The US military told about the damage caused to the Taliban

US military and security forces in Afghanistan have destroyed a number of drug labs belonging to the Taliban militants (banned in Russia) as a result of joint operations, Pentagon spokesman Michael Andrews said.

Since the start of the campaign three weeks ago, the 25 drug laboratories of the Taliban have been eliminated as a result of joint operations by the US and the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces.
said a military official RIA News.

According to him, “the elimination of laboratories caused damage to drug dealers in the amount of almost 80 million dollars, and also deprived them of direct income in the amount of 16 million dollars.”

At the same time, Andrews declined to comment on the possibility of joint actions by the United States and Russia to combat the Afghan drug threat.

I advise you to contact the State Department regarding comments on a potential diplomatic partnership with Russia in Afghanistan,
he said.

The State Department has not yet answered the relevant question to the agency.

Earlier, during a press conference, Vladimir Putin said that Russia, together with the Afghan government, the United States and other interested parties, "is ready to work to overcome these difficulties."

              Why think? The media will serve everything in the right way and with the right ideological sauce. And reading between the lines is too lazy ...

    probably a typo - they didn’t eliminate it, but built it ... and they intend to add another division to the contingent for their protection ... what kind of US operations are they talking about, if there’s not a single foot for the territory of the bases?

    Most likely they took away the nonsense, and the noise for the screen. They had never before destroyed either the laboratories or the poppy fields themselves. And the excessively acquired "Seized" was transported by air to Europe mainly, and then to itself.

    There is a thought not groundless. The USSR then tried to do what is now in Syria .. Drug trafficking seems to be known to everyone in the United States, and the poor cannot prevent them. Even roadblocks are built in the fields.

    Mattress workers destroyed a number of Taliban drug laboratories in order to have fewer competitors for striped drug laboratories. Everything is logical and down to earth.

    As far as I know, the Taliban also fights against drug addiction. It is forbidden to grow opium poppy. Of all the thugs, the more negotiable.

      Not only against drug addiction, they are also against television, visual arts, alcohol, computers, the Internet, chess, white shoes and much more.
