US press: Pentagon is considering deployment of troops in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan after withdrawal from Afghanistan

60

There is information about the Pentagon's intention to withdraw troops from Afghanistan to specific places of probable basing. If earlier in the United States it was stated that troops could be withdrawn to the bases of the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific region, now new plans are being announced.


So, in the publication WSJ write that the United States authorities are considering the possibility of deploying units withdrawn from Afghanistan in "countries that have a common border in Afghanistan." In particular, they talked about the states of Central Asia - Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

It is noted that "from the region it will be more convenient for the United States to support the Afghan government in its fight against terrorist groups."

From the material:

This makes it possible to establish an effective process to contain the Taliban terrorist group (* banned in Russia).

However, in the American WSJ, citing experts, they note that Washington is going to take such a step more "to contain Russia and China," which, as stated, have a growing influence in the region.

The aforementioned publication reports that at the moment Washington has not turned to official Tashkent and Dushanbe with a request to provide an opportunity to deploy its military contingent, but this possibility is being considered. For the United States, as noted, "it is advisable to create a suitable infrastructure in Central Asia."

At the moment, as American journalists write, the White House is trying to find the best option for deploying their troops.

Let us remind you that the President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon flew to Moscow the other day. He attended the Victory Parade on Red Square. It can be assumed that at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the "Afghan issue" was also discussed - the issue of "pitfalls" of the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

      Central Asia is not ours, unfortunately. I will not be surprised if the Americans will fulfill their plans. The former, brothers, will also offer money - they will agree. Once they did not believe in the existence of the US bases on nezalEzhnoy .. Here it is ,, brotherhood. We must rely on ourselves, and not on “brothers,” who appear only where profit looms.

        An interesting movie ... migrant workers from Central Asia are ours, the money they earn is also ours ... it is logical to assume that the southern underbelly of Russia is also ours.
        The migrant workers of Tajikistan will not go to the United States to the other side of the planet, there are enough of their own Mexicans.
        The Americans, if they wish, can create very uncomfortable conditions, climb insolently into all the holes, it is time to stop them at the approaches to our border by any means and methods.

              From this they do not become "ours". And so that they don't come, you need:
              -or multiply more actively and / or occupy those jobs where they work today.
              - or curtail the economy and not create vacant jobs.

                  The intentions of the State Department are clear: the Americans DO NOT want to withdraw troops far from the Russian borders and are going to mess up the countries that let them in. Let's see how corrupt Rakhmon and Karimov are.

          Find a vocational school in any regional city. If there is something - the minimum. Hence the gaster. In our country, everyone wants to be either lawyers or economists. Skilled workers cannot be found with fire during the day. So the forelocks and Asians are coming. And the forelock in general, in chocolate, crossed the border, cried how hard it was for him to live, he collected five hundred bucks and went home. At home: dressed, fed his kids, and those happy and contented ran to smash the offices of Sberbank, cut St. George's ribbons, smash our embassy and demolish monuments.

          That is, if you talk sensibly, which cannot be said about Rahmon, who actually became another "Tajikbashi".
          Do we have a lot of news about Tajikistan and Turkmenistan?
          There is a complete kirdyk. Rakhmon has already made his offspring practically a second person.
          On the border with the Kirghiz, he arranged a deliberate storm, a week before the events, he arranged military training and the peacekeeper was taken out of the villages.
          Now he flew to our Victory Parade, bargain with GDP and most likely the subject of bargaining is the US base.
          Criminal Rakhmon, settled in like this normally, expensive foreign cars of the Lux class stolen in Russia are quietly driving around Tajikistan under the fifth points of Rakhmon's relatives.
          PS.
          He can also negotiate provocations with his Tajik-Afghan relatives; they invaded Kyrgyzstan through Tajikistan 20 years ago (Batken events).

        In general, different forces and interests are involved in this conflict (between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan).
        There is a version that water is only a formal reason for the conflict between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. According to Bishkek, over the past 15 years, the Tajik side has intensified its expansion in the Batken region, claiming new lands and water sources.
        The population of Tajikistan after the civil war is growing at a much faster pace. On the other hand, internal and external migration from the Batken region of Kyrgyzstan does not subside. Neighbors see free areas, purposefully buy houses and land. At the same time, they register transactions with their registration authorities in order to later declare that these territories belong to the citizens of Tajikistan. For 30 years, the parties were able to agree on only half of the 970 kilometers of the joint border.

        According to the tg channel Salam Kyrgyzstan (https://t.me/made_in_kg), the military exercises conducted by Kyrgyzstan at the Bujum training ground in the Batken region on April 3 may have become the trigger, after which Dushanbe decided on aggression, they say, they are ready to measure their muscles ... Moreover, there was already the third coup in Kyrgyzstan six months ago, the elite is split and is still fighting over spheres of influence.

