British Secretary of Defense: There are no security guarantees for the Afghans who supported the British contingent

21

The British press publishes materials, which say that the United Kingdom military personnel, who are planned to be withdrawn from Afghanistan by September of this year, "may not return home alone." The British government announced an initiative to "provide assistance to Afghans who acted in the interests of the British military contingent in Afghanistan."


According to the latest information, on the basis of this initiative, several hundred Afghans in the near future can obtain a residence permit in Foggy Albion and move there after the withdrawal of British troops.

What specific citizens of Afghanistan are we talking about in this case?

As it turns out, the doors of the United Kingdom are going to be opened, for example, for Afghan translators who worked at NATO military bases. Official London plans to host members of their families in the country. In total, this is up to a thousand people.

At the same time, Britain is voicing the reason for such an initiative. As it turns out, the British themselves are not sure of the safety of those who helped them on Afghan territory. There is a high degree of probability that the militants of the Taliban terrorist group (banned in Russia) will crack down on the Afghans who collaborated with the invaders.

According to British Department of Defense Ben Wallace, "there are no guarantees of security for the Afghans who supported the British contingent." Wallace added that when issuing a residence permit in Britain, an Afghan citizen will "take into account the length of service and activity of his cooperation with the United Kingdom army."

This eloquently testifies to what kind of "democracy" the United States, Britain and their allies have built over the 20 years of their stay in Afghanistan.

      The Nazis also did not guarantee the safety of the Ukrainian policemen.

      The inhabitants of the country do not like traitors.
      But in Russia, not in Afghanistan, no one will give security guarantees to traitors.

        At least the Angles agreed to take with them "a few hundred" of the thousands who collaborated with them.
        This means that they are not going to give up profitable drug treatment altogether. Because the former allies who have become unnecessary, they always leave without hesitation.

      It's not about that. In all honesty, let's face it, the USSR also failed to create a strong socialist state on Afghan soil.

      And as for those Afghans who worked for the United States and NATO countries in Afghanistan, for objective reasons they really should provide them with the opportunity to live safely outside Afghanistan, taking into account the well-known attitude of local thugs towards such Afghans.

    The Taliban will cut out all who collaborated with the foreign contingent, but in England, too, the strong positions of the Islamists. Therefore, they can get it there.

    And Germany has already announced that it is ready to accept the Afghans who collaborated with them.
    Whether they are needed here - everyone has their own opinion on this.
    As far as I know, there are also troops from Poland, the Tribaltic and others, will they really take their "assistants"?

    That's right, as soon as the invaders leave, the people will kill the policemen.

    Nothing new. The invaders are leaving and there is no place for the policemen in the wagon train. Waste material ... stop

    Eh, everything is bad. For more than a century, the British have been cultivating opium poppies in Afghanistan with the hands of local opium poppies. And now the Americans, with a heavy army ankle, have kicked out the "adherents of tradition", occupying their niche in drug production. Surely the "cooperating contingent" tried to influence the situation through the British soldiers, but they themselves train their tongues in licking American butts, and cannot do anything. Well, at least they will hide the drug bandits at home, since they have money. But what are Afghan drug gangs going to do in London? Yes, the only one that they can do at all. Hehe ... for a guest and honor)

    Yes, because the USSR also left Afghanistan. And the fate of many who supported the "shuravi" was unenviable, alas ... But this is the problem of any civil war! It is impossible to save everyone and help everyone. And people left for the USSR in a similar way, this is natural.

    Civil wars are tragedies, the consequences of which must be experienced and ironed out by the peoples themselves, if they want to survive and continue a normal existence. And neither the Americans, nor the British, nor the Russians and the Chinese will resolve these contradictions ...

    It was then that they began to say that the Americans were worse. The building of socialism was much more profitable and progressive for Afghanistan than the subsequent democratization.

      .
      When the USSR left Afghanistan, there was still a "strong government" behind.
      Why then Kabul fell ...
      For example - someone twice DRA Hero Major General Abdul-Rashid Dostum in March 1992 went over to the side of the opposition ...
      Under the Americans, Dostum became marshal.
      There is no need to worry about NATO servicemen in Afghanistan - almost all of them will turn out to be "sent Cossacks". They will join some groups (gangs from their native village).

    Well, while it looks like ISOF is leaving - and in the evening the Taliban are already arriving. Herat is falling off right now. At first they occupied abandoned bases, now the suburbs are under the Taliban.

    Unfortunately, peace in Afghanistan is possible only in one case - if the Taliban come to power! Of course, the "massacre" will begin - they will "clean up" all the former and collaborators, or, as the Ukrainians love, they will luster! Then they will establish a Wild, with elements of Obscurantism! A sea of ​​blood will be shed, but the Taliban will eventually "play enough" and they will want international contacts .... The whole world will have to reckon with them !!! There is, of course, another option, that having received Full Power, they will climb into the CIS countries! Here, for Russia and "pseudo allies" will come "Hour X" !!!

    Not a big chance, but exactly 100% of them will face reprisals, as well as their families.

    I think after the seizure of power by the Taliban, they will be condemned by the Sharia court and stoned.
