Deputy Governor of Helmand Province (Afghanistan) declares that the Taliban are close to taking control of the province

17
Information Agency Xinhua spreads the message that the Taliban fighters succeeded, after several days of stubborn fighting with the Afghan government army, to take control of one of the key areas in Helmand province. The deputy head of the province of Mohammadjan Rasulyar stated that over the past two days at least 90 Afghan soldiers and law enforcement officers were killed in fighting in the Sangin and Gereshk counties.


As a result of the fighting, Sangin County is completely controlled by the Taliban. Moreover, the Afghan security officials, who have exhausted their ammunition for conducting more or less active resistance, are surrounded by 150. Rasulyar reports that if in the coming hours other units of the army and law enforcement officers locked in a ring by Afghan soldiers and policemen, the militants simply liquidate the group surrounded by Sangin.

Afghan authorities report extremely tense situation in Gereshk and Vash counties. In Gereshk, the Taliban are increasing the number of strikes against army personnel and are moving deeper, capturing more and more new buildings and territories.

Deputy Governor of Helmand Province (Afghanistan) declares that the Taliban are close to taking control of the province


The deputy governor of Helmand province, in which, by the way, is the largest American military contingent on Afghan territory, appeals to official Kabul with a request to throw additional forces into the province. At the same time, Rasulyar notes that the Taliban suffered significant losses in Gereshk and Vashir. According to his information - 87 killed. According to Rasulyar, the situation can still be reversed if the leading fights with the Taliban are helped by the police and military personnel, otherwise the entire province may be under the control of the Taliban movement.

    everything is calm in Afghanistan — the war has been going on for centuries ... they have fought and will continue to fight — either with the invaders (by default) or with themselves, the mentality of such a warlike people already ...

      Everything, as always during the day, is controlled by the government officially, and unofficially and always the true owner, some kind of local buy.

      It is not entirely true that the Afghans fought and are fighting no more often than the surrounding peoples, and often even were the sedentary center through which the warlike invaders passed, and the loser generals retreated there to heal the wounds and recruit the army. But they are fighting the invaders depending on who.

      Afghan Taliban destroy Daesh militants from the very beginning, as soon as they tried to enter Afghanistan and begin their campaign there. Between these groups there is a serious war under which the Taliban created a special unit of special forces in the amount of 1000 sabers. This unit is armed, supplied and paid much better than the rest of the Taliban. This indicates the severity of hostility.

      In general, in my opinion, if the Taliban cleanse the Afghan government from the existing government and thereby avert the Amers, everyone will be better off.

      There, every gopher is an agronomist, that is, everyone who has 10 machine guns and 20 mahmuds to them - a sheikh or a shah. As in Georgia - every ragged man is a prince. Therefore, it turns out - "those Taliban are swearing, and these Taliban are not swearing ..." But the essence is the same - at every opportunity, poke staff members in a mug - you fed them, you think what to do next with them. Yes, quickly. And then we remember how you behaved in the 80s in Pak and just make friends with Mexico, for example. And then the guide will be "American" Texas and California? Show them, blahamuha, Texas !!!

    And the “democratizers" of all mankind are protecting themselves. At least they imitated the struggle, and even too many questions already arise among the Americans themselves. And so they are fighting global evil in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria.

        The data is true, not the "last harvest", but nonetheless iconic. It was especially amusing that 7,6 lard of raccoons was drunk somewhere, and the crops were breaking records ... laughing
        The total acreage of opium poppy plantations found in Afghanistan in 2013 amounted to 209 thousand hectares, breaking the previous record of 2007 (193 thousand hectares).

        According to John Sopko, Inspector General for Reconstruction of Afghanistan (SIGAR), in 2014, opium poppy production in the IRA reached unprecedented levels. These negative trends occur despite the fact that over the past 13 years, the United States (that is, after the invasion of the United States) allocated $ 7,6 billion to reduce crops.

        These funds were used to organize the fight against drugs and financial assistance to poppy-growing peasants in the Afghan provinces, who they wanted to stimulate to switch to growing other plants. According to the UN, in 2013 the level of drug production in Afghanistan rose to record levels - 5,5 thousand tons of opium poppy for a total value of $ 3 billion, which is 50 percent higher than the previous year.
        And also the iconic surname of the main American "restorer" of Afghanistan - Sopko. A special, I would say, surname. Hence the questions disappear, where did 7,6 lard go ... "Have you not seen? No? Well, no, as they say, and there is no trial ..." (c)

    The Taliban can regain control of the country. The Americans left the contingent there. I hope the Americans now have their own headache, which will distract from us.

    The USSR could not cope with the Taliban in Afghanistan because they were helped by the Americans. And what prevented the Americans from coping with the Taliban? Russia did not help the Taliban. What prevented Americans from dealing with daish in Iraq and Syria? It would be good if the Americans should pile on lyuley once. So that they have no hope that for their lawlessness they will be able to sit out overseas.

      The following interconnected things prevent Americans from destroying the Taliban:
      No respect for the customs of the local population, which supports the Taliban.
      Poppy plantations, which are guarded by the forces of the government army, which is supported by the Americans.
      Unwillingness to withdraw their forces from Afghanistan, which will lead to an immediate fall of the existing government and loss of control over the country and poppy plantations.
      In connection with the above reasons, there is no desire to destroy the Taliban as a phenomenon, because there is no need to keep their forces there, which are the guarantor of the retention of power of the existing government ...
      And so in a circle ...

    The USSR did not "cope" with the Taliban. The so-called Taliban movement surfaced after the withdrawal of the 40th Army from Afghanistan.
    What prevents to cope with the Taliban ?? I think the Taliban themselves because the population sometimes supports entire provinces, but they put them on the central Kabul. Yes, and the “new” Afghan army in its repertoire, let’s recall the “tsaranda” - day after night against us.

    Well, if Helmand, then there is still some time before they trample to Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan.
