Military Review

Obama gave the nod to the application of air strikes on the grouping of the IG in Afghanistan

31
The President of the United States allowed air strikes against the grouping of the DAISH (IG) in Afghanistan - as well as the positions of al-Qaeda, reports RIA News Post Washington Post.




The newspaper notes that "the new powers will allow American troops to more actively strike at the IS".

"Previously, the use of force was allowed only in relation to Al-Qaida, as well as to protect and assist the Afghan military," reminds WP. About building up military forces in Afghanistan says nothing.

The Obama decision "became known a few days after the State Department officially announced the inclusion of the Khorasan group in the list of banned terrorist organizations in Afghanistan," the newspaper said.

At the same time, the Pentagon is trying not to publicly mention the growing influence of the IG in the republic, on the contrary, the command declares the weakness of the group. Thus, the deputy head of the US headquarters in Afghanistan, Wilson Shoffner, told reporters on Tuesday that "IS militants act periodically and they do not have the ability to organize and conduct operations simultaneously in more than one part of the country."

        Khorasan is some Japanese name.
        There is no one in Afghanistan.
        Yes, let them destroy everything and everyone there.
        Afghan under amers for a long time.
        So they will get what they wanted from their owners.
        After all, the Amerians under the wing of an airplane carry the world to everyone everywhere)))
        The Japs won't let them lie - they got Hiroshima and Nagasaki from the "peacekeepers".

        Doctors Without Borders get ready. And it’s better to unscrew from Afghanistan.

        Maybe our Government should think about it and donate the S-300 to Doctors Without Borders? laughing And the wedding gift for the newlyweds - "Igloo"? American pilots will not be offended if they are reminded that the spirits have learned how to handle the Stingers in Afghanistan. Perhaps, and "Needles" will master ...

      Dark night...
      Hellfire flies through the gorge
      Another fire all night in the mountains
      Chasing the Taliban

      Poor Taliban
      He ran through the mountains all night
      But the evil fire caught up with him
      I stuck in a sissy ass ...

        Morning has come
        But the Taliban was no longer alive
        Lying under the mountain without breathing
        Near the fire lay

    The best refuge for Daesh (IS) and Al Qaeda in Afghanistan are the opium poppy plantations. Their US will not bomb

      You can add. The best refuge from the bombing for all of these terrorist groups, will be the territory of the pendostan with its capital in Washington!

    "The new powers will allow American troops to more actively strike at the IS."

    Well, it’s unlikely, and who will be involved in drug trafficking that they decided to stay for another ten years in Afghanistan.

    In Afghanistan, it is necessary to introduce a ban on all mass events in the country and introduce a requirement: do not go for more than two and do not gather for more than three.

    Stunned ... They’ve been fighting for a year and a half (at least they say that they’re fighting) with the bearded in Syria and Iraq, and in Afghanistan, therefore, it was impossible to touch them? ..

    I would be in the place of Afghan soldiers, already began to dig trenches for myself. because from friendly fire, a super accurate missile with an error of 1 meter, without a dugout there is no chance of survival. will strike with surgical precision. soldier beware.

    If before that, attacks on the IS were not inflicted, then the IS created greenhouse conditions. And now the child has grown, can I beat a little?

    The US policy around the world is based on the formula "If you can't, but you really want to, then you can." They tested it back in Yugoslavia, rest in peace to her: http://www.planetoday.ru/balkany-pod-paytinoi-cry/ Well, now they are improving.

    Knowing these ... artners, I can assume that they will "bomb" the road for ISIS plus the destabilization of the region (government troops and Taliban groups opposing ISIS, infrastructure, residential and social facilities)

    I have the honor
