    East is a delicate matter request
    First: how government forces differ from the "destroyed" militants. These are the same gangs, groups, clans request
    Secondly: was there a boy? Is there a simple desire to pass off Wishlist as a fact, so to show their capabilities request
    And thirdly: doubts arise in the words of government officials - not later than a couple of days ago, they announced the possibility of recognizing the Taliban and the beginning of negotiations with them request

    A bunch of questions, no answers request

      East is a delicate matter

      No thinner than a silk thread. Looking at history, you need to see that THEY want to live in their own way. And to draw a conclusion from this: Afghanistan will always remain Afghanistan. Neither England, nor the USSR, nor the "striped" ones will ever do anything with it. In the same way as with RUSSIA!

      Retired Afghan General Javid Kohistani believes that IS fighters were transported to the north of the country by NATO aircraft.
      “Photos of helicopters have been published that allegedly land ISIS fighters on the hills, and MPs have raised this issue more than once,” he said in an interview with Afghanistan.Ru.
      In the same way, he said, there is cooperation between the West and the Taliban.
      "This is evidenced by the takeoffs and landings of NATO aircraft and the supply of weapons in some provinces, including Kunduz and Baghlan. Even Hamid Karzai once mentioned that the planes are supplying the Taliban," says Javid Kohistani. "Obviously, the intelligence services have the same information. northern neighbors, as they have repeatedly observed unidentified planes landing near their borders in northern Afghanistan. "
      According to him, when the deputies of the Afghan parliament asked this question to NATO officials, they replied that flights were carried out as part of the fight against drugs.
      "It was not so. On these planes the militants were delivered from the south to the north of Afghanistan, to the border of the Central Asian countries," Kohistani said.
      On the other hand, according to Tajik security expert Sulton Hamad, there are Taliban supporters in the government of the neighboring country who secretly support them.
