The United States demanded to leave nine military bases in Afghanistan

The United States authorities intend to leave nine permanent military bases on the territory of Afghanistan after 2014, as a condition for signing a bilateral security agreement, President Hamid Karzai said at Kabul University on Thursday.

The head of the Afghan state, voicing plans for a US long-term military presence in Afghanistan, said that the US wants to leave the permanent military bases in the provinces of Nangarhar, Parwan, Balkh, Kabul, Paktia, Kandahar, Helmand and Herat, that is, where the largest military bases are now located NATO, including military airfields, reports RIA "News».

According to the president, Afghanistan is going through a difficult moment. storiesfacing challenges in security and economy. In this situation, the presence of foreign troops after 2014 will be beneficial for Afghanistan.

“If they provide us with this (security and economic development), we agree to sign this agreement,” the Afghan media quoted Karzai as saying.

Touching on the reaction of the region’s states to the US’s desire to keep permanent military bases in Afghanistan, Karzai said that the Islamic Republic is committed to developing good relations with its neighbors.

According to observers and the media, the Americans demonstrated that their earlier statements about the absence of the intention to maintain a long-term military presence in Afghanistan were a deception of public opinion.

Earlier this year, US President Barack Obama announced that the war in Afghanistan would end by the end of 2014. According to media reports, about 66 of thousands of US troops are currently serving in Afghanistan. It was also reported that the White House had not yet made a final decision on whether American troops would remain in the Islamic Republic after 2014, when the main forces of the NATO contingent left the country. However, German Defense Minister Thomas de Maiziere said that his American counterpart Leon Panetta spoke about intentions to leave in Afghanistan from 8 to 12 thousands of American soldiers.

    If this is true, then the amers have a "lip not a fool" ... But the question is, what task will these bases have?

        That's right :). Foreign troops will ensure the free production of opium in large quantities.

        In this connection, I propose to provide technical assistance in the construction of tunnels and other methods of delivering drugs to Mexican drug cartels in order to ensure unhindered drug supplies to the United States, because millions of drug addicts suffer from withdrawal ...

      The same as 800 others around the world. Now there will be 809 bases.

      By the way, over the past 5 weeks in Afghanistan, 27 American soldiers have been killed, including 13 American troops in early May.

      In a simple and accessible language, this means:

      Afghanistan: millions of dollars from the CIA for Karzai

      Since 2002, the Afghan leader has been receiving a continuous flow of ghost money, Maurizio Molinari writes in an article published in the newspaper La Stampa.

      “In Kabul, they call them Ghost Money, phantom money: it's about the CIA funding President Hamid Karzai, his political allies and the local military forces that support him. Langley has never denied that they are financing Kabul, but now The New York The Times speaks of the "tens of millions of dollars" that the American emissaries handed over to Afghan leaders since 2002, whose role was considered very important for the survival of the weak Karzai government, "the publication said.

        They came in accordance with a UN resolution, but remain based on their strategic interests. They climb into all the cracks, but someday they will tear - and if the dollar can be replaced with gold, then this will happen in some ten years.

    Finally, I’m all thinking, when will they be born out of bases in Afghanistan, otherwise we’ll get it out, get it out. smile Well, they can’t completely leave, there is no such thing. They will probably bake bread for the locals, teach people and children to heal, and maybe they will build roads or some factories ...

      They hung noodles on their ears, clearly and clearly: " The Caspian region, to which Afghanistan provides strategic access, contains approximately 270 billion barrels of oil, representing about 20 percent of the world's proven reserves. Its territory also accounts for 665 trillion. cubic feet of natural gas, approximately one-eighth of the planet’s gas reserves.
      Americans solve their own tasks in Afghanistan quite actively. Why did they choose Afghanistan as the target of the strikes? Its geopolitical position allows it to influence the situation in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China. To influence the situation in the Central Asian states. Affect Iran’s politics. Affect India. It is no coincidence that, in parallel with the hostilities in Afghanistan, relations between India and Pakistan escalated. Finally, gaining a foothold in Afghanistan and Central Asia, the United States got an additional opportunity to put pressure on Russia. The geopolitical doctrine of the United States took shape in the middle of the XIX century. One of its ideologists, Joshua Strong, in 1885, published a work defining US long-term politics. It was there that the goal was set - achieving world domination. Then the most famous geopolitician of the late XIX - early XX centuries, Admiral Alfred Mayhan developed this theory, clarifying that the territory of Eurasia, especially Russia, is the middle of the globe. He came to the conclusion that without establishing control over this territory it is impossible to rule the world. It was Meihan who proposed the “Anaconda Loop.” It is far from accidental that the Pentagon’s operation in Afghanistan and Central Asia is called the Anaconda. Around Russia a chain of bases is being created in order to deprive it of its geopolitical and strategic maneuver, to exert constant influence, to squeeze, to strangle...

