29
The United States donated almost 400 military bases totaling $ 858 million to the Afghan government, reports TASS Post Office head of the Pentagon inspector carrying out the ministry oversight.




"The transfer of real estate to the National Defense and Security Forces of Afghanistan has become part of the funds that the United States provides to the Afghan government as part of efforts to rebuild the country," the report said.

It is noted that the Pentagon in Afghanistan still has real estate, estimated at $ 48 million. True, it "is either destroyed or abandoned."

According to the Chief Inspector's report, the United States is “prohibited from selling surplus property” to the Afghan government, which was the reason for the “donation”.

“During the war in the country, the US command had 715 bases in Afghanistan. Since 2010 February 2015 Pentagon gave to the Afghan authorities 391 base 219 closed and six more at the disposal of other US agencies. Thus, the army of Afghanistan received 225 bases for its use, the police - 118, other government structures - 48. At the same database 115 received the Afghan armed forces, have a tactical purpose - on their territory can be positioned military forces with a large number of personnel "- leads TASS report content.

In turn, the deputy head of the Pentagon aide Christine Abizaid noted: "The transfer of property reduces costs US and provides funds to the Afghan government, which can be used for a variety of purposes, including commercial use or transfer of the people of Afghanistan."

    This is good of course, but the main thing is different, so that all military property does not accidentally fall into al-Qaeda, any Taliban and their brothers in hot spots.

      "Irokez" the main thing is different, so that all military equipment does not accidentally fall into al-Qaeda "
      Dear, that's understandable. But anything can be expected from white and furry elves. "According to the report of the chief inspector, the United States is" prohibited from selling surplus property "to the Afghan government, which was the reason for the" donation. "
      Maybe it’s all started to be conveyed to terrorists. Under a specious excuse.

      But the USSR left schools, hospitals and factories, their so-called bases for the most part were posts, and the loot was cut.

        They not only sawed, they also bought mansions, which will also probably be "handed over" to whoever they should.

        I read that they built a real American highway, only there is no one to drive on it. But the bases were built according to all American standards, who needs your Mac Ducks in Afghanistan?

      Either the Soviet Union, when he left Afghanistan, then left roads, industrial enterprises, social welfare facilities (schools, clinics, etc.). Even there remained house-building plants for large-panel construction!

        "The US donated nearly 400 military bases to the Afghan government for a total of $ 858 million." And drugs were raised and sold for billions.

    "During the hostilities in the country, the US command had 715 bases in Afghanistan. From 2010 to February 2015, the Pentagon gave 391 bases to the Afghan authorities, closed 219 and transferred six more to other US departments."

    Considering that there were about 33 thousand Americans in Afghanistan, it turns out that at each "base" there were less than 50 people. What is this "base" or translation difficulties? Is every checkpoint a base? request

        EMNIP, a typical "base" is a few dozen very rusty 40-foot containers stuffed with earth, many "Hesko" sacks (?) With the same earth, a couple of kilometers of barbed wire and a barn for 30-50 people. All the money that could be stolen has already been stolen during the construction of these "bases". Almost all major military facilities were built by the Union and slightly repaired with mattresses, also with cuts and kickbacks ... wink
        Accordingly, the transfer of these "bases" to the Afghan government - "actions to cover up theft on an especially large scale"! hi
        IMHO

    We in Syria, having 2 bases, crumbled Daesh, and these, having 400, on the contrary, produced the Taliban, mattresses are mattresses. And in general, wherever you come with your help, there is chaos and instability everywhere, in Afghanistan you generally surpassed yourself, how did you get there, drug traffic has grown 40 times!

    "The transfer of real estate to the National Defense and Security Forces of Afghanistan has become part of the funds that the United States provides to the Afghan government as part of its reconstruction effort."
    Set up dugouts, trenches with showers and toilets, and now give them to the military and police. So the country is being restored.

    And what exactly is the US military base? Frame-panel buildings, fence with fencing and asphalt area. A chrome-plated pillar in the center for the solemn raising of the mattress topper. Where is the power supply from? Diesel Generator or Aboriginal? They gave it away according to the principle "You can take what we no longer need."

      Altona! 15.47. And what are the Afghanistan-US economic relations? Is the US helping? How? What is their help? Protecting poppy fields and drug trafficking? Strange help in rebuilding the country. How many years is the help, but the result is not visible. Where is the development of the economy? Give loans for the purchase of amerskih goods? So they support their economy in this way. Paying for land under the bases? And the entire infrastructure works on this base, and ultimately again on the elves. Passing old equipment? Dispose of and still probably require a fee for disposal. The same diesel generator is clearly not made in Afghanistan, but elves. In general, a good testing ground for equipment and its disposal. And the aborigines at the same time probably still have not welded, but still have to stay! Or is Afghanistan lending to the US? Yes, it seems like quite the opposite. Business, business and business again!

    Something that is not noticeable is this assistance in the fight against the Taliban, and more bandits with ISIS were added. America, as always: a lot of noise, but no sense.

    Do the Afghans need "it"? They should now be kept and "populated" by whom, the Taliban?
    Okay, 400 schools, hospitals or factories.

    And if they are also abandoned and destroyed by 48 million will be transferred? That's how petty it is! Even the ruins count! And even the ruins cost money! Is it pragmatism or greed?
