The United States announced a request from the European allies to postpone the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan

54

Materials appeared in the American press, which speak of a request to Washington from European countries. This request is connected with the presence of troops in Afghanistan.


The WSJ reports that the US coalition allies have asked Washington to postpone the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. It is argued that the European contingents allegedly cannot be promptly withdrawn at the same time as the United States contingent, since they do not have time to organize logistics.

Recall that the American authorities intend to begin a phased withdrawal of their contingent from this month, and complete by September 11. Such plans were outlined in the American administration. At the same time, the Americans deployed several hundred more of their troops to Afghanistan, saying that "this will ensure a proper withdrawal for the contingent in the country, both the United States and its coalition allies."

In this regard, the very request from the same European allies raises questions. If the United States promised a withdrawal by September 11, then why does the German letter referred to by the American press say about a request to postpone the withdrawal until July 18?

It is noteworthy that the WSJ also indicates the answer to the German request. This response states that the United States "at the request of the allies is ready to postpone the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan for two or more weeks."

One gets the impression that a certain bargaining continues around the presence of the NATO contingent in Afghanistan, and the same Americans are trying to find the most favorable conditions for themselves. At the same time, the search for the optimal route for withdrawing the contingent is carried out. One of the previously discussed options is the withdrawal through Indian airspace to one of the US bases in the Middle East, followed by dispersal to other US military bases.

    How reluctant to leave and thereby admit his military shame. At first, for a "successful and safe" withdrawal, they brought in an additional several hundred and drove in strategic bombers (?). Now there is a reason to slow down, tk. European "allies" are tearfully asking for a delay. And besides that, how can one part with the plantations, which made it possible for the CIA to purchase weapons for international terrorists without resorting to spending the budget and at the same time poisoning Europe and neighboring countries with drugs.

      There is no American defeat in Afghanistan. There is a systematic work. At first, they failed to use the Taliban to protect their interests in the region in the 90s. Then the Americans bombed the Taliban and entered Afghanistan.

      All tactical operational tasks have been solved in 20 years. The drug market is under the control of the CIA, from Bagram you can follow the Russians, Chinese, Iranians. The American military-industrial complex has received billions of dollars in orders. Firms involved in logistics supplies too. The economy of war. The war is turbulent - the grandmas are spinning.

      Where, excuse me, is the defeat? Oh, they are leaving, yes. So they surrender the country to the Taliban. Was it in vain that the United States nursed them for ten years? They were negotiating, an embassy was opened for them in Qatar. The day before yesterday the Taliban took the city of Baghlan. Look at the map where it is. North of the country. 20 years ago, the territory of the Northern Alliance and the Taliban were not close there. Yes, even 10 years ago. Here is the result of the American presence. The ruler shows how much from Baglan to the Tajik border.

      The American army will leave, and then these will be our problems. They came, solved their questions, left, leaving us with a bunch of strongly religious psychos with weapons at our side. I would like to ask a respected expert - is it really a defeat?

      In fact, sooner or later it will become a problem for the country. I'm talking about the level of military analytics and the lack of serious think tanks capable of giving a clear analysis and a real picture of the situation in a particular region. Not to say what someone really wants to hear, but to tell what we will actually face in the very near future.

      And most importantly, how to prepare for this and take action.

      Not mine ... From the vastness of the Internet.

        And for most users, your message is more than enough. Nicely painted. Only you, and we, together with you, and other "multi-literate" analysts will not be able to predict how all this presence may turn out. Only one thing is clear and understandable, in the built world economic system, Afghanistan is destined for the place of “Columbia of the Eastern Hemisphere”. Prepared without Russian participation. Without our permission or even notice. We can only conclude: does Russia need this problem in the underbelly and what role is prepared for Tajikistan in this?

        How can you prepare for death? Spread some straw? It is necessary not to prepare for events, but to prevent their occurrence. Specifically? We need to sort out the “Tajik buffer”, what good can it give us. These Ravshans and Dzhamshuts suit only certain Russian structures, as a semi-free labor force. And the drugs entering the Russian Federation also have certain roots.
        I understand everything: you can use electronic money transfers, you can remotely conclude business agreements, but the transportation of goods via the Internet has not yet been mastered.
        And our government can only prepare for the upcoming parliamentary elections. Or do you think that some Potanin or Usmanovs are interested in the problems of Russia in the area of ​​the Tajik border and curious about the fate of the 201st military base? Yes, they don't care. The country is only interested in what makes a profit.

          With base 201, nothing will happen, except that it will require strengthening of border intelligence and electronic warfare, since before the CIA exported drugs through its WB, and the Taliban will not have such capabilities (except that the United States will take part in drug logistics with them), but one thing it is clear that the number of drugs in our direction will increase markedly. In addition, the border will need to be placed on a powerful electronic lock, including autonomous shock drones operating in automatic mode.

