US military killed in helicopter crash in Afghanistan


It clarifies the agency Xinhua, the incident occurred in the province of Logar in the east of the country, south of Kabul. According to the provincial governor, Mohammed Khalim Fed, the helicopter was in a combat operation.

During an operation against militants in the Hirvara region this morning, a helicopter made an emergency landing, causing five people on board to be injured
- he said.

According to NATO, the helicopter was not shot down by the enemy. The exact cause of the crash has not yet been established, an investigation is underway. At the same time, representatives of the Taliban (an organization banned in Russia) have already stated that the helicopter was shot down by gunmen, and all the soldiers on board were killed.

In Afghanistan, the non-combat mission of NATO "Strong Support" has been operating since 1 in January of 2015, the main purpose of which is to train and advise representatives of the Afghan security forces. It replaced the military operation conducted by the anti-terrorist coalition under the command of the United States and the international security forces (ISAF) under the command of NATO.

      Well, why so, take a better look at what is happening with the army in Ukraine. Such non-combat losses are worse than war.

            Where is your house, American soldier? What did you forget in a foreign country? Defended American democracy far from home? I think your government knows the answer - ask them when you will meet there!

                That is yes. He flew himself shot-bombed. And do not want to carry out the order: Bomb the village. By the way, formal excuses, panos and scrofula, are not accepted.

              A counter question, but what did our Russian soldier in Syria forget? I don’t understand how to mock the death of a man who died for the good of his country.

                I will answer that the Russian soldier in Syria forgot.
                Russia has a defense front, as it is called Ukraine, Syria, it doesn’t matter. Russia is defending itself from the enemy. It’s not difficult to understand, I hope you will understand. And the Americans produce drugs in Afghanistan on a global scale and feed this potion to patients in Europe through Kosovo and around The world. Is there a difference, poison peoples or defend their homeland?

                  these are tales and there is no question of any global scale in its production and export.

            It does not matter. Losses should be covered, and they should not be covered in our media, so that citizens continue to support the operation in Syria, and so, about 40-100 of our children killed in Syria, I did not hear a word, I apologize, there were reports about 3-5 people .

    The helicopter crash in military operations is a fairly normal circumstance, and even more so the death of the military. What confused me in this news was the Xinhua News Agency, and then the confirmation, the NATO press service. China is becoming a certain player or the distribution of roles we are starting to miss, but the fact that the Americans are starting to reckon with the Chinese is already a confirmed fact

    And the Taliban write that they managed to bring down an American helicopter in 43 soldiers on board! Maybe they exaggerate, maybe not all American citizens are there (even if they serve in the US Army), but the Americans at first refused, therefore vaguely confirmed the "helicopter incident", now they give "one dead and six wounded."
