      In fact, neighboring border guards within the same checkpoint live peacefully. There are some sort of personal showdown without politics.

    Yes, something incomprehensible. Maybe some kind of personality conflict. The guys are sharp, vindictive. Word for word, clan for clan and rushed to the top.

    Frightened, damn it, hedgehog.
    At one time, Mujahideen were being prepared in Pakistan and sent to Afghanistan to fight with the Shuravi. And now they themselves are going to fight with the same Mujahideen, who were previously trained.
    In Afghanistan, Alexander the Great, Great Britain, SySha (a couple of times) broke off teeth successively, and now Pakistan also wants to get faces in the face with the same rake. Flag in hand, drum on the neck. And no nuclear weapons will help Pakistan in this case. Yes, and what, they just caught a hack — to beat nuclear weapons in a neighboring country? Without considering the aspect of radioactive contamination of the terrain of a part of their territory (wind, mountains), they (Afghans) and from there will climb into Pakistan like cockroaches and no one will stop them.

    terminology of course modern to our veterans probably "cuts" their ears. At the word "Fights" they probably immediately remember themselves in Stalingrad, Rzhev, etc. where the regiments left to attack, and only a few survived. Still, I think our journalists should be given names that are more adequate, such as "border conflict ended with a shootout", etc.
    my personal opinion)

    Everything can be, and heroin and weapons and money and gouging. All this is for the press, and for the military and politicians is another headache, and here is Kerry with his trip to Mongolia. The region will be agitated, it will be shitty where refugees will move, correctly - closer to us.

    Well, the bearded nonsense did not share, so what? Yes, in Russia, in every locality, a lot of people die because of vodka, incl. when one drinks more than the other. Not to arrange "Yaroslavna's cry" on this matter. And here some spirits beat others. Yes, the shaitan will help them! It's good that there were no people around, only spirits! lol smile winked
