The retired US general suggested "tough" to respond to the "conspiracy" of Russia and the Taliban

The United States will need to be given a "tough answer" in the event that a collusion between Russia and the Taliban radical Afghan movement (banned in Russia) is proved. This was stated by the former commander of the US and NATO international forces in Afghanistan, a retired general John Nicholson.


In a conversation with The Washington Post, a retired general said that during command in Afghanistan from 2016 to 2018, he was confronted with "evidence" of Taliban cooperation with Russia. According to him, Moscow through Tajikistan supplied the Taliban with small arms weapon and ammunition, and also funded the movement. However, Nicholson noted, Russia refused to supply anti-aircraft missiles to the Taliban.

At the same time, the general said, if information is confirmed that Russian military intelligence allegedly secretly offered to pay the Taliban for the killing of the US military, then the US needs to "clearly and unequivocally" respond to this.

If true, this is both a reckless miscalculation and a big mistake on the part of the Russians and the Taliban. History shows that such mistakes and miscalculations often lead to war

- declared the general.

In response to the actions of Russia, the United States needs to stop the withdrawal of American troops from Germany, as well as from Afghanistan, as well as condemn the actions of Russia, stressing that they undermine any chances of improving relations and cooperation.

Recall that on June 26, the American edition of The New York Times accused Russian military intelligence of conspiring with the Taliban. According to the American intelligence services, the Russians secretly offered to pay for the killing of American troops in Afghanistan.

    Ours also need the type: "the United States created, finances, supplies the ISIL." Arrange a public discussion on this topic, articles in newspapers. Convene a conference on this topic at the UN. And I would ask this talkative American general for Afghan heroin, who protects the CIA (open secret).

      It would be good. But our people do not want to aggravate the situation. While finances are ruled by Pin Doss and under Pin Dos we are in a dependent position. This is the "system of levers" that prevents us from developing.

      It can be even simpler: impose sanctions, for example, to supply our titanium, which is used for their aircraft construction, because the United States used to supply the Taliban with weapons and MANPADS when ours were in Afghanistan. And the CIA paid for the heads of our troops.

    Well, T.V.A.R. maybe I forgot, so I have to recall how the instructors of this crappy usa taught the jackal to kill Russian guys in the last war? How much and what rates then existed?
    And now, is there really no price for terrorist attacks by the same jackals paid by these ...... supposedly civilized ....
    Sorry, but I have a solid foul, three-story.

      And who taught Koreans and Chinese in 1950?
      Who trained the Vietnamese in 1967?


      On a much larger scale, and they killed the American guys. The Soviet Union was the first to train the enemies of America, and it supplied weapons to North Korea, China and North Vietnam, and sent its fliers to the Korean and Vietnamese skies, and instructors, and air defense crews, and thousands of MiGs, and thousands of T-54s.

          There were UN troops in Korea, in Vietnam there was an agreement with South Vietnam.

          And in Afghanistan, the Soviet killed the president of Afghanistan and carried out a military invasion.

    The United States will need to give a "tough response" if it is proven that Russia is in collusion with the Afghan radical Taliban (banned in Russia).

    And, if the fact of the US supplying ISIS with weapons in Syria is not a reason for a “tough answer”, then from what celery the facts in Afghanistan should turn the idea of ​​international collusion? belay

    The Taliban were wearing caps with earflaps and balalaikas? And the Russian special services directly under him taught them to train the martyr bears in order to use them against the American army.

    Let them begin with a harsh response to their own blacks and other "activists" in their own country. Otherwise, an incident may happen, they will get carried away with the struggle with Russia in Afghanistan and Europe, and profuse their own state. So there will be nowhere to return. And everything goes to that. This will be the number. laughing

    The story told by The New York Times is nonsense that lacks elements of logic and common sense. Why should Russian spies give the Taliban a monetary reward for the scalp of the US Army in Afghanistan, if the Taliban are so motivated to kill Americans, and they have been doing this with great enthusiasm for many years?
