Hamid Karzai will be left alone with the Taliban

Hamid Karzai will be left alone with the Taliban

A possible change in the US strategy in Afghanistan was reported by The New York Times, citing informed sources in Washington and Kabul. According to them, the final decision has not yet been made, but the idea of ​​the complete withdrawal from the country of all US troops is becoming more and more supporters in the administration.


The last straw that overcame Barack Obama's patience was his conversation with Hamid Karzai on June 27 via videoconference. The conversation clearly did not work out - the president of Afghanistan accused the US authorities of seeking to conclude a separate peace agreement with the Taliban, disregarding the views of the official Kabul.

For its part, the United States is dissatisfied with the conditions put forward by Mr. Karzai. The leader of Afghanistan, first, requires a clear identification of the number of troops remaining in the country after 2014. Secondly, insists that Washington undertakes to strike at the Taliban bases in Pakistan, including after the withdrawal of the main contingent of the international coalition. Third, Hamid Karzai wants the US to adopt a long-term funding program for the Afghan army and security forces. Otherwise, Kabul does not agree to sign a security treaty with the United States. Such links, quite reminiscent of blackmail, cause undisguised irritation in Washington.

If the Barack Obama administration gives preference to the “zero option”, leaving Mr. Karzai without military assistance, the fate of the government in Kabul seems bleak. According to experts, the Afghan security forces are not ready to confront the Taliban themselves, who in many provinces seized the initiative now, not waiting for the withdrawal of international forces.

In this regard, there are analogies with the fate of President Mohammad Najibullah, an ally of Moscow. After the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan in February 1989, his regime lasted just over three years. Despite the fact that Najibullah had at its disposal a completely combat-ready army, which managed to independently win several major victories over the Mujahideen, especially in the summer of 1989.

From the troops of Hamid Karzai, very few people are expecting such feats. Experts fear that in the event of a complete withdrawal of Americans, a regime change in Kabul may occur rapidly. The bill will go not for years, as in the case of Mr. Najibullah, but for months or even weeks.

    Karzai is now one road-suitcase / airport / alternate airport in the United States or Europe. Moreover, the money accumulated from the drug trade is a good increase in retirement.

    I see no reason for gloating. It is necessary to wait not for the imminent demise of the Karzai regime, but for an increase in drug trafficking in the Russian Federation, aggravation of conflict situations in the "soft underbelly" of Russia and further radicalization of the Russian Islamists.

    Afghanistan is a warring country, warring tribes do not know how to live differently and there is nothing to meddle in their internal affairs.
    Russia should be concerned about maintaining its influence in the Asian border countries and increasing the constant control of drug trafficking.

      Taken from here

      http://kino.oper.ru/torture/read.php?t=1045689085

      The fable that “in the whole history no one has ever managed to conquer Afghanistan” has no real soil under it. First you need to find out: what exactly is there to conquer? I answer: in a mountainous country inhabited by primitive tribes living in caves, there is nothing to conquer.

      Yes, trade routes pass through Afghanistan. Yes, it is advisable not to let the locals rob these trade routes. Yes, for this they must be killed - they do not understand another treatment. And, of course, we must not forget about the geopolitical importance of these territories. For example, for Russia.

      Who successfully fought in Afghanistan? Yes, everyone who was not lazy. For example, "Uzbek" Babur. Evil Tatars from the Volga region attacked Babur (yeah, our Tatars are like that) and under the leadership of Sheybani Khan they attacked him from the Ferghana Valley (yes, our Tatars will get anywhere and pour it on everyone they reach). Babur passed fire and a sword through Afghanistan, killed all and killed everyone. But since there is nothing in Afghanistan, he went to India, where he organized the Mughal dynasty. Of course, the Afghans are firmly convinced that it was they who defeated and drove off Babur.

      And here was another incident - in 1878, the second Afghan war began, which was fought by the British. To begin with, subjects of the British Empire sent a note to the then ruler of Afghanistan, Sherali, in which they said that they did not like his pro-Russian position. Please note: the British. Where is Britain, and where is Afghanistan? Is it all the same to the British, with whom the primitive Afghans are friends? It turns out that it’s all the same, they care about everything, and the British do not like the pro-Russian sentiments in Afghanistan. And the United States needs Afghanistan, and now there are US troops. And only to idiots from among the Soviet intellectuals and their children, it does not matter who stands near our borders.

      Easily. Several thousand Chinese are resettled, areas with predominantly Chinese populations are emerging, troops are being deployed that do not stop at half measures, acting on the principle of "cutting everyone like that." No high-precision weapons for the sake of "killing the peacemaker" in general, no attempts to play humanism. The Government of Pakistan will not go anywhere, it will do whatever China says, the US will not take them back, it’s too late. The perfume camps in Pakistan will be dispersed, the supply of weapons and ammunition will stop (for weapons came from China), and in ten years there will be an ordinary Chinese province like Tajikistan ...
      PS: the Chinese are cunning, at first they helped the spirits against the USSR, then against the USA, swept Afghanistan from the north and south, almost squeezed the USA out of Pakistan, and Russia from Central Asia ...

