Afghan Defense: American contingent returned to Helmand

21
The division of American troops again settled on its former base in Helmand (southern Afghanistan), reports RIA News a message from the representative of the Afghan military department Ismatullah Daulyatzaya.




“The detachments of the American military returned to their former base Shorabak. Despite the fact that I do not know the exact number of the military, their presence will contribute to the improvement of security and economic well-being in the region, ”said Daulietzai to Tolo News.

According to him, "the number of arriving contingent - about 800 troops."

In turn, the head of the province added that "the US military will not participate in military operations, but will be engaged in the preparation of the Afghan national security forces."

The agency reminds that in the fall of 2014, the US Marines, after the official completion of their mission in Afghanistan, left the base in Helmand, transferring it to the local security forces.

          Quote from Wikipedia:
          Helmand Province is the largest producer of opium.
          As reported in the 2007 annual report on the production of opium poppy in Afghanistan by the UN Committee on Drugs (UNODC), the planted area of ​​opium poppy in the province was 103 thousand hectares. [3]

          So they came back.

      Probably they have problems if they have to look at the local population through a fence with a thorn. laughing

    It’s difficult to remotely control the Afghan drug traffic, so they returned.

    Something about the Nobel Peace Prize has not been heard for a long time.


    The Nobel Peace Prize - awarded with honors to the main world-creator of the planet!

    What am I saying: - are there still institutions that are not politicized?

    OSCE ??? Red Cross? UN? Greenpeace ?? Omnisty figovisti? Human rights?



    How many more errands will be in the service?

    Greenpece - got to the bottom of our "prirazlomnaya", when, like in Arezon, the rivers dry up from experiments on oil production - there they are not heard at all. But uhh, the terrible Russian oil in the Arctic is pumping OWN, in compliance with all norms! by the way! But no, ... in Fergusson on the second day of the riots - water cannons and gas, armored vehicles, snipers. But damn in Moscow they packed a dozen white tape and? - howl to the whole planet !!!! (into the garden! with their presentations, two-faced!)

    Of course, the Yankees returned to the province, where it is relatively calm. But from the provinces of Paktia, Paktika, Gardez, Birkot and the other most restless, their legs were cowardly taken away. fellow
