British Department of Defense: We Can Attack Afghanistan, Based and Beyond

44

Britain has once again commented on the situation with the withdrawal of its contingent from Afghanistan. We will remind that earlier in London announced plans to retain special forces in this country, which will act as "instructors" to continue the training of the Afghan army.

At the same time, the British military did not report what prevented them from preparing the Afghan army for 20 years of military presence, at least so that its representatives would not surrender entire cities without a fight, or at least did not cross over to adjacent territory. Although there is a version that the preparation on the part of the British and other representatives of NATO could consist in the fact that some detachments under the guise of a retreating Afghan army infiltrate, for example, into the territory of Tajikistan.



New statements from Britain are related to plans to launch attacks on terrorists in Afghanistan. The UK Department of Defense says it is "considering the option of conducting remote missions."

From a statement by a spokesman for the British military:

We will be able to strike at Afghanistan, based and beyond.

In particular, it points to the possible use of the British military base in Cyprus for such strikes.

From the statement:

We already have this kind of experience in bombing terrorists in Syria and Iraq. For this we use military bases outside these countries, but this does not affect efficiency.

At the same time, London is considering the possibility of deploying its strike forces "closer to Afghanistan." It has not yet been announced which specific country for such a placement can be discussed.

Earlier it was reported that the United States continues to negotiate with the authorities of the Central Asian republics for a possible partial deployment of its contingents after the withdrawal from Afghan territory.

      It is surprising of course one country decided to strike at another, why? On what grounds? And then they scratch us about international law and human rights

        So they let it slip, instead of striking the Taliban, they strike them in Afghanistan

          Earlier it was reported that The United States continues to negotiate with the authorities of the Central Asian republics for a possible partial deployment of its contingents after the withdrawal from Afghan territory.

          According to the strategy of the Pentagon "Anaconda" Washington found a convenient reason to place further around Russia its "snake nests" - American military bases - in the same former Soviet republics of Central Asia - closer to the borders of Russia!

          American troops, in principle, are not leaving anywhere and from where - but they are spreading farther and farther and breed in other countries, like poisonous snakes, along the borders around the country - victims of American aggression.

          ............................................ US military bases.

        The height of cynicism. How does the need to strike at a country that does not threaten anything arise sideways?

      How it influences. Have you (Anglo-Saxons) ever heard anything about entire underground cities of militants? If you haven't heard, then in vain, you will be unpleasantly surprised.

        long-range strikes are directly ineffective due to the "left" loading of fuel.
        you have to carry it little by little and more times. The reaction time increases, target designation becomes more complicated, technical problems and risks increase. I think this increases the cost of the operation by 3-4 times.
        In addition, if it is an F-16, then the British use wing pylons, and this was considered by their colleagues to be unsafe.

      Already. Terrorist attacks in England are not uncommon for a long time. For strikes on their territory, the same Afghans will take revenge by killing civilians in English cities.

    Now the violation of human rights will begin, support for "some kind of there ..." Then the freezing of bank accounts, sanctions.
    If they achieve their goal, the next step will be to change the leadership of the republics, through the Maidans.

      They can do it, but it can only work with those who are not part of the ODBC. And this is just Uzbekistan. With Turkmenistan as maintaining neutrality, it is also unlikely to succeed.

        It should be understood that the Uzbeks and Turkmen are peoples who have lived in relative military security during all the post-Soviet years. They have their own armed forces, but: they do not have experience in modern battles, are equipped with old equipment for the most part, their UAVs are mostly imported and for parades. For example, they definitely do not have experience like in Syria with UAVs. They have long borders with Afghanistan and Pakistan nearby.
        Not entering the CSTO, they greatly risk their security. And the neutrality in "friendship" with the USA and NATO - we see what happened to Iraq, Libya, the Afghan satellites - was thrown by Uncle SAM. Similarly, the Uzbeks and the Turkmen are for the West a bargaining transit area for proxy Islamists.

      A mixture of fire - an old woman on the throne and a fagot Prime Minister. Their actions are commented and explained by the Minister of Agriculture, behave like animals. They crawl into all the cracks, in vain they did not fire on the "Defender". Let them try to bomb from around the corner, they will be cut from around the corner in all Muslim countries.

    It is impossible to win a local war with air strikes alone. The war will not end until the foot of the soldier sets foot on this ground. In our case, the feet of the soldiers flew out of this war zone.

    Interestingly, what is the cost of such strikes, and most importantly, what can they achieve? Are they not afraid that the Taliban will organize several strikes on Britain? England has a lot of experience in raking in Afghanistan, but it seems that this does not teach them anything.

    They become impudent every year. Earlier England did everything "out of tishka",
    hid her desires in florid political verbiage, hiding behind international rights. Today, when international laws and rules have been destroyed, they openly declare their predatory desires. To inflict air strikes on a country without air defense is the height of cynicism.
