The head of the Taliban, Akhtar Mansur, is most likely destroyed in Pakistan on Saturday during an attack by American drones, reports Interfax Post BBC, referring to a source in the Pentagon.


Who was destroyed by American UAVs in Pakistan: the Taliban leader or a peaceful taxi driver?


“Several UAVs attacked two people moving in a car in the Pakistani-Afghan border area. The command is convinced that Mansur was most likely among them ",
said the source.

“Another militant was also killed during the attack, civilians were not injured,” he added.

According to another source, "an air strike on the Taliban leader was sanctioned by US President Barack Obama."

However, the military does not have full confidence in the destruction of Mansur - they continue to analyze the results of the strike.

At the same time, according to the local TV channel Samaa, the victims of the attack were not terrorists, but the usual taxi driver and his passenger.

“The bodies of the two dead were taken to a hospital in Nushki district, near Ahmad-Valem,” the channel reported.

It is specified that "according to the documents found, the taxi driver was called Muhammad Azam, and his passenger was Wali Muhammad". Known and taxi number - ALL-570.

In addition, information about the death of Mansur was denied by the representative of the Taliban.
“We heard these unsubstantiated messages, but this is not the first time. I want to share my own data, according to which Mullah Mansur was not killed ",
he told Reuters.

    Brave warriors mattress, every day they kill the leader of the barmaley. Only for verification it turns out that all this is happening in their imagination. As the saying goes, "The main thing is to crow, and then at least don't dawn."

        P.S. Obama will substitute if a simple taxi driver has suffered, because:
        "The air strike on the Taliban leader was sanctioned by US President Barack Obama."

      Oddly enough, but it is better that it was a taxi driver. belay Or the yoke in Afghanistan will sharply become stronger and the danger from the side of the Afghan for us will increase. IS there is a part of the Taliban who took the oath of ig after the death of Mullah Lobster. Mansur actively fought with ig and more than once tried to negotiate with us. so we even wanted to exclude the Taliban from the list of terrorists. That is, the states removed the leader of the militants, who went on negotiations with us. So without his authority, many Taliban will run to ig. The Afghan army is now a dummy that only costs something while the mattresses hang out there. Without external support, the ig will break them and then Afghanistan war 2.0 is already possible for us.

    They also "destroyed" the leader of al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, fifty times, and he lived happily for many years until one of his entourage betrayed him.
    The Americans are better at destroying hospitals, cyclists and excavators than a real fight against terrorists.
    But they are painstakingly silent about the obvious successes of our air forces in Syria, or smearing them with dirt, cooking up dirty articles that accuse them of the deaths of thousands of Syrians from Russian air strikes.

    The leadership of the Taliban extremist group, banned in many countries of the world, confirms the death of Mullah Akhtar Mansur. Mullah Abdul Rauf told about it, reports Associated Press.

      He won’t make out there! After the Americans killed 2011 Pakistani soldiers in November 24, Pakistan quickly, in April 2012 banned the transit of military cargo through its territory. In the winter of this year, there were reports on the VO that Pakistan wants to conclude contracts from the Russian Federation for the supply of weapons. This is all I know. I only know that the United States rotates its contingent through Saudi Arabia by air.

    Well, the Americans are in their own style: the main thing is to crow all over the world, but whether this is true or false is the second thing. Then, looking away, mutter mumbled that, they say, a mistake came out.

      One of the liveliest topics for discussion is the operation of the United States Armed Forces in Afghanistan. We are talking about the attack of American drones in the border area between Afghanistan and Pakistan. The purpose of the airstrike was to destroy the leader of the Taliban group, Akhtar Mansur. However, this time the “miracle” of American aircraft construction also “distinguished itself”: after cleansing the territory from the air, Pakistani media reported that the US Army mission failed miserably: instead of the radical, drones destroyed the taxi driver and later, one of the Taliban representatives issued a statement to the Reuters news agency, where he confirmed the words of Pakistani journalists. And here the most interesting part begins: a little later with The opposite statement is made by one of the commanders of the Taliban radical Islamist movement, Mullah Abdul Rauf, in which he talks about the liquidation of the leader of the Mullah Akhtar Mansur group by the US Army. The question is: so, what happened there? Who did the American drones kill? It’s logical that you need to ask them yourself, but at the Pentagon they just shrug their fingers and report that the results of the operation are in the evaluation stage and the exact information is still missing. The following situation turns out: the US Air Force launched an air strike on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, and now they are trying to figure out where exactly and to whom they got. A small analysis allows us to allow the following version to be as realistic as possible: the US Air Force did not eliminate the leader of the group, destroying the car instead and two passengers on bortu.Ne think the situation in the "Taliban" have decided to declare the failure of the US military, but later thought: "Why? After all, if they know the truth, then attempts to destroy the leader will continue. So why not palm off the States a profitable lie for them, passing it off as truth? ”It will be easier for proud American pros to assess the situation and name victims among civilians as rumors, declare Mansur dead, and put“ + ”in the column for the destruction of terrorist leaders. This version allows us to believe that this is not the first case of missed American drones. And this is not just a breakdown of the system, it is a consistently low indicator of efficiency. Terrifying statistics speaks for itself. After the 2001 year, when the administration of George W. Bush decided to use unmanned flying objects, more than 4 000 civilians died due to erroneous drone attacks. In Pakistan, UAV attacks claimed the lives of almost 2 500 people, a third of whom are children. In 2013, Yemen suffered the most from the deadly attacks of American drones.

      PS By the way, both the Taliban and Pakistani sources already confirm that the "taxi driver" Mansur glued his flippers together. We can congratulate the Americans on their success.

    You listen to how they are trying to restore order and democracy around the world, to become sick.
    What laws are used to kill people using UAVs, how to relate to the death of a taxi driver, even if he brought up the leader of a terrorist cell?
    Americans don’t like to answer such questions. More and more, the policy of the Americans themselves is reminiscent of open piracy, even if the US flag is hanging on the ship!
