilots. Goldfein also said that the Afghan military "had been successful thanks to training and equipment supplies from the US," but added that "there is still a long way to go."

Obviously, the Joint Chiefs of Staff will work out their plans and make proposals, but I think that the leadership from the President was clear enough yesterday, and we plan to go on the offensive and destroy these terrorist networks,
in turn, said Air Force Minister Heather Wilson.

According to her, Trump's comments "represent a strategic correction in military operations," as well as a significant change in policy toward Pakistan.

At the same time, Goldfein said that he did not know anything about any changes in military ties between the United States and Pakistan.

On Monday, Trump announced a new strategy for action in Afghanistan. He refused to talk about the military aspects of the strategy, but made it clear that there would be no quick withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. The president also clearly defined the role of Pakistan in the Afghan problem: there was a direct threat to Islamabad that he "could lose a lot if he continued to harbor terrorists on his territory."

      Hello Volodya! hi Here's to you, grandma, and rock and roll. In words - the termination of the import of power democracy, in deeds - an increase in the number of troops in Afghanistan and the likelihood (read - fact) of an increase in air strikes. Yap orange this Trump.

        Good day, Pasha! Although it is difficult to call him kind - the second day the rain does not stop.
        I also drew attention to this statement by Trump yesterday. Either we understand something wrong, or they say something wrong recourse

          The second is true. It is not necessary to sprinkle with words of great intelligence and courage. But to answer for their words with deeds is the lot of the strong and wise. The conclusions are clear. wink

    I recall the phrase of the German general about the Americans from 17 moments of spring: "These fools think that the war can be won by bombing alone."

    It would be correct to say "want" to increase the number of strikes. Obviously that's what they always want. They simply do not know anything else.
