Pentagon: The military to be transferred to Afghanistan will be located near the front line

11
The transfer of additional units of the US armed forces to Afghanistan has begun. Recall that under the previous president of the United States, Barack Obama, the number of US troops changed to a decrease to the last presidential months. After Donald Trump came to power in Washington, a statement was made that the continent "must be increased."


The commander of the US contingent and the entire NATO mission in Afghanistan, General John Nicholson, as the newspaper writes Stars and Stripes, met the first division of "additional forces" at the airport of Kabul. We are talking about a special unit that will be responsible for “advising and assisting the ordinary armed forces stationed in Afghan territory”.

In the near future, about 800 troops will be transferred from the USA to Afghanistan. In total, the contingent will grow on 4 thousand American military.

Pentagon: The military to be transferred to Afghanistan will be located near the front line


It was announced that American military instructors would be in "close proximity to the front line for operational assistance to general-purpose groups." If we consider that in recent years, the territories controlled by terrorists in Afghanistan have begun to expand again, it is not entirely clear where the front line is in this country - fighting is conducted in different provinces of Afghanistan.

It is known that today there are up to 11 thousand US troops in Afghanistan.

      Good afternoon, Alexander! hi
      It has been announced that US military instructors will be in "close proximity to the front line for operational assistance to combined arms groups"

      Is there a front line in Afghanistan? How interesting! And who, interestingly, is there fighting with military units against amers?

        That is, they recognized all the same that they are hiding in the bases.

        I’m also looking, either the townsfolk are being given brains, or such "professionals" are Amerov’s generals. Yes, they "smoke" will be grass, along with the barmaley.

        But what about? I went to a club in a neighboring village, here you have the front line. You sit at home, wherever you go - "not far from the front line."

    Soon they will invade Turkestan, and they’re getting ready ... Both for yourself and for the preparation of cannon fodder you need to expand the staff of instructors ...

    For some reason, I have not heard about the Afghan mujahideen from MANPADS, the American helicopters-planes do not fall. And with the provision of bases, the Americans somehow resolved the issue. This is wrong!

    The scope of tasks is not great. 1. Preservation and expansion of functioning opium poppy plantations. 2. Its collection, storage, processing and transportation to the wholesaler. 3. The creation of militant formations near the borders with the CIS, for destabilization and constant threats of invasion.
