The Pentagon has requested 79,4 billion dollars to support US forces abroad in 2014The US Department of Defense sent a request to Congress for the allocation of FN 2014. funds to finance the operations of the armed forces abroad OCO (overseas contingency operations). In total terms, these costs are about 7 billion less than in the last fiscal year.


According to Pentagon press secretary George Little, the budget request reflects the plans of the Ministry of Defense to withdraw troops from Afghanistan over the next year or two years, since in 2013 f. 68 ths. military should be displayed, and in 2014 f.g. - 38400 military personnel.

According to the current plan for withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, there will be about 60 thousand soldiers on its territory for the duration of the fighting during the warm period of the year, and by November 2013 the number of US forces in Afghanistan will decrease to 50 thousand, and by February 2014 g - up to 34 thous. military personnel.

All US military forces will leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014, after which only national units supporting 352 thousand will remain in the country.

    I read an interesting article yesterday (link: http://voprosik.net/kak-nato-zavoyuet-rossiyu-k-2015-godu/). For all the peaceful rhetoric of the Amers, it turns out that the military bases deployed by them around the world should be ready by 2014-15, hypersonic missiles are being adopted by this time. Using everything together, they get a strong lever to put pressure on Russia, which consists in the possibility of its immediate withdrawal from the game. hi

      To do this, in the beginning they should be brought to mind, which seems very doubtful, given the expected time frame.

        It's not just the Afghan contingent.
        The United States, in accordance with its National Military Strategy, is building up a covert military presence in other states. Corresponding military units now exist in 130 countries of the world.
        About 6 thousand military bases are located in the United States and several hundred in other countries (190 in Europe, over 80 in Asia, 16 in Latin America).
        In Russia, everything is much sadder: In 1994, the Russian Federation had 28 bases and military facilities in Moldova, Crimea, Georgia, Armenia, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan. Today their number has dropped to 25.
        Russia is trying to restore its positions not only in the CIS. So, it was announced the resumption of military-technical support for Russian ships at former military bases in Camrani (Vietnam), Lourdes (Cuba) and the Seychelles. But so far this is not about a military presence, but about the restoration of crew resources.

      No one in the United States does not think of abandoning imperialist politics.
      And most importantly, for the capture and extraction of natural resources and oil and gas!

        The result of the article is this: Americans will NEVER leave Afghanistan.
        He has a hidden task: to protect poppy fields.
        If Russia finds a way to destroy these fields, then the Americans in Afghanistan will have nothing more to do.

      not weak lever for pressure on Russia

      Is it really so sad with us, and there is no chance? Why then are we ready to spend huge amounts of money to help the USA after the tornado ... since we offer them help.

        Sadly, it could have been worse if the 90s continued. Amers, too, are far from perfect. Now such a question, if there is a serious mess, will the Amers be allowed to use satellites and drones (at least they will not be able to use them at full strength), and now think whether the Amers can fight well without modern intelligence means?

    Everything goes to this, the war will write everything off, including huge US debts. But just the same, the amers will rake in the end, if they decide to go to Russia, I won’t explain why!

    money is given less and less, but the situation requires more activity, I wonder how the amers will get out in connection with budget cuts? See Coca-Cola will have to be removed from the diet

    Well, it’s been written with a pitchfork, and the reduction of ballistic missiles on combat duty in the USA is a reality, and the budget cut, the same, and the flightless Fe-35 with a gold Khryaptor is also the harsh truth of life ... hi Or did you mean the sudden attack of 100500 million tomahawks with the support of more than 9000 abrams to Moscow? winked

    Afghanistan was occupied several times, but no one was able to keep it. Amer will officially leave. The troops will be withdrawn. But they will leave the residency, training camps for militants and so on, which, perhaps, is even worse than the fact that they are there, tk. all this shobla ... blah will begin to creep to the sides across the region with missions to change regimes from dictatorial to "democratic". Chaos will follow the regime change. hi

    Forewarned - armed! Knowing the enemy’s plans - it is necessary to build your own military POLICY, develop tactical responses to possible actions (calculate steps as possible), and not just pump the army with new types of weapons, which, in a given set of circumstances, will prove useless. All this can become useless with the simultaneous destruction of military infrastructure, disruption of relations between the leadership and individual units. I am not a pessimist, on the contrary .. laughing And it’s clear that if anything, we’ll leave for the forests soldier to derail steam locomotives .. fellow We are talking about command centers (and a single center), which can cut off from command and control.

    most likely they will do so, spinning along the lines of how they got out of the Great Depression.

    It is inconceivable to myself how many money they spend to kill people.
