In the US, they write about the readiness to start reducing the contingent in Afghanistan

29
In the US media, it is said that, against the background of the decision taken on the withdrawal of troops from Syria, the White House is going to take the path of reducing its military presence in Afghanistan. It is noteworthy that literally on the eve - during a press conference - the Russian president drew attention to the fact that Washington often announces the withdrawal of its troops from the same Afghanistan, but the troops continue to remain there.


In the US, they write about the readiness to start reducing the contingent in Afghanistan


About readiness to begin a significant reduction in the military contingent in Afghanistan, citing sources, writes WSJ (Wall Street Journal).

It is noted that the start of the withdrawal of the main part of the US contingent is planned for January 2019.

What is the US military presence in Afghanistan at this hour? According to various estimates, the number of US troops in this country ranges from 13 to 15 thousand people. It is worth noting that after Donald Trump's arrival at the White House, the number of American soldiers in Afghanistan grew by more than a third. In the last months of Barack Obama’s presidency, this number was about 10 thousands of soldiers and officers. At the same time, in Washington, it was more and more difficult to pick up words about the main goal pursued by the United States in Afghanistan, having a significant military contingent there.

Recall that the entry of American troops into Afghanistan was carried out after the events of September 11 2001 in the States. The official reason is the fight against international terrorism. However, over the years of the US presence in Afghanistan with terrorism, not only was it not finished there, but quite the opposite - the number of various types of groups only increased. So, in the north of Afghanistan militants of ISIL were entrenched (* it is forbidden in the Russian Federation). If the Americans themselves control something, the territory around their military bases, as well as Afghan heroin streams.

      Another Chinese promise in a Merikatos manner.

      Hardly. Most likely, the "tired optimist" is right - the Hegemon is torn, carry the next one (c)

          Afghan is used as a base for training terrorists of various kinds, as well as for the cultivation and distribution of drugs, primarily the distribution they need in Russia. That's just Russia is coping well with both problems, and therefore such a base does not justify itself - from and closing with the withdrawal of the contingent.

      On the contrary! In view of the fact that the Taliban have begun to work too well in this direction, the Americans are more and more inclined to think about the necessity of carrying out Operation Decisive Retreat to the song of Ta-Tu, "They will not catch us."

    It is correctly noted that Obama was still "withdrawing" his own people from Afghanistan, and in no way did he, Trump has also stated this not for the first time. On the other hand, it is not in vain that the Americans are whispering about something with the Taliban. Wait and see.

    The next, Christmas and New Year's reports of the army after the adoption of the annual budget, the enemy is defeated, therefore the plans are "Yankee Go Home". But the holidays will pass, and yet another hidden enemy of democracy will raise its head. Considering that nothing has been done to withdraw the troops, it will be necessary to strengthen and increase the contingents of troops outside America's borders, as a result of calls for more funding for world robbery.

    Three unrelated news:
    1) Penguins flee from Syria.
    2) The Pentagon Commander Metis, almost knee-deep, asked everyone who could help in Afghanistan. The passage was especially epic that the same war has been going on there for 40 years, I forgot to say that 40 years ago the United States unleashed it and trained them from whom they snatched it.
    3) Metis kick fired

    So, in the north of Afghanistan, ISIS fighters entrenched (* prohibited in the Russian Federation). The Americans themselves, if they control something, then the territory around their military bases, as well as the Afghan heroin flows.
    Actually, now the Americans and the NATO contingent are acting within the framework of the new military doctrine - to gradually transfer powers to the created Afghan pro-government forces while reducing the participation of foreign contingents. So far, they have succeeded, albeit with difficulty.

      This is the same as going into someone else's house, spoiling in all corners and leaving the scoop and broom for cleaning, to leave. We wouldn’t go at all - it would be cleaner.

    Sadly, the Americans will not leave Afghanistan. This small piece of land at the end of the world allows them to earn money on drugs for covert operations. It allows you to control drug trafficking and owns such an instrument that can bring to naught any nation.