Ay, Oh, Wei everything is gone, the station is leaving - the bags are left! laughing And all that was necessary was to carefully watch HOW they "left" Iraq. How many "advisers" of officers and privates they left, and gave them the status of diplomatic immunity! And where, "troops" were withdrawn. Well, having transferred the situation to the Central Asian region, to predict the place of "withdrawal" at 14m. For a better result and world outlook, add the latest GDP statement to strengthen the southern border and a comprehensive parade with exercises in Kazakhstan.

    According to The New York Times, deposits of copper, gold, cobalt and the most important lithium metal in the industry were discovered in Afghanistan. And this is the main metal (coal of the XXI century) for the manufacture of the most advanced mass-produced batteries at present - lithium-ion. A memo prepared at the Pentagon says Afghanistan could become "lithium Saudi Arabia." The found Afghan emerald reserves are superior to the Colombian ones in both quality and volume.
    All this helps explain to the American public (i.e. the voter) why and where the NATO operation in Afghanistan is going at all. There is something to fight for.
    PS I forgot the main thing - Afghans will have “democracy”.
    And feminists have something to do, fight for the rights of their Pashtun sisters.

    As humanitarian aid to the Taliban, it will be possible to talk about the battle of Dienbenf.
    I think they will be happy to train on mattresses. After all, no one forbids using the potential of the militants created by the amers against themselves. And our authorities may well help the fighters for the independence of Afghanistan with good advice. lol
    ZY: Maybe a limited contingent will have to be introduced.

    There will be from 8 to 12 thousand people. That will be fun for the Taliban. Here they frolic, and America is washed away by the blood. And after a year, another one will run away from Afghanistan. Karzai’s regime rests on the bayonets of coalition forces. The troops will leave - they will hang Karzai and his minions. Next, the Taliban should seize power, unite the country, and restore order in the country. Can our government begin to establish relations with the Taliban?

    Well, everyone heard the tales of the departures, but I don’t remember that they would leave somewhere (except Vietnam) ... In addition to the military bases, PMCs will remain. So that they leave control over the region bordering China, Iran, Russia, Pakistan and Central Asia - IT'S NOT MIXED. Afghanistan is the heart of the region, and not then they climbed there to leave.

    Well, finally, here it is! I kept wondering when, when the Yankees would drop verbiage and declare that they remained on a permanent basis. After all, it was proved by A. Makedonsky that anyone who wants to control the Silk Road should control Afghanistan. And for this to conquer it. You need to stay in it and live. What Macedonian did when he founded the empire. Everything is masked, accents are placed. America is doomed to repeat the path traveled by England and the USSR. The result is known. The Macedonian empire lasted until his death only because he lived there. The capital was there, the infrastructure was there. Everything was in the empire and not in Macedonia overseas. The Yankees are going to stay overseas. So America has firmly taken the path of repeating the mistakes of Britain. Calmly sitting on the bases of the Taliban and others. Islamists will allow amers only if they do not interfere in their things that are impossible by default. Not for this they stay there. America got its war of attrition. And on the horizon there’s also a war in Iran, if they don’t have time to finish the bomb. And things are in economic Mike is getting worse at the Yankees.

    Yes, in principle, this is good. The number of troops for control is not enough, but for the terror of these bases by the Afghans it is quite acceptable. Let them be. Everything is better than going there openly.

    Amers leave nine bases in Afghanistan as a guarantee not to merge Karzai and have a reliable US ally. But everything is so unsteady that after the departure of the NATO coalition, Karzai will easily agree to the Taliban and accept their terms if the amers do not offer anything more meaningful.
    For Russia, no one has canceled the previous threats and realities of drug trafficking, as well as the expansion into the former Central Asia.

      All so amers before drug trafficking from Afghanistan to Shuravi nevermind. And on the issue of deterring the Taliban and hordes of Pashtuns in Central Asia, Amera is not our allies, but fellow travelers. We are still interested in finding their "expeditionary force within the borders of Afghanistan, but we are careful not to expand their presence in the zone of interests of Russia, in the southern underbelly of our border."
