"Taliban" make fun "of America": militants dressed in captured US Army uniforms

70

Taliban fighters [a terrorist organization banned in the Russian Federation] make fun of American troops who abandoned their local "allies" and hastily retreated from the country.

Taking advantage of the situation, the militants easily defeated the Afghan army and immediately occupied almost the entire territory of Afghanistan, with the exception of Panjshir. Along the way, they got impressive trophies of war, including a warehouse with American ammunition and equipment. The Taliban have already boasted of these "gifts of fate".



They posted a video in which they are dressed in trophy uniforms of American soldiers and armed with assault rifles of the US Army. The Taliban *, who have taken advantage of their adversary's property, are said to be part of an elite unit guarding Kabul. The equipment shown in the video includes attributes characteristic of the US Special Forces: M4 and M16 rifles (carbines), body armor and helmets with night vision goggles.

As explained by American experts, the ownership weapons his enemy is a symbol of success achieved by more than one decade of stubborn struggle.

Taliban makes fun of America

- noted in connection with the publication of the video in the Business Insider.

Earlier on the CNN channel, a report was released, which reported that the NSA (National Security Agency) is conducting an audit of weapons and military equipment supplied to Afghanistan over 20 years. According to the latest data, from 2013 to 2016 alone, the Afghan army received more than 600 thousand small arms and up to 80 thousand army armored vehicles, including the HMMWV.

      That's where they made fun of it, yes, the same Taliban in American uniform are trolling the United States raising the Taliban flag over Afghanistan, just like the Americans in Iwo Jima in 1945 - That's how you need to PR and troll the enemy
      Not only did the ragamuffins in slippers drove away the "strongest" army in the world, they humiliated this army, and at the same time all patriotic Americans (and this is practically all of America) humiliated in a way that no one has ever humiliated them. Using their own American propaganda. Namely, the same famous photograph in which the Americans claim one of their very few victories, planting the American flag on Ivo Jim in 1945.

      Dressed in seized uniforms and American equipment from American-trained Afghans, Johnny Taliban raises the Taliban flag over Afghanistan, completely copying a famous propaganda photograph taken seventy-five years ago by their current enemies.
      I hope someday we will raise our flag like this over Donbass and Kiev

        On the obvious session of anti-American hysteria "drove up", it seems
        Americans claim one of their very few victories

        Such "very few" victories that by the spring of 1945 militaristic Japan "for some reason" found itself with a naval fleet lying at the bottom, shot down and burned by bombing strikes at airfields by aircraft, and even in an American naval blockade of the Japanese islands themselves.

      USSR received under Lend-Lease

      The USSR received more than 600 thousand cars under Lend-Lease. Out of 12 thousand Katyushas, ​​only 500 +/- were on a domestic chassis. The Americans released 40+ thousand M-4 Sherman, fought a lot in the ranks of the Red Army, there are no exact numbers. But they went through the whole war, along with the Matilda.

      The Wehrmacht captured all of Europe, brought England to its knees.

            England in 1940 the world hegemon, the largest power in the world, an empire that, in addition to the metropolis, included Canada, Australia, New Zealand, British India (modern India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka), half of Africa, the Middle East and dozens of other territories all over the world like Falklands, Bahamas, Virginia, etc. Hitler did not have a fleet that would defeat the British fleet for the landing of troops in England, moreover, even in aviation, the Luftwaffe was losing to British aviation. So, having no advantage either at sea or in the sky, Germany could not land troops and capture England.

                  Well, if we talk about alternative history. If we exclude the USA and the USSR, then the Germans would have dealt with the British unequivocally. They would have captured Malta, like Crete, which would have given them the opportunity to control communications in the Mediterranean, and then, having given normal supplies to Rommel, they would have entered India and captured Africa, and then the wealth of the colonies would flow to the Reich and not to old England. And of course, if the Reich had not fought with the USSR, then not only he, but Manstein, Guderian, Goth and others went to South Africa ... , but 10 and not one Bismarck, but 7 such ships and plus submarines and aircraft would have brought the German flag to London !!!

                    Well I do not know. Churchill was a good Windsor dog, and they would go to Canada and continue the war. I do not think that the Wehrmacht could pass through the jungles of Central Africa to South Africa, and even more so could not cross Iran and reach India. The Wehrmacht could reach equatorial Africa at maximum strength, and capture the Middle East, but could no longer. Nazi ideology is suicidal in itself, and even in Ukraine, Nazi ideology caused rejection in itself, where the Germans are the highest race, because Ukrainians considered themselves to be real Europeans.

