US senators rejected a new initiative to withdraw troops from Afghanistan

20

In the US Senate, a vote was taken on the proposed additional initiative for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. Senator Rand Paul took the lead. He proposed that President Trump's proposal for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan be consolidated in a defense policy bill.


In the event of such a consolidation, no one in the United States would have the opportunity to influence the withdrawal procedure. Based on Rand Paul’s initiative, US troops must leave Afghanistan within a year. At the same time, each of the military personnel will have to receive an additional payment in the amount of from 2,5 thousand dollars.

However, most senators decided that such a proposal could not be supported. So, 33 representatives of the upper house of the American Congress spoke in favor of the initiative, and 60 said no.

Those who voted against it said that Rand Paul’s initiative “is not the best way to put an end to the war in Afghanistan.”

But with renewed vigor in Congress, they are ready to discuss the possibility of imposing sanctions against Russia because Russian intelligence allegedly offered the Taliban (the Taliban, a terrorist group banned in the Russian Federation) money for an attack on American troops in Afghanistan. Sanctions are proposed to be introduced, as is often the case in the United States, based on media coverage. In this case, we are talking about an article in the NYT publication - the very one that Donald Trump called “fake news”. Apparently, in order to enhance the effect, the United States decided to publish the actual "rewrite" of that article in another publication - The Washington Post. Moreover, both publications - with reference to unnamed persons.

      Sooner or later, but the Americans will leave, the Taliban will come right away ... who, with their idea of ​​fixing the Orthodox Caliphate from the equator to the poles, will not be able to sit quietly within the borders of Afghanistan, they will have to bomb them again, and I would not really like it to become Russia should do it, but someone should do it ... so let the Yankees stay there for now!

        the Americans will leave, the Taliban will immediately come

        The Taliban did not leave there.
        with his idea a fix about the orthodox Caliphate from the equator to the poles

        You are clearly confused with ISIS. He really appeared recently and is fighting the Taliban. Before the entry of American troops into Afghanistan, the Taliban ruled there and especially did not interfere with any of the neighbors. True Buddha statue destroyed. Cant, but radical Muslims are as follows. You cannot write the Quran again.
        I wouldn’t really like Russia to do it, but someone should do it

        In addition to ISIS, there is no one to bomb there. Americans do not fight with them in Afghanistan. Allies, after all laughing .

          And unlike the Americans, the Taliban live on their land, and they have nowhere to go. And if they come to power, it means a strong party (unification), and to put and appoint puppet presidents to no purpose, because they need to be protected by foreign troops, as they are doing now, as was the case in the USSR. And the Taliban will not allow ISIS to live in Afghanistan.

          In principle, it is true, except that there is no one to fight with ISIS there except Russia. For the Taliban, these “barmalei” are the same occupiers as the mattresses, and they systematically and whenever possible reduce their number. If the mattresses leave Afghanistan, then the Taliban themselves will clean the Ishilovites to zero, which, according to some reports, number from 3 to 5 thousand. And yes, somehow it was not possible to get acquainted with the information that the United States in Afghanistan would strike at ISIS forces. More and more Talibans fall under the distribution, especially when they actively press the igiloid.

            So I wrote "bomb". The Taliban have no aviation and will not see through. So we have to bomb.

      yes, the mericatos put their paw on the drug for a long time and thoroughly., practically at the state level. (because the CIA is officially, albeit classified, dealing with the issue of drug trafficking to the United States .. which gives them additional bumps)

    Those who are AGAINST know something better that will bring PEACE to the land of Afghanistan ??? As always, because of the self-confident wasps / L \ s, quite different ....
    One way to Afghanistan, they will return to their former state, consider the Middle Ages .... the dermocracy did not smell like that and will not be in the future.

        The Taliban is also not sugar, but this is a small-town plot! They did not show global ambitions.

    Russia is no longer the country to be worried like it or someone doesn’t like it. We have everything to bend our line, and in light of new events, it turns out we need to have a "vigorous bonbu."

    The Pentagon OFFICIALLY confirmed that they did not have any evidence of Russian payment for the death of their soldiers. (Merikatos)

      This is absolutely not important for them! But what, were there any grounds for imposing sanctions "for the Skripals"? The investigation was launched “on the brakes”, the lumberjack “Therese has been gone for a long time, the Squeakers themselves have disappeared into the air (they could have seriously“ dissolved ”as unnecessary) - and the sanctions? Justice? No, they didn’t hear ...

        The topic voiced by you is not news for me. My post was on a slightly different plane - the Pentagon and the Senate of one country. One says no (the Pentagon); the second says yes. The utter discord and lawlessness in the meritosia.

        This is the whole game of the Americans, to spin the media on the enemy, according to the “Tuzik Fas!” Scheme, then the Senate and the Congress are connected, the sanctions that need to be carried out are put on the agenda, you can even introduce an idiotic sanction “Russia is to blame for the fact that the day is changing at night, "and believe me, they will accept such a sanction. And the president will sign. You see, the idea of ​​withdrawing troops from Afghanistan put forward by Trump is blocked by the Senate. Nick’s power system is so built and worked out that you can “ban” any decision, but promote any idiotic one. That’s the whole point of American democracy, about freedom we’ll be silent, who does not believe can go to Seattle at least and see.

    They didn’t want to make a decision on the withdrawal today, tomorrow they will run themselves, bearing losses. Now it’s more clear about the stuffing about the alleged “treaty” of Russian military intelligence with the Taliban.
    with renewed vigor in Congress ready to discuss the possibility of imposing sanctions against Russia
    Well, don’t feed it with bread, but let it strike an additional blow to Russia. The country itself is rebelling, the Democrats are completely crazy, but Russia cannot be forgotten. This is not even a complete loss of a sense of proportion, but an epidemic of violent insanity with uncontrollable aggressiveness.