          How is it possible to control the flow of drugs through Kazakhstan? The border is almost 1500 km., Continuous steppes. Astrakhan is practically, in power structures, under Kazakhs and Dagestanis. The Americans have built the logistics of transporting and importing drugs, and therefore they are leaving.

      The United States has no allies, only sixes and bedding! Poor Afghanistan, the only period when this country lived more or less with dignity and fluttered was the period when a limited Soviet contingent was in it!

        Under the royal regime, it was not bad there. And by the way, the USSR from the mid 20
        century provided massive assistance to Afghanistan in all areas. Royal Afghanistan was considered a friend of the USSR. Our specialists, teachers, geologists, archeologists worked there. The whole Polytechnic Institute was built in the 60s. Houses and industrial facilities were built. And the attitude towards the Soviets was the most positive. If it were not for Daoud's coup, and then the PDPA came to power, it is difficult to say how Afghanistan would have developed in the future. I still do not understand the story of the storming of Amin's palace. On the military side, it was carried out brilliantly, but on the moral and political side, they acted, frankly, meanly. They killed a man who himself invited our troops, who was a great communist and a friend of the USSR compared to Karmal. Anyway, later it was necessary to call to power Najibullah, who was originally from the Amin faction.

    Not negotiable, definitely. Under any pretext concocted, they will remain, even pay their "opponents" to shoot at them. They did not climb in order to leave without thoroughly robbing the country's natural resources. This is a ready-made testing ground for them for testing various, even prohibited, weapons. Plus give up your poppy plantations? Nah, Americans are not stupid. Surely they will leave some reserves all the same.

            Generally they say that the biggest profits are on guns and drugs. Well, maybe not the biggest, but the money there is not small, that's for sure. For a state like the United States, this is of course a penny, but the United States fights even for smaller amounts.

            In fact, people who are associated with Afghan in the United States, the army, PMCs, intelligence have the opportunity to earn huge sums for themselves personally.

            For the United States as a state, this is not so much a financial topic as a tool.
            Funding for CIA Operations:
            1. Not tracked
            2. Self-financing

            Undermining of statehood in those countries where drugs are supplied, including transit countries.

            Creation of channels of interaction, agent channels, agents of influence.
            If there are drug contacts with criminals, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, politicians.
            Then you can talk with them not only about deliveries, but also eliminate any person, arrange riots on social issues or national - religious or even stir up a coup.

            Even if the United States withdraws from Afghanistan, it will try to maintain control over drug trafficking.

            It is beneficial and necessary for them.

                Well, actually, the legalization of drugs is just a trick of globalists and democrats.
                Then do not be confused to declare yourself as white and fluffy and be them in fact, do you seriously think that democrats will act according to democratic principles both at home and abroad, without double standards? )))

                Again, making money on a national scale is quite different and on a different scale.

                Drug trafficking from Afghanistan is not about making money, it is a self-funded secret tool for the "white and furry" CIA.
                No one can prove anything if the operation was funded by heroin briquettes. If the US investigation in its own Congress suddenly leads no traces too. there was no funding for the operation. Financial documents are at least some evidence / traces. And so it turns out that there is nothing.

                In addition, drug trafficking is a connection and a variant of an agent network, agents of influence.
                Moreover, all this is secret and secret, nothing can be proved. If a journalist starts an investigation, then he will be banned in Google, fired from the magazine - TV, and will not understand that something will happen to him.

                Democrats have complete control over the media.
                They freely make black white and vice versa, or more often they shift attention to something else. They don't have to worry about their image, everything is under control there.

      The United States announced a request from the European allies to postpone the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan


      Oh, how familiar it sounds ... lol


      Logistics (not so good with it) but it is entirely in the hands of the United States.
      If the United States does not organize the withdrawal of its allies from the coalition, then they will not be able to go anywhere.
      Unless they go out in private like civilians.

      Apparently, the United States explained to its partners that due to a coincidence of insurmountable circumstances, they will not be able to leave Afghanistan until the fall.

      Naturally, the partners cried out, don't leave us in this wild country)

    You were not interested in the Taliban if they have a desire and motive to fight with Russia? Except for the conventional Taliban, what kind of extremists and thugs are not hanging around. They are now the Americans are not ordering against Russia to climb.

      And here is the desire, they have a mentality and a way of life - war.

      Fought -> earned -> bought weapons, ammunition, ammunition -> ready for new hostilities.
      Where to sow, harvest, graze livestock here?

      If there is an opportunity to earn money by smuggling / fighting with our Asian republics, they will do it.
      If this "activity" itself does not generate income, then there will be those who will pay for it, for example, with the supply of weapons.

        In reality, it is not even the Afghan gangsters who are worse, but the fact that there are a couple of proud republics here, completely and completely dependent on Russia and from which, from themselves, it is not clear what to expect.

    Materials appeared in the American press, which speak of a request to Washington from European countries. This request is connected with the presence of troops in Afghanistan.
