The United States will send additional military forces to Afghanistan

40
Newspaper Guardian with reference to a Pentagon representative, reports that the United States is going to increase its military presence in Afghan territory. If you believe these reports, then we are talking about sending a few companies of American troops in Helmand. According to the representative of the Pentagon, the American soldiers will not participate in direct hostilities in the province, but will provide "assistance to the Afghan army in repelling attacks from the Taliban and instructing work." Sending will take place before the end of February.


The United States will send additional military forces to Afghanistan


American reports suggest that there are currently about 10 thousands of US military personnel in Afghanistan. The greatest forces are concentrated precisely in the province of Helmand. At the same time, it has recently been in this province that the attacks of Taliban movement groups on military units of the Afghan army and police have become more frequent. Thus, over the past few months, three of the 14 counties of Helmand Province have come under complete control of the Taliban. The Taliban also took control of the city of Lashkar Gah, which previously housed the administration of one of the Helmand counties.

It is worth noting that at the end of January, Pentagon chief Ashton Carter announced that the United States was "preparing for a long-term military presence in Afghanistan." At the same time, Carter did not say what kind of final goals for the American military contingent's presence in this country are put by Washington, and how close the States were to these goals for almost a decade and a half of the presence of American troops in Afghanistan ...

      Americans with fanfares withdrew troops. Now injected again. At the same time, they do not rattle much with music. Apparently there are not enough guards for drug plantations.

        A petition appeared on the White House website to open a criminal case on charges of US President Barack Obama in organizing terrorism and forward the materials to the Hague court for an international tribunal.

        The petition says that Libya was almost completely destroyed as a state “as a result of Obama’s aggression,” and one of the worst prisons in history - Guantanamo - continues to function, despite statements made earlier by the American authorities to eliminate it.

        They withdrew their troops from Iraq, with the exception of the Air Force, which allegedly today are participating in the "fight" with ISIS.
        In Afghanistan, they maintain a limited contingent to "train" the Afghan army and coordinate its actions. Although Obama promised their complete withdrawal, along the way, they realized that the Afghan army was incapacitated, and after the overseer left and the funding was cut off, tomorrow it will go over to the side of the Taliban or ISIS, destroying the pro-American government of Afghanistan and everything will return to the point from which the Americans they started, only perhaps with a great gravitation towards Russia, since they are now more trusted in this region.

      - Arlington Cemetery (as yet) has immense reserves. So all the current Afghan sitters on this territory may well have.

    Pay attention to where the Americans go
    The greatest forces are concentrated in Helmand province.
    Data on the cultivation / production of opiates in Afghanistan. Most drugs are produced in only one province - Helmand. There are no such accidents!

    They were going to withdraw at the beginning of the year, but now they are sending new forces ...
    Well, at least we would regret at least our own soldiers, although what to say for the USA is the norm to send our soldiers to another part of the globe to bring Democracy there!
    However, for what they fought and ran

    Yeah, but you just need to immediately clarify why "these few mouths" are sent
    don't go to your grandmother in order to train new terrorists. And then it was reduced in connection with the air strikes of the air forces.
    Afghanistan is a good springboard for this; there, compared to Syria, it’s relatively quiet now, which means you can still train militants for ISIS.

    ... In this case, Carter did not say what the final goals of the US military contingent’s stay in this country are set by Washington,

    Old goals - destabilization on our southern borders.
    I hope that the Yankees will not work out with the Taliban, and they will thin out the ranks of the "peacekeepers".

    Why did they article the article? In the comments, no one pointed out the specific flaws of the article. Or at VO materials are evaluated not by quality and content, but by the principle of like - not like. Maybe I missed something in the rules of the site?

      No, you haven’t missed anything. Plain article. Now, if all our enemies were exposed as complete idiots, then there would be more advantages. Primitively, but this is the place to be. See how they blame me for nepotriatism now.
      Yesterday I watched a satellite image of the Bagram airfield. Flew from there in February 89 at night with one of the last aircraft. When they took off, we could see how our living area was blazing. So, the airfield is now very much reconstructed. The scope was impressive.

    supposedly the main reason for the Yankees presence in Afghanistan is the control over the production of heroin and its drug trafficking around the world, and to Russia in particular, but in reality this Yankee presence is necessary for the purpose of controlling the entire Middle East, especially now when another redistribution is being played there again ...

    Judging by the photo, they not only protect the plantations of drugs, but also confidently use it.