    -The conversation clearly did not work out - the president of Afghanistan accused the US authorities of striving to conclude a separate peace agreement with the Taliban, not taking into account the views of official Kabul.
    It’s just a “competition” - who is the first to make peace with the Taliban. It is possible that each side is in talks with different Taliban factions.
    Alas, there is no ONE Afghanistan. No Leader is foreseen who could unite the country. The best option is to create a pair / triple of new states. The Russian Federation then it makes sense to support not the Pashtuns, but the Northern Alliance as a barrier to the Taliban.

    Now Afghanistan is a bomb, and Russia is in the radius of destruction. Moreover, the bomb is at least with a binary charge. There is no “sapper” on the world stage that could defuse her! And this is sad!
    Moreover, the United States and China, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates are still laying it directly or secretly. And the "anthrax" drug lords, weapons barons, slafites.

    There is another. Like Adik with a bang. But hardly. The gut is thin.


    Are you talking about adolf aloizovich shiklgruber? Well, Mr. Karzai is not so impulsive. So it's unlikely to put a bullet in his temple

    Can hit the vein with poppy seeds!

      no, it’s an American way to bring chaos, and then wreak havoc with democracy, and, moreover, American, then into a ditched and killed country.

    if Karzai is left alone with the Taliban, Mohammad Nadzhibullah’s unenviable fate awaits him. Well, they would torture and kill, but they will gobble it up. Humans have tasted it in Syria, which means they have come to taste.

    Amer is well aware that at 60-70000 the group was far from victory and at 30000 it would only get worse. Locked on the bases of a few Americans, they will be enthusiastically cutting gangs of various kinds. And all these conditions that Karzai put forward imply the full participation of the Americans in a useless slaughter, already from neighboring territories, seas. Because amers and jump completely. Karzai rules Kabul and the environs of Kabul, and even then only during the day. And after the departure of the amers, the USA alone is dear to him. Najibb held out because the hunchback supported him with weapons. And when we left at the outposts we left monthly food supplies and 7-8 b / c and all DShK, BMP. I have the fourth platoon on the BMP and that's all left. And in Termez, day and night, trains went over the river with cartridges. Dostum and Hekmatyar are already old, there new wolves have grown up among Uzbeks, Tajiks and Pashtuns.

    Karzai sshatam is not only not a comrade, he is not even near-walled.
    Amer reached the goal. And they leave quite satisfied with themselves.
    Ample opportunities were pumped from the borders of Russia and China to the Taliban, they created a terrorist incubation zone for decades, planted a whole region on drug trafficking with deliveries of the “product” to Russia.
    What else is needed to look from the side, but to rejoice?

      Sergey, hi ! good ! +++ I agree. Hamid Karzai worked to the fullest in terms of the "democratization" of Afghanistan: the land - to the peasants (under poppy, of course). Weapons - to field commanders. Heroin - to the working people of neighboring countries. This is true European democracy. The Taliban turned out to be intractable in the issue of transit of Caspian gas, which the Unical oil monopoly (USA) decided to organize. After seizing power, who became the president of the country? Hamid Karzai is a former full-time adviser to Unical, which has signed a transit agreement on favorable terms for the company. Heroin production, of course, went up, increasing almost 40 times. Moreover, the drug business was a family affair: the dead brother of President Vali Karzai was known as one of the most influential drug dealers. US finances are beginning to sing romances, to maintain such a contingent in Afghanistan, and not only there, the world gendarme could not afford. But the Moor has done his job, what is the answer in your comment

    Najibula was a capable leader and the army was, but traitors came to power in the USSR and Russia, who turned fuel supplies into Afghanistan and everything fell into place. The Taliban and Hekmatyar, who came to power, said many thanks to Gaidar Nemtsov, EBN and his followers. Damn them.

    It seems to me that our president could also start separate negotiations with the Taliban, backroom games, deftly covering this with a desire to work out a national reconciliation of the Afghans ........

    In general, Afghanistan is a wild country. My own uncle once served in the OKSV, saw everyone there. The best, in my opinion, way to stop the spread of infection on our southern borders:
    "Who threw the tarpaulin on the remote ?!"
    "I, Comrade Warrant Officer."
    "Well, I understand - to hell with him, with Afghanistan, but there must be discipline in the army!"

    Probably Karzai now understands well that no one has managed to be friends with the CIA on an equal footing. Always "merge" at the right time. Now even poppy plantations won't help

    If Hunchback had not betrayed Najibul, he would still be in Kabul. I needed a regular set of fuel, ammunition, weapons, advisers. I would do the rest myself. And today, 100% of Afghanistan would be more industrialized and developed than now.