        It is also worth mentioning here the "smuggling trail" from which clans on both sides of the conflict feed. Apparently, the flow of goods does not stop. Or maybe even their interests are at the heart of the conflict - on the Tajik side, smuggling is controlled by relatives close to E. Rahmon, on the Kyrgyz side - by the southern clans.
        According to analysts from the tg channel Salam Kyrgyzstan (https://t.me/made_in_kg), the latest changes in Kyrgyzstan - the seizure of the country's borders by the forces of the State Committee for National Security (GKNB) - clearly did not please many. I do not exclude that some understatement and indecision of Kyrgyz officials may be associated with this shadow side of the conflict. On the other hand, the head of the State Committee for National Security of Kyrgyzstan Kamchybek Tashiev, who decided to immediately resolve all border issues, has been exchanging messages in the spirit of “himself” with Tajik officials for the last month.

        The conflict could widen quickly in a very short time if the parties do not return to their positions fixed at the beginning of April 2021.
        Turkey is already ready to support Kyrgyzstan in the confrontation with Tajikistan. There were also calls for the expulsion of volunteers through the Turkic brotherhood. Tajikistan can rely on tribes of relatives in Afghanistan and blood brothers - Iran. Then the conflict may develop into the confessional sphere - Sunnis against Shiites.
        According to the security forces of Kyrgyzstan, Afghan mujahideen were also recorded among the attackers.

        In the post-Soviet space, the most densely populated part of Central Asia, the Fergana Valley, may catch fire. Afghanistan is not far away, mountain passes will open soon. If the confrontation between the parties drags on until July, then we should expect the appearance of a much larger number of "guests" from this southern country. The armed residents of the Tajik enclaves, most likely, will play for time, limiting themselves to minor armed provocations and giving a reason to accuse the security forces of Kyrgyzstan of disproportionate use of force.

        According to Dushanbe, Kyrgyzstan is the culprit in the conflict. Internal political conflicts force the new authorities to start a new war and use the state of emergency to deal with their opponents. Tajikistan and its backing China are extremely negative about Turkey's intervention and an attempt to change the balance of power in the region. According to the Tajik side, there is no threat of intervention by Afghan militants; but a planned armed conflict can weaken the situation on the Afghan border. And lead to a more serious military alliance between Tajikistan and Beijing and Tehran.

          The fact that the interests of many are 100 poods, it is just that someone can play their own interests more dexterously on these interests.
          But Rakhmon completely lost his shores, the people are becoming impoverished more and more, during the year of the pandemic it became even worse, last year in the fall, when trains with grain from Kazakhstan stood up and wheat prices soared, ordinary Tajiks did not know how to survive.
          Rahmon needs to direct the people's discontent somewhere.

        This is not entirely true. Central Asia is still very strongly connected with Russia both historically and economically and, if not strange geographically :). They are not strangers to us and we are not at all strangers to them.

      In today's Central Asia, they are stubbornly looking for a master who will protect the local bai-khans who agree to serve anyone for just the promise of keeping them in power. All, without exception, the Social Democrats-liberals in Europe and Asia agree to any master, just to stay in power. Well, as a last resort, the former social democrats-liberals will run to their former owner, if they have time, of course. People, homeland for them is an empty phrase.

    So it is possible to establish an effective process to contain the terrorist group "Taliban"
    What a twist. Tired of "fighting" the Taliban in Afghanistan, so we decided to fight them at the borders of Russia. If the leadership of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan gives the go-ahead for this (there is a hope that not), then this can be viewed as a direct threat to our country. In addition, our base is in Tajikistan (201 divisions). The Americans have only to enter somewhere on the floor of a soldier's boot, and before you have time to look back, and already a whole soldier is there.

And these devils are again climbing under a plausible pretext. American schools are opening, now there is nowhere to give troops, except to the neighbors of Afghanistan. I really hope that the current President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Miromonovich Mirziyoyev will adequately react to the situation.

    In Tajikistan, I hope they understand that letting the Americans in in the near future may seriously damage the territorial integrity. Where, then, again, can the Tajik workers be hired? To America? The Americans, farther from their country, have recently tried to adopt the Russian experience of using Tajik labor. It didn't work out very well.
    And by how much, when placing the Americans, it will be necessary to increase the contraband flow of Russian fuel ...

      And "in response" 201 military units will be sent from Tajikistan. You have to play thinner.

    According to my information, the Biden administration is considering the deployment of the American contingent in the provinces of China and Iran bordering Afghanistan. Someone will forbid them to "think"?

    It is noted that "from the region it will be more convenient for the United States to support the Afghan government in its fight against terrorist groups."


    Yeah, that's how we believed ... these are all elements of one plan to encircle Russia.

    Any American base in any country bordering Russia should be viewed as a terrorist training base. And all terrorist bases should be destroyed with high-precision missile weapons. If US citizens are killed in such attacks, that is only good. The United States is expressing concern and will withdraw its military contingent.
    The more American troops outside of the United States are killed, the better. The United States will not undertake any military action against Russia under any circumstances.
