US Secretary of State: We will make sure Afghanistan is never used to attack America again

71

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken made a statement regarding the US military presence in Afghanistan. At the same time, a number of sources claim that he arrived in Kabul for several hours - the first of the representatives of the new American administration. There is no official confirmation of the data on Blinken's visit to the Afghan capital yet, but there are reports on his statements about the further presence of US troops in Afghanistan.


According to the head of the US State Department, in order for American troops to leave Afghanistan this year (and on the basis of the deal, the withdrawal should be carried out before May 1), "coordination with partners is necessary, and a dialogue with the UN leadership is also needed." Since when have consultations in the UN format become important for the US authorities? ..

As Voennoye Obozreniye previously reported, the United States faces logistical difficulties in withdrawing its contingent from Afghanistan. The most optimal option - through Pakistan - is now not considered due to the position of Islamabad. Therefore, among the issues discussed by the American delegation with Indian colleagues in New Delhi was the question of providing India with a corridor for the American aviation.

According to some reports, Afghan Foreign Minister Mohammad Hanif Atmar was also invited to discuss this issue in New Delhi.

The US State Department makes it clear that they will not have time to withdraw their troops from Afghanistan by May 1. At the same time, the United States, apparently, cannot decide how much servicemen they "need" to leave on Afghan territory. One of the reasons for this "uncertainty" is the deal with the Taliban terrorist movement (* banned in the Russian Federation), which presupposes a complete withdrawal, moreover, before May 1. And Washington clearly does not want to withdraw troops completely, fearing to lose control, including over the well-known established criminal business.

Anthony Blinken during a meeting with NATO officials:

We will make sure that Afghanistan is never again used to attack America and our allies.

At the same time, it was noted that not only the American military, but also the military personnel of other NATO countries remain in Afghanistan. For example, Germany, clearly awaiting the first step from the United States, cannot decide what to do with its contingent in Afghanistan.

    Somehow I don’t remember that Afghanistan would ever declare war on the states or other NATO members, not to mention such state allies as Japan or South Korea.

      Well, judging by Blinkin's words, they have American territory wherever their military is. In general, it would not be bad for Blinkin to buy a globe ...

        Antosha Blinkin means that "live whoever you want," and the United States is dumping. This means that through the UN they will allow China to take control of Afghanistan.
        And the PRC will stupidly populate the Chinese there, and force the locals like the Uighurs.

          Why do they determine who is good who is bad-naglo-Saxons? And they also practice - they invade the country, and on another continent to protect, say, gophers in one of the states of the sga, and the indigenous population of this country, who does not agree with the invasion, is taken out of the law and equated to terrorists. Then you still need to take a closer look who is the main terrorist on Earth!

            Who is stronger is the one who determines. Whom they listen to, or rather so. And s - they are more likely not terrorists, but simply robbers, and very arrogant. This is what they call success: the more impudent and greedy, the more successful. The lower the world rating of the United States falls, the more impudent they will be, because if you show weakness, they will bend until they break. And without war, they will not want to lose their "Great Hegemony". Without a big war.

      Which of the states bordering on Afghanistan is an ally of the SGA:
      Iran? Pakistan? Turkmenistan? Uzbekistan? Tajikistan? China?
      India has a conditionally controlled border only over the disputed state of Jammu and Kashmir.
      Which of the above states considers the SGA to be its ally - let it openly declare, arrange the so-called coming-out - it will be interesting (what if it will be Iran) lol

      To accurately quote the American's words, it looks like this: “Leaving tactical decisions aside, we are united with our NATO allies to responsibly end this conflict and remove our troops from the dangerous path, just as we are collectively determined to ensure that Afghanistan has never again become a safe haven for terrorists who could threaten the United States or our allies, ”

      Well, my friend, you completely forgot. Let me remind you. It was Afghanistan that attacked the Anglo-Saxons in the 18-19th century. It was Afghanistan that started the war in Iraq and Syria. It is Afghanistan that is digging a canal through Canada to Antarctica in the hope that penguins from Antarctica will move to the North Pole. And everywhere Afghanistan, Afghanistan.
      Yes, I forgot, there is also China and Russia, which, like Afghanistan, do not allow the poor Anglo-Saxons to sleep well ...

      They will never leave Afghanistan ... as long as they, like in Iraq, will not be muddled with MLRS and mortars - they will not even think about it. And the chatter about "not having time" is the background.
      If we completely exclude the absence of not only an attack, but even a hint of such in the future, it is necessary to arrange the genocide of everyone and everything in Afghanistan, but they will not have enough bombs for that. Although you can expect anything from them.
      Shouts about democracy and the rights of democrats will write off everything and justify everything.

            Everyone understands perfectly well that the weak Biden was appointed president, because Kamala Harris, after Trump, would never have been elected president. In a maximum of six months, Biden will retire on an honorary retirement in the rank of president with all the pleasing benefits, and Harris will continue his work as president without a vote and without noise.

      Yes, they got involved there, having spent about a trillion dollars over 16 years, without creating any infrastructure in Afghanistan, but on the contrary destroying the latter, putting the country on the needle, the United States now does not know what to do.
      In 1984, Afghanistan supplied about 60% of its heroin to the United States and about 80% to Europe. In 1979, the number of heroin addicts in Pakistan was about zero, and already in 1980 there were about 5000 people, and in 1985 the figure was 1,3 million. The level of addiction was so high that the ONE called it "shocking." This is where American democracy is leading.

    Do not scold Blinkin too much. This is a statement for US citizens and gay Europeans with already formatted brains. They gobbled up LGBT people, gobbled up BLM, gobbled up harassment - and even more so, they will devour the threat of Afghanistan. Are the words beautiful? Correct by ear? His listeners have no idea where Afghanistan is, or they do, but they also represent the "Afghan threat." Well, as it should be for politics, false statements cover up real deeds: while poppy is growing in Afghanistan and American heroin is being made, their troops will be there. Right here they said: RZSO is a good tool, nothing else will help.

    It is hard to believe that they will remove their bases from Afghanistan. Here they have relatively greenhouse conditions for running in their unmanned combat vehicles. Even if someone is bombed by mistake, they will not receive a serious response for this.

He won't say anything bad about us anymore. I also foresee that Russia will continue to be connected to international payment systems and firmly integrated into the world civilization space for years to come.
