US intends to withdraw military contingent from Afghanistan earlier than planned

27

The United States will withdraw its military contingent from Afghanistan earlier than planned, but the Pentagon has not yet decided on the deployment of the withdrawn forces in nearby countries.


According to the New York Times, the US military and its allies intend to complete the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan in July, and not in September, as previously planned. The reasons for this "quick" withdrawal are not named, but it is emphasized that the Pentagon has not yet decided on further actions to combat terrorist threats.

Until now, there are no plans to deploy American troops and allied forces in countries from whose territory it is possible to control the situation in Afghanistan. As you know, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan do not intend to place Americans on their territory, and nothing has been reported about other countries so far. True, there was information about the US negotiations with Pakistan, but some vague, apparently the parties did not agree. Moreover, Pakistan gravitates towards China, and that is the enemy of the United States.

At the same time, the United States does not stop giving "loud promises", declaring that it "will not leave" Afghanistan alone with the terrorists. As the Pentagon said, talks with Afghanistan's neighbors are "progressing" but will take "much longer." Washington promises not to leave the region completely.

Following the USA, they "reported" to NATO. As Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, the alliance remains committed to partnership with Afghanistan.

      God grant that this was an escape) and not the operation "Thank you for persuading me to stay")))
      In any case, in light of the upcoming barrages with Iran, he clearly does not intend to go far to have a rapid reaction force)

      Well, again, complete nonsense ... For the penultimate time, they planned to withdraw troops before May 5 ... The United States did not fulfill the agreement and are getting it in full ...What is earlier, if later - these are after all PINS, what to take from them?

      Back and forth, back and forth. And what does it look like? Or have they already calculated that there will be no poppy and hemp harvest this year? Pandemic, however! There is no one to work.

    The question is where will these "Afghans" be transferred? And what dirty trick should we prepare for?

      The dirty trick is obvious, the ISIS army or the like will grow there soon. Plus the growth of the poppy crop.

        This is doubtful. Most likely, the Taliban will cleanse the clearing of everything "superficial" or drive them out to adjacent territories and thereby ensure for themselves a complete monopoly on power in Afghanistan.

        During the period when the Americans were in Afghanistan, the flow of drugs from there increased 60-fold. It looks like the Americans were fighting drug trafficking? most likely, on the contrary, they contributed to the growth of this infection. I am already silent about who at one time nurtured this ISIS.
        The presence of the Americans in Afghanistan is certainly not in the interests of our country, since they can shit on us from Afghanistan much more than the same ISIS.

          There will be as many drugs as they buy from us, regardless of whether the United States is there. It's just that a new terrorist state will grow up here, which will undermine stability in Central Asia. And maybe it will strike at our allies.

            I doubt that. In Afghanistan, it will be as always there: when there is no common enemy, the territory will be divided between different local groups.

    I remember there was information that there are a lot of rare earth metals in Afghanistan, but they can be mined when there is peace in the republic. And this is a pipe dream for Afghanistan. Therefore, the Americans will not be able to mine anything there except heroin. So they make their legs.

    More than once this topic has surfaced on VO.
    The withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan will create tension on its borders. The Taliban and other gangs will simply have nothing to plunder and direct the foolishness of youth and radicals to their external neighbors. Drugs as they drove - and will be driven. Systematic aerial bombardment of poppy fields with something inexpensive and effective would come in handy. There is no air defense in Afghanistan anyway.

    Murmur 55 ..... The question is where will these "Afghans" be transferred? And what dirty trick should we prepare for?

    Yes, it is important. One thing is clear, they must again "catch" somewhere in the underbelly of Russia. Type: Turkmenistan, Georgia, Azeibarjan. Here they will control the Caucasus, Iran and Russia. This is evidenced by their annual statements on withdrawal from Afghanistan, with subsequent postponements. Apparently
    have difficulties with a treaty with the countries of the region.
    Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan have already refused them.

    You can't please us
    They sit there - it's "bad" for us - they cover the drugs.
    They want to leave - they run, "let them flow around"
    Change their minds and stay - well, vaasche chaos!

    Are we ourselves? Nope. We didn’t climb - we swam.

    Maybe already leave this Afghan alone for ten years, but see what happens.

      Afghanistan will never be alone. There will begin a redistribution of drug trafficking, the Taliban will be given money to bribe terrorists in the neighborhood, And the Americans are leaving because a very cool batch is planned.

    A strange haste. Maybe they will deploy their contingent in Ukraine? Everyone will be happy there. The centuries-old love of slaves is proof of this. Again, they do not need to travel far - the outlets can be scrubbed, next to their native farm. And most importantly, NATO will almost join Ukraine.

    it's not even funny - private contractors will remain (PMCs for 2019 - about 25 carcasses, 000 with civilian specialists), will continue to chop cabbage (in 30400 mattresses were spent on private traders about 2012 billion + 232,2 lard "dissipated") and natives :
    "Between October 2001 and October 2019, 2298 US troops and 3814 employees of private military and security companies providing services to the US Department of Defense in this operation were killed in Afghanistan." ©

    As Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, the alliance remains committed to partnership with Afghanistan.

    So send this Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, together with his office, to Afghanistan instead of the Americans. Let him personally partner on the spot, if he is so committed, and does not study the situation on TV.

    What's the rush? Usually, on the contrary, they delay in order to plunder more, but here the time is reduced. Apparently, they are doing very badly and the terrorists under their control are no longer able to cover up their drug and arms business. Their "partners" are also running after them ... Australia is closing down its embassy, ​​ostensibly for security reasons.
