US official: Afghanistan cannot function independently, either militarily or financially

The US Inspector General for the reconstruction of Afghanistan criticized the American programs of restoring the Islamic Republic, saying that Afghanistan is not able to function independently either militarily or financially, despite the fact that Washington is investing about 110 billions of dollars in it.

US official: Afghanistan cannot function independently, either militarily or financially


“Both planning and execution were terrible,” Sopko quotes the newspaper "Sight".

First of all, the official drew attention to the lack of personal responsibility for such failures among US officials, as well as to the “terrifying coordination (of actions) between the Pentagon, the US State Department and the Agency for International Development.”

“Do I foresee the stage when we (the USA) will be able to leave (from Afghanistan)?” Maybe. However, it cannot be excluded that this will not happen in my lifetime, ”he stressed.

According to him, Afghanistan is still “facing enormous problems with its budget,” the revenue part of which is “less than 2 billions (dollars).”

“To keep the country afloat, it takes from 8 billion to 10 billion,” said Sopko.

According to the official, if Washington stops helping Kabul, then "the collapse of the (Afghan) government will happen." In addition, he is confident that the Afghans will not be able to "support the military side of the mechanism that functions without our help."

          The USSR brought in troops in accordance with the agreement and the request of the government (at that time). What do you think is the difference in "meaning"? And the mattresses control
          every fraction of a second, if any, the meaning, “the word is profit?” So, everything is positive, in history! And he remembers this, "peaceful" (to whom the world is not indifferent, and the world remembers) Afghan!

        It never came out, except for the replacement of the Bur-303 rifle with the Kalash and the Pendos rifles. “Due to the high air vacuum, the AK-74 showed completely unsatisfactory dispersion rates. The military was at a loss: why was the costly rearmament necessary? In addition, southerners have a lower pain threshold and the AK-74 was less effective than the AKM. Afghans, who were armed with "Boers", could effectively shoot at a great distance .. They had to use Mosin rifles taken from the warehouses "

    How old is the state of Afghanistan and how much is the United States. And these malacholnye will still teach life.
    The waves will swallow the statue with the torch, and Afghanistan will continue to go its own way.

      If I am not mistaken, at the end of the XNUMXs, there were statistics on Afghanistan, for the well-known history of this state, there were no hostilities on its territory, a ridiculous figure "about five months.

      Itself saboy .. Afgan people are harsh and independent. (No one could subordinate him yet) .. And in Ukraine there is a war against Russia The USA is worth nothing .. The main promise, well, the Hamers put up a fight and praise Obama! Afghans still since then, the Shuravi remember with a kind word .. They knew how to fight and tried to build something, etc. They felt the difference, as they say .. hi

    “Do I foresee a stage when we (USA) will be able to leave (from Afghanistan)? Maybe. However, it cannot be ruled out that this will not happen during my life, ”he stressed Is it by chance that this bastard is preparing world opinion to make Afghanistan another state? If yes, I am for both hands. Let them get a share of adrenaline, again in New York. wink

    A disguised call to stay in Afghanistan forever. It is difficult, it turns out, to part with amers with the proceeds from the sale of heroin. They invested so much effort, the volume of production was raised the way it was, and then a bummer - you need to leave.

    An interesting statement. It is only necessary to clarify which Afghanistan. For the tribes lived for thousands of years with childbirth before Afghanistan, they will live thousands of years without it. Today, the American Afghanistan, this is the center of Kabul, with its capital in the Green Zone, and the camps in the provinces for which communication must be paid, to the same tribes.

    Afghanistan is unable to function independently, either militarily or financially, despite Washington investing about $ 110 billion in it

    And this is because: "All the gifts of the" exclusive "are plundered by the" exclusive "and exclusively for themselves."
    And the Afghan people act here in the role of a "big-eared frayer" who stands in front of a "thimbler" who strenuously demonstrates to him the "circulation of money in nature" while his accomplices "the big-eared fraer" clean their pockets.



    I twist and twist, nay .. I want. This is what "financial aid" "Western partners" is for the underdeveloped countries of Asia and Africa.

    There is a very simple way for Afghanistan to replenish the treasury.
    Introduce taxes on opium fields.
    That is, to officially legalize.
    For example, they suggested that Colombian drug cartels pay the entire state debt.

    The most important thing is that American sponsors would not send mujahideen to the southern borders of Russia, because amer’s generosity fireworks usually end and then the attack of a lured beast on Russia begins (this was the case with Japan (1905), and Germany (1941) and Georgia (2008) )

    And by and large, they never came out of there, there is now 13 years ... something.
    The USSR came, like the sprouts of civilization brought, and as soon as the shuravi left, everything returned.
    Their bombs do not bombs teach, do not teach one hell they will ride on donkeys, well, they don’t need civilization, even if they crack you, they need a camel, they need a camel and they need a poppy.
