US general announced the transfer of additional contingent to Afghanistan

American General John Nicholson, commander of the NATO mission in Afghanistan, said that the number of ISIL militants (banned in the territory of the Russian Federation) in this Central Asian country has halved in the past six months. Nicholson made this statement during a press conference at the Pentagon, which brought together journalists to learn firsthand about the situation in Afghanistan.

The American commander stated that several areas in the provinces of Kunar and Nangarhar in the north-east of the country (near the border with Pakistan) are the main places of concentration of ISIL militants. In these provinces, according to Nicholson, in the last week five American servicemen were injured. Reports the edition about it Wall Street Journal.

US general announced the transfer of additional contingent to Afghanistan

As it turned out, it was not without reason that the American general at the Pentagon declared the concentration of the igilovs in the northeastern provinces of Afghanistan. Nicholson noted that now in the main US military department they are thinking about the possibility of sending an additional US military contingent to Kunar and Nangarhar. This is due to the fact that a few weeks ago the Americans had already transferred several of their additional units to the north-east of Afghanistan. This was stated by the same Nicholson.

It turns out that the number of ISIL militants, according to the general of the US Army, is declining, and the number of US military in Afghanistan is increasing again. This is about the question of Obama's election promises about the withdrawal of the American contingent from this country.

    Afghanistan borders on our neighbors, some of these states are unstable. Where the American "peacekeepers" expect war.

    That pleased the general of spirits! The more foreign troops there, the longer the spirits will fight. Zadornov is right! -They are dumb! Instead of bringing down from Afghanistan, mattresses climb there. It can be seen that I really want to arrange the Bachs for a dermocracy. Well, drugs, of course, also produce more.

    And it seems to me that the Americans are strengthening their troops in Afghanistan in order to support their feeding - ISIS and save it from the Afghan people. They had already fought with ISIS in Syria, that after that, ISIS only grew until ours began to bomb these coves.

    But this is not the merit of Nato. Just half moved to Syria. smile

    if, as they say, there are two times less militants, therefore it has become relatively calmer and you can do your favorite thing with double strength i.e. stir up the water in the region. Most likely they will increase the staff of all sorts of agents, various specialists, bureaucrats, there will be even more different headquarters and centers - from analytical to torture. And so that this whole gang of specialists does not shy away from each shadow, additional troops are being introduced to guarantee their fruitful work.
