"It will be bad or very bad" - an American general on the possible situation in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of US troops

29

The American generals continue to discuss issues related to the withdrawal of the US military contingent from Afghanistan. The head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (the American version of the Chief of General Staff) Mark Milli also spoke out on this matter. The general was asked how he sees the future of Afghanistan after the withdrawal of American troops from there.


General Milli said that the situation in Afghanistan is so difficult that "he cannot give a positive answer to the question asked."

Mark Milli on the likely situation in Afghanistan after the US withdrawal:

Here I see only two options: it will be bad or very bad.

Recall that the Pentagon is going to withdraw its contingent (and according to various sources in Afghanistan there are now from 2,5 to 3,6 thousand American troops) by September 11, 2021 - by the 20th anniversary of the well-known events in the United States.

General Milli said that after the complete withdrawal of the American contingent, "the Afghan government and the Afghan armed forces may cease to exist."

Mark Milli:

A full-scale civil war and a humanitarian catastrophe could flare up there.

At the same time, the American general expressed the hope that "a trained, armed and equipped 350-strong army of Afghanistan will be able to resist the fall of Kabul and its seizure by terrorists."

Mark Milli:

In any case, the Afghan government will have to negotiate with the Taliban (a terrorist organization banned in Russia). Also, after the withdrawal of our troops, we will continue to monitor the situation in Afghanistan, including for terrorist activity. But the situation there is very difficult.

Earlier in China, it was stated that after the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, the militants may try to attack the eastern regions of the PRC through a narrow border corridor.

      Well, the American puppets will still get it from the Taliban, I saw how the Taliban were opening the bases of the pro-American Afghan forces ... a meat grinder.

      Najibula thought so too.
      Now this is a problem for the PRC, since the Chinese are beginning to dominate in Central Asia.

        Civilian - Najibula held out without any outside help - almost three years. Despite the fact that his opponents were helped by both the United States and Pakistan.

          Everyone knows how long he lasted, but the result was terrible.

      Replace Afghanistan with another, any country where the US "peacekeepers" are located, and the answer is the same.

    Interestingly, for as many years as the United States built schools, hospitals, institutes, factories in Afghanistan, or only poppy fields grew by leaps and bounds?

      Well, depending on whom we are talking about. The Americans perfectly “saw” the money that goes to support the group, profit from drug trafficking together with the Taliban, with whom they have been “fighting” so stubbornly for so many years, the latter also officially “put up” the United States for money for not touching them. And the people ... the same is not the USSR, which provided the country with enormous humanitarian aid, tried to pull it out of the era of feudalism as its Central Asian republics. Therefore, no one thinks about the people in this situation. All that the United States is afraid of now is that Russia or China will economically make Afghanistan their ally and that so many years of fussing near the Russian borders will be spent in vain. And, of course, what will have to look for where Americans still have to earn so much money.

        The Americans are excellent at "sawing" the money that goes to support the group.

        Earlier we wrote that the American military commanders strongly oppose leaving such .... sweet places!
        I immediately asked, why actually ???
        "white" is such a "sweet" product, many, many, do not want to break away from it.

        Yes, it seems, in plain text: There will be no drug traffic control - they will not have a 13th salary, no quarterly bonuses, no victories in capitalist competitions, no severance pay (parachutes). And it is very difficult to live on one salary or pension.

    If the Americans set fire to Afghanistan, there will be a war, although I very much doubt they will come out and leave heroin at the mercy of the Taliban.

      So they set it on fire a long time ago. Ever since then, when they began to grow Al Qaeda out of the few homeless people and supply it with weapons to counter the military contingent of the USSR, and now that it has grown up and the Taliban have risen in parallel, the mattresses sadly state the fact of their powerlessness and that everything will be bad or very bad. And where is it good? In my opinion, there is not a single example of the fact that after the intervention of mattresses in the affairs of any state there came peace and prosperity. Wherever an American soldier has set foot, only devastation, poverty and bloodshed reign.

    But no worse than before the US invasion. And of course, the CIA can lose on the sale of drugs, but most likely they will leave their watchers, tk. weapons for terrorists need to buy something (sorry for their hard-earned money) and finance on time.

    If the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan takes place, the Taliban will overthrow the current government.

    Because The United States will not be able to prevent this, it will try to lead.
    Most likely we will learn that the Taliban from the point of view of the United States are of different sorts. The Taliban of national unity, the Taliban for democracy, the Taliban movement against the Chinese occupation, and the rest of the terrorist pro-Chinese Taliban.

    Most likely, after the joint victory of the United States together with the Taliban over the authoritarian government of Afghanistan, the United States will start supporting various Taliban groups.

    I wonder how they will carry out logistics, for example, to deliver weapons to the right groups. Pakistan is dropped. So they will try to connect someone from the Asian republics of the CIS.

    The troops will leave, but the interests will remain,
    For example, so that China does not climb into Afghanistan, and as an eternal hot spot.

      Recently I watched a film (American) about the S-17, so they know how to praise themselves! So in this film for about 7-10 minutes there is a story about how the Americans delivered "humanitarian aid" before the invasion of Afghanistan. Believe it or not ... but they parachuted her from 8500 meters! The question is who got it? This is LOGISTICS! And in this film they "look" such heroes! What a night flight on a modern airplane ... HERO! And very seriously!

    As well as the Tajik border. Problems after the withdrawal will obviously increase, oddly enough to hear.

    a trained, armed and equipped 350 army of Afghanistan will be able to resist the fall of Kabul and its capture by terrorists

    At least half of this army will become terrorists. The other half will simply go to the villages.
