Afghanistan will not be able to support its army without US financial assistance.


We could not support our army for six months without the support of the United States and the capabilities of the United States.
Said Ghani.

Yes. Because we have no money
- the president of Afghanistan answered the clarifying question of the journalist that without the help of the USA the army of Afghanistan really cannot hold out for six months. At the same time, Ghani said that Afghanistan "does not need others (countries) to conduct its battles."

He also said that there are 21 international terrorist groups operating in the country.

As the TV channel notes, in 2017 there was a period when in just four months more than four thousand Afghan police and military personnel were injured, 2,5 thousands died. Ghani said that this situation will continue until “security of Afghanistan is ensured,” reports RIA News

      And if you take, or rather try, then this is the Taliban. And not the "government" of Afghanistan ..

        The Taliban destroyed drug trafficking, and under the mandalas, drug production jumped several times.

    So it is, the government chebureks themselves can’t cope with the protection of plantations of the national plant, but there are plenty of those who want to plantations on them. Yes and the United States is not in the way, they also earnestly earn money on those plants, or rather they own and wholesale farmers, why not a bit of income does not salivate

    Either advocate for the withdrawal of troops, then without the United States we will not survive. Well then ask in the United States or immediately surrender power to the Taliban and do not fool your head. The USA and the Taliban themselves do not want to fight, and the Afghan army is also of little use. So choose.

    The fact of the matter is that now no one has real power in Afghanistan. The president of the State Department’s hand dog. The Taliban are losing their strength in the fight against gaining power (again, not without the help of neighbors and the USA) ISIS. Separate tribes in the north. Gani without the help of the United States, it could repeat the fate of Najibullah. The CIA boasted that it had trapped us in Afghanistan because of the enormous expenditures on armaments, itself and the Afghans, and human losses. But it seems they themselves got into it.

    The power created by the stripes is based not on cultural-ideological ideology, but on the selfish interests and submission to the stripes. If the stripes leave Afghanistan and finance ceases to be sent, then I would not give a month to how much the official power will last. For the Taliban, the stripes came up with ideology more thoughtfully, with imagination, so it took root, and it really works. Striped ones succeed in talentedly destroying peoples and their culture, but not creating and preserving it.

    In other words, this is not the Afghan army. This is the US Army, or rather their mercenaries ...

    But shaw - does Afghanistan have an army? Probably the same parquet and parasite, as the Saudis. There are a lot of trunks - there is little sense. In a word, how many Persians and Arabs do not arm them - and it will not work to make them brave ...
