The Pentagon plans to transfer additional forces to Afghanistan

22
Early next year, the US plans to deploy a new brigade in Afghanistan, whose troops will assist the local security forces in fighting the Taliban formations (the organization is banned in the Russian Federation), reports RIA News Post Air Force Brigadier General Lance Bunch.


The fighter of the Afghan security forces.

At the beginning of 2018, a new brigade of assistance to security forces (Afghanistan) will be deployed in the theater (military operations) and will further enhance our ability to advise the Afghan forces, which are entering the new fighting season,
said Bunch.

According to him, the decision to deploy additional forces was “made in the framework of the new strategy of the US administration in Afghanistan.”

Currently there are about 14,5 thousand US troops in Afghanistan. Earlier it was reported that the number of US military advisers in this country will be increased to provide more effective assistance to the local military.

Recall, the United States, together with its allies since 2001, have been conducting an operation against the Taliban movement in Afghanistan. Since 2015, the decisive support mission has been operating there, the main purpose of which is to train and advise representatives of the Afghan security forces.

        Yeah. These "blacks" have recently been called Ishilovites. In order to provide them with comfortable movement, cover and training, the United States is increasing its grouping. The Taliban in this case really becomes a partisan movement, against the invaders in the form of mattresses, as well as the invaders in the face of igilov thugs.

      Given the great danger of drug terrorism, which is supported by the SGA, and is sending additional forces to Afghanistan to protect it, appropriate measures must be taken. Given the fact that more than 400 laboratories for the production of drugs operate in Afghanistan, then sent to the territory of Russia and Europe, it is worth thinking about the total destruction of the State Department's narcotic syndicate!

    Most likely the protection of their structures. And these structures are known. Some will cut, others (USA) to cover them. The Syrian version moves closer to the borders of Russia. Will the Afghan government ask for help from Russia, or will a creeping intervention of bearded people in black begin from there?

          So they ask not persistently, most likely they were told - take away the Americans and we will come, but these are my speculations.

    The main goal of the Merikos is how they declare "training and counseling" .. whom? Igilovites repainted in the MTR? ... or how to arrange another color revolution in the Central Asian republic?
