US attack helicopters attacked the Afghan army checkpoint

29
The US Army continues to “restore democratic order in Afghanistan.” At the same time, the American military contingent has practically not been involved in operations against militants lately, but it manages to "effectively fight" the Afghan army. For example, in the Afghan province of Logar, US Air Force helicopters launched a rocket attack on the Afghan army checkpoint, as a result of which at least 14 Afghan soldiers were killed.
The Pentagon is trying to justify itself as follows:

From intelligence information was obtained that the Taliban militants are concentrated in the area.


In the attack on the Afghan checkpoint, two attack helicopters of the US Air Force took part, the pilots of which did not bother themselves with the proceedings of who they were launching missiles for.

US attack helicopters attacked the Afghan army checkpoint


The head of the province confirmed the information about the death of 14 Afghan soldiers. He is quoted by the edition. The Express Tribune:
At 6: 00 in the morning hours today two US helicopters attacked a checkpoint in the Baraki Barak area.


A spokesman for the Afghan Defense Ministry said that the Afghan flag was flying over the roadblock, and he (a military official) did not understand how the American pilots could have overlooked this.

This is not the first case of the so-called "friendly fire" by the US military in Afghanistan.

        Sure! After all, Afghanistan is a huge exporter of cocaine, and during the occupation by the states of this country, Afghanistan became rightfully considered the WORLD exporter of drugs. And who is closest to Afghanistan and is a direct rival to the states? Russia! If after the Soviet troops the flow of drugs remained a small stream, now it is a full-flowing river!

          Cocaine ??? O_o can still heroin, opium and marijuana?
          As far as I know, they are grown there.
          In addition, since the US invasion, heroin production alone has grown by almost 20 times.

            The photo is enchanting, the corpses of the Afghan soldiers killed by the Americans are carried away by Afghan soldiers under the supervision of American soldiers.

        The US Army continues to "establish democratic order in Afghanistan."


        The introduction of democracy is not an easy job: difficult and complex.

          And not a single mongrel blather that this is US aggression ...
          Well, they messed up killed 14 citizens of another country with whom it does not happen, and without coordination with the first.
          US democracy, it is such a democracy ... But as the militants of the DPR and LPR will repulse the attack or God forbid a successful offensive with a rejection of the Armed Forces of Ukraine so immediately stink - Russia is an aggressor, remove the troops, it’s disgusting, as if the whole world went crazy and rational people just not left, only two-legged mammals, and even those sometimes asexual.

      But there is still a difference: they, of course, will not apologize, but they will have to shrug and shrug, and pay compensation, too.

        Amers had such a president, Bush Papa. So this daddy said that the States are always right whether they shot down or not shot down an Iranian Boeing. And about compensation is debatable, I’ll say.

      Hm From intelligence information was obtained that the Taliban militants are concentrated in the area. What the hell is this? American pilots can see BEAUTIFUL who they hit from their Apaches. So excuses that we didn’t see, that we didn’t think it was ... and profanity. Here is a video of how "Apache" pilots "Hunt" they see not just flags, they can easily see the weapons in the hands of those who are being hit, moreover, before striking, the pilot / gunner contacts the base directly and requests permission to open fire ...

    For mattresses, the difference between the Taliban and the Afghan army is vanishingly small. The Afghan army is the best goal. They don’t shoot back.

    They will also reward helicopter pilots. Was there a combat mission according to intelligence? Was. Have you worked successfully? And how! "Silver Star", pliz!

    The Afghans themselves are to blame, they played a double game in the 70s and 80s, with the USSR and the USA, these people have been enemies for a long time but they are fools, it was necessary to unite and not fight with the clans, the SChs are fighting on their field and they fools are proud of this, and they don’t think about children, about parenting, during the USSR, they helped the Afghans, built roads, hydroelectric power stations, platinum, medicine, infrastructure. They should continue to develop like the UAE and other Muslim countries, but no they are fools for life.

    I have no doubt that the Apache pilot saw the Afghan flag at the checkpoint. And I also have no doubt that when the pilot transmitted this information to the base and received confirmation of the opening of fire, nothing inside him trembled and did not ask the question "how, there are allies?"
    Americans by default consider Afghans to be third-class people, and their own or strangers are a completely different matter. They really do not care about this matter. Intelligence data is - is, a combat mission with the use of weapons has been entered into a private matter - has been entered. Oh, kay guys, relax, drink beer.

    Afghans would accidentally shoot down several US helicopters at once and say in case of proceedings, it’s not us, but the Taliban dressed in our uniforms.

    Fuck, Barracks ..... how many years have passed. So there amers had to iron the whole city. Even in our time it was a solid Dushman city. I wonder who is now grubbing in Soufflé, NATO or local. How interesting the puzzles are, when we freed Nasimkhan's caravans from excess biomass, and the "released" aid from American taxpayers was not distributed equally, but to be honest, now the sons of those same beards are stirring the American convoys themselves. Why, the Anglo-Saxons are not lucky in this part of the planet, their mulberries are constantly robbed, ay-ay-ay, where is the truth, people !?)