                      Germans are a very disciplined nation, they are not Ukrainians! They would have reached Mars, not just Iran, especially since Iranian oil was closer than the reserves of South Africa! They crawled waist-deep in mud across the fields of Russia. And whoever was able to get to Stalingrad and the Caucasus, he can get anywhere! Then you forget about the German airborne forces! And they were very good!
                      Well, maybe Churchill would have fled to Canada, leaving everything behind! But with what forces would he have fought there? How is Khodarkovsky with Putin with the help of newspapers and magazines? England would not have won that war without the United States! They had a chance with France on the continent, but even with France they missed it!
                      It was the weakness of England in that war that led to the hegemony of the United States! Otherwise, we would have waged a cold war with them and not with the United States! England dog USA, that's the truth!

    Between 2013 and 2016, the US gave Afghan forces more than 600,000 light weapons, such as M16 and M4 rifles and nearly 80,000 vehicles, as well as night vision goggles, radios and more, according to a 2017 Government Accountability Office report. Even more recently, the US Defense Department supplied the Afghan military with 7,000 machine guns, 4,700 Humvees and more than 20,000 grenades between 2017 and 2019, a report from the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction found.

    Seriously speaking, the Taliban fighters in Kabul were dressed in trophy American uniforms, apparently with the aim of giving them a more civilized look. Instead of laughing at the Americans.
    A couple of years will pass, the trophy uniform is demolished and the Taliban fighters will again be dressed in traditional Pashtun attire: harem pants and knee-length shirts.

    Roughly the same story with the American M4 and M16 carbines. Maybe individual Taliban fighters or individual squads will pull and get used to the more complex maintenance of their personal weapons. The bulk of the same will return to use for the Kalashnikov assault rifle.

      First, this very "complexity of service" is greatly exaggerated. To put it mildly. The Viet Cong used American trophy weapons, for example, quite successfully. Moreover, they had radically fewer problems with it than the American troops themselves. Well, it's just that no one had time to tell them a very pernicious story about "it is not necessary to clean it, it cleans itself by itself."
      The question is rather about consumables / spare parts, but most importantly, the availability of suitable ammunition.

    It's funny, but the laugh is bad!
    How many sleeping cells do they have in Central Asia? If Afghanistan under their rule somehow has borders, then the ideology of the Taliban has no borders. Their creeping expansion into Central Asia is irreversible. There are many of their supporters who are inspired by their victory and are waiting for the right moment when the government is shaken.
    In Kyrgyzstan, the political system is not stable. And it is she who can become the first target of the Taliban.
    And yes, the Armed Forces of the Central Asian republics will be able to oppose something to them if there are no unrest within the states themselves. And they will. There is someone to create them.
    Recruiters, emissaries, preachers will be drawn there one way or another. Will excite the local population.
    There are also people from the CIS countries in the Taliban who export their ideas to their homeland.
    So everything is very very serious. And even if you believe the Taliban, they will not go further. So be it.
    But literature, ideology, recruiters do not know borders.
    Well, all Western weapons will now spread to neighboring countries. Local Islamists will receive it.

      You in Ukraine do not show on TV what the dry mercenaries shout at the parade? How so? Do you have democracy in Ukraine? And on Russian TV, which is ALREADY not yours, yes, the herd was not shown with stupid chants, you were so sad lol Rumor has it in the EU that they are not going to accept Ukraine into their ranks in the coming years. Maybe they weren’t. You would have attended to this, and not by the chants of neo-Nazis. hi

    They posted a video in which they are dressed in trophy uniforms of American soldiers and armed with assault rifles of the US Army.

    And what's good to be lost. By the way, there are not so many Taliban as such, there are more mercenaries from other countries (they talked about this on TV), who will then carry American weapons around the world.

    Why do they immediately "laugh", they just want to look civilized in front of the whole world for free. It's a smart decision to change your army from underpants to uniform. Now it will be much more difficult for the world's media to maintain a stable disgust of the masses of the people.

    attributes characteristic of US special forces: rifles (carbines) M4 and M16

    What is in the machines, which are produced in a bunch of different countries, "typical for the special purpose units of the US Armed Forces" is anyone's guess.
    Although in this case, the weapon is most likely stolen by terrorists from the terrorist gang "Taliban" * from the warehouses of the Afghan National Army ....
    (* this criminal, villainous bandit formation is recognized as a terrorist organization and is prohibited on the territory of the Russian Federation (in accordance with the decision of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of 14.02.2003 No. GKPI 03-116, entered into force on 04.03.2003)

    At the expense of 80 thousand armored vehicles for sure? The figure somewhat confuses me.
    And also fuel, spare parts and qualified maintenance.
