Taliban attacked an American military convoy in Afghanistan

31
From Afghanistan, reports have come that US troops have had to engage in clashes with the Taliban (* Taliban - a terrorist group banned in Russia). It is noteworthy that the battle broke out just a few days after the US announced that it had reached "consensus in negotiations with the Taliban leaders." It turns out that either the Taliban have so many leaders that some do not know about the consensus of others with the Americans, or the Americans themselves hastened to declare a consensus.




According to recent reports, both sides suffered losses. At the moment, the Pentagon confirms that they have lost two of their troops. Their names are not currently named.

According to some reports, the Taliban ambushed an American convoy who left the territory of one of the US military bases. As a result, the battle was imposed on the Americans by the Taliban.

The Taliban’s clash with US troops became known a few hours after the speech of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in which he declared "Washington’s priority task": to reduce losses among American soldiers.

Donald Trump spoke out a bit earlier in Afghanistan. He said that all American troops from Afghanistan would not be withdrawn, in any case, intelligence units would remain there. At the same time, Trump managed to compare Afghanistan with Harvard. According to Trump, the territory of Afghanistan can be considered "Harvard for various kinds of terrorists."

US President during a press conference with a Romanian counterpart:

That is why our intelligence will always be there.

Interesting, as whom? As a faculty? ..

      And the overwhelming technological advantage did not help the Americans. What were their drones doing at that moment?

          Everything can be. Although it is not clear why this convoy was going, it may turn out that just after the new crop ...

        We watched how peaceful dekhans graze sheep and fill irrigation ditches with water to irrigate poppy fields. After the drones flew away, the dekhane took out old AK-47, DShK and RPG-7 from under the floors and went to nightmare the invaders. So another day passed in Afghanistan, where the mattresses "stayed for a while" and they once again hinted that it was time to go home, like - "Yan.ki go home".

      Classics of the genre. At one time, they wrote a lot that the Yankees supposedly learned the lessons of the Soviet war of war in this country, and they sit at bases in cities, surrounded by weapons and drones, do not travel along mountain gorges, do not stretch communications, well, in short, such sages and elves. laughing

      In principle, if you throw away all the tinsel, both from their side and ours, then the presence of such territories is beneficial from the point of view of combat training of troops. I saw messages that Americans of 5 or more brigades passed through them, I think there will be enough instructors. We are not far behind either. Aviation, MTR, artillery, communications, fleet, who did not mention sorry. And it is worth a lot. Otherwise, it will be like the neighbors, the same Belarusians, and the competitions are won in army sports and generals with order levels, but what is behind them ....

    Again they kicked the general people ... Something doesn’t come out of them to conquer 70% of the territory of Afghanistan from the Taliban ... Oddly enough. even F-35s, Zumvolts and Teslamobiles do not help wassat

    The Americans are lucky that the Taliban and others in Afghanistan do not tremble. If there was a confrontation as with the Union, then the striped one would get a lot and the technological advantage would not help them. Even Tony Stark (Iron Man) is unlikely to help laughing

    Trump invited Russia to take part in the battles in Afghanistan. Probably in order to jump out of there, leaving the Russians alone with problems. Including Mujahideen, which the States are much easier to finance than their own army. No, really. We are no longer fools, unlike the Pentagon.

      Well, they do not fight badly at all, though they are foreign soldiers, and they themselves are very careful, without the support of fire weapons they will not climb into battle. I had to contact them "across the rivers".

        the ambush is such a thing, firepower only those that are with you at the first moment go, unless of course in the air who does not hang his own, but when he hangs they usually do not attack.

    Afghanistan can be considered "Harvard for all kinds of terrorists."
    Yes, wealthy terrorists send their children to study in Afghanistan ...
    But in general it’s strange, with the work that they established there, an outsider next to the base just won’t be there, and then there’s a whole ambush.

    either the Taliban have so many leaders that some do not know about the consensus of others with the Americans, or the Americans themselves hastened to declare a consensus.
    Rather, the second, which is more similar to the style of American politics. Let them rejoice that the Taliban do not hammer them so often, otherwise they would have collected things for a long time. And about Harvard, Trump made a slip on Freud.
