Afghan general called "betrayal" US plans to replace Kalashnikovs


Takat said Washington’s actions are "a betrayal and a crime against the people of Afghanistan."

During the war, we saw American weapons in the case - and it simply does not work. It can not be compared with the Russian
- he said in an interview with Sputnik

According to the general, the Afghan military has become accustomed to handling Ak-47, these machines "are in every Afghan family," especially in dangerous areas. Without them, many people simply can not defend themselves against terrorists, I'm sure Takat.



According to the representative of the Ministry of Defense of the country, General Davlat Vaziri, the Afghan military will continue to use Russian-made weapons.

When Russian weapons become useless, and their ammunition runs out, they will replace them with American ones. In the meantime, it works, we will use it

        Under the Americans, the number of weapons among the population decreased several times. 1 automatic machine per family is more accurate. Moreover, this applies to territories not controlled, or rather poorly controlled by the Americans.

          Well you are naive ... laughing
          And in the basements, attics, gardens ... did not look ?!
          Such a people as Afghans (all nations), with such a history, are more likely to die than surrender their weapons ... especially since the surrender of weapons there means either slavery or death.

            You are not familiar with the situation in Afghanistan after the American invasion. Yes, at the beginning of the invasion, for example, residents of the village of Chamkani had several howitzers, half a dozen Stinger, almost every man had a rifle or AK-47. But at present there is 1 Kalashnikov per family. Americans bought the rest. Under the Communists, one worker could easily feed his family, now, if no one works abroad, you can die of starvation.

In EVERY city of Russia and not only Russia there are people who owe their life to Kalash .... And Afghanistan us already kindly recalls, no matter what ...

        Duc, it seems like they did not invite them. The mattresses themselves crammed into the Taliban after 11.09.2001/XNUMX/XNUMX. They have such a manner, they either snuggle into Iraq, then drive into Afghanistan under a far-fetched pretext, and then they must be smoked for decades.

      Real betrayal

      Betrayal of whom? The United States is moving IS units to Afghanistan for war against both government troops and the Taliban. The United States will weaken both of them for the subsequent deployment of militants along the borders of the former USSR. The USA has no allies and friends. For them, enemies are everything, but in friends only their own interests.

    Dustiness, lack of real conditions for service, not trained personnel and American weapons? In reality, Afghanistan is losing its potential for the purchase of weapons from the United States. Of course, Afghans will not refuse supplies at the expense of the United States, but the century of American weapons in the hands of the Afghan is short.

    At one time, they taught the locals one tactical trick ... In about two kilometers, a hundred people let out a couple of stores holding a vending machine at an angle to the horizon ... As a result, it rains on the column ... And it’s completely not clear where ...

      They invented or told who? Yes, and rain, probably a solid wall, rain ... lol

    It is convenient to use American rifles to fight, sitting in air-conditioned dugouts and air filters, and moving in limousines with leather interiors, while blowing off dust particles from weapons, and protecting it from water, dirt and accidental blows.

    Yes ... You can still shoot videos as much as you like by comparing AK with M16 (Yandex already produces 3 million results), and prove something ... Although before that everyone said that there were any "moderate terrorists" at any end world, armed with the Americans, at the earliest opportunity, change the M16 to AK ... But so openly no one has yet sent amers.

    "According to the general, the Afghan military is already used to handling the Ak-47."
    Where does he get them from?
    In the USSR (Russia), the AK-47 has not been produced since 1959 (if I'm not mistaken).
    Or are they all called AK 47 in a wretched western habit? what

    When Russian weapons become useless, and their ammunition runs out, they will replace them with American ones. In the meantime, it works, we will use it

    And it will serve forever yes

    Every year, Afghanistan asks for help from Russia with weapons and ammunition. Previously, Americans gave money and bought new ammunition from us. Now we can give away what is to be disposed of. Only after Syria, this is where the PDMs are actually being sent for write-offs.

    Takat says Washington’s actions are “betrayal and crime against the people of Afghanistan.”

    You say it right, Takat. The question is - why the hell are you working for Washington? Has he ever betrayed his sixes?

    Well done, this general, but only again, like all sober thoughts, he expresses only when he is retired!

    And who said that Kalash would be banned from using? They will just make us buy American weapons. America needs to sell weapons, and reliability and someone else's life is the tenth thing. Buy M4, and use what you want!

    By that time, the country of America will not be until Kalash becomes worthless.
