Military Review

The Pentagon has disclosed data on the number of US troops in the three "hot" points

28
As of September 30, the number of US troops reached 15,3 thousands in Afghanistan, thousands in Iraq - 8,9 thousands, in Syria - thousands 1,72, reports RIA News Post press service of the Pentagon.




The contingent in Afghanistan is the most numerous among the countries where active hostilities are taking place. This is a little more than the plans that were previously announced by the administration of US President Donald Trump.

At the end of the 2016 of the year (under Barack Obama), the American contingent in Afghanistan numbered around 8,4 thousands of troops. In August, the 2017-th number of military increased to 11-thousand. Later, the media reported on Trump's intention to send about 3 thousands more to Afghanistan.

Recall that since January 1, 2015, the non-combat mission of NATO, “Strong Support”, has been operating in Afghanistan, the main purpose of which is to train and advise 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.

    I can’t wait for the moment when they begin to collapse their bases around the world.

      By the way, they do this. They closed something, preserved something, and modernized it. They certainly will not completely collapse until this worm spoiling around the world exists.

        Unless there is a full-blown crisis in the west, there is no justice at all. I think so!

      They recently ventured this topic. But here the principle is in effect: "If somewhere it wanes, then somewhere it is sure to be added." So if they are reduced in the world, they will simply be added at our borders.

    Recall, from January 1, 2015, the non-combat mission of NATO "Strong Support" has been operating in Afghanistan, the main purpose of which is ...

    ... the protection and defense of the "magic garden".

          Of course, the "great Goodwin" and such "wizards" roam around the world, bringing destruction, suffering, pain and death to people just because they want to live as they want, and not as "great Goodwin".

    And all sorts of PMCs also counted? Of course not. And in Syria, why are they? On what basis, sorry?

      For this, PMCs did so that they could be manipulated.

    in Syria - 1,72 thousand people, the Pentagon press service reports to RIA Novosti.

    They lie as always. Outsourcing - how many staff? Base security? Maintenance of military equipment and aircraft? And what is the result? Offhand about 5-7 thousand. And the instructors in the ranks of the barmalei? It is high time these mercilessly wet to the heap without diplomacy and ritual dances.
