Chinese media: the US created an anti-Chinese and anti-Russian foothold in Afghanistan

23

A major Chinese publication Sina comes out with a publication dedicated to the decision of the US authorities to withdraw American troops from Afghanistan. The Chinese author writes that the 20-year-old war with the participation of the Americans in Afghanistan may end - Biden promised a withdrawal by September 11 this year. At the same time, on the pages of the Chinese media, they are asking the question, what was the true purpose of the American invasion of Afghanistan and what results did the United States achieve?


From the article:

On September 11, 2001, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center collapsed in New York. The Americans blamed Al-Qaeda for this (* a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation) and demanded the extradition of Osama bin Laden. The terrorist was not extradited to them, after which the UN Security Council responded positively to the US request for a military operation. Tens of thousands of US and NATO soldiers entered Afghanistan and began bombing its territory.

The Chinese media notes that the fight against terrorism eventually turned into a screen for Washington's real goals. The author in the Sina publication believes that US troops were sent into Afghanistan with the aim of further influencing two countries at once - China and Russia.

From the material:

Revenge against terrorists is just a cover. This is not why they brought in troops. The United States understood that it was possible to influence the processes in China from Afghanistan, and through the Central Asian "underbelly" - and on the Russian "bear". The United States created an anti-Chinese and anti-Russian foothold from which it could manage processes throughout Central Asia.

It is noted that the United States waged a truly active war for only a few months.

From the article:

Then the Americans in Afghanistan faced the same thing that the USSR had previously faced - guerrilla warfare. They never managed to defeat the Taliban (* The Taliban is a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation).

It is noted that the United States in recent years clearly did not want to fight terrorists, solving its own tasks to support the bridgehead in Central Asia, but the militants "interfered in American plans."

The Chinese author writes that at one of the stages, the United States had to transfer its PMCs to Afghanistan. And the total cost of the war since 2001 has been approaching $ 800 billion - according to official figures, and exceeded $ 2 trillion - according to independent experts.

          Religious fanaticism flourishes there - it can only be interrupted by another religion or ideology.)))
          It is useless to appeal to common sense.

    The Chinese would have to take the log out of their eyes, otherwise they have clearly forgotten how the madzhoheds against the Soviet army in Afghanistan were trained and armed!

    Somehow, the Chinese forgot their help to the Mujahideen. Until the Grads put things in order in the narrow strip of the Soviet (Tajikistan-GBAO) -Afghan-Chinese border.

    Trump said that "5-7 trillion. Buried in the sand of Afghanistan." Although I am sure that the mattresses there periodically paid for their safety to the local Mujahideen. And PMCs ate a lot of money (escorting convoys, etc.).

    And how much profit did you get unofficially on drugs? After all, the ISIS were financed and armed with this money.

    For the sake of completeness, it would not hurt to find out who actually staged the revolutions in Afghanistan and Iran almost simultaneously. Although this may not be directly related to the US mission in Afghanistan, questions remain.

    Afghans have something like a proverb:
    We cannot be conquered, but we can be bought .............
    Afghans are very fond of bargaining, and now let's talk when China comes to Afghanistan with its money and how all American anti-Chinese attempts will look like

    In China, analysts have just come to terms. I wrote to some comrades a year ago that China and Iran and Russia will have a headache with the withdrawal of the Americans from Afghanistan. But as usual, apart from the Yankees, get out of Afghanistan, commentators could only write, you see, they were not friends with geography. And if someone thinks that the Taliban will take power with the departure of the Americans, I very much doubt it. On the horizon looms a more formidable enemy, namely Ishil, they have already worked out tactics. interception of the opponents' initiative.

    Another nonsense! In fact, the Chinese fought against the USSR in Afghanistan. And they killed many of our soldiers and officers. With its military assistance to the Afghan mujahideen.

    There is no Alkaeda and never existed. No one knew or heard of her even once, until the state members threw in this fictional media scarecrow. There is no material and documentary evidence at all, there is not and there was not a single real militant who identified himself as a member of this organization. Farce and lies, as with a test tube, with chemical weapons.
