Trump gør højlydt over Pakistans politik, men da den eneste forsyningsrute ind i Afghanistan til de amerikanske tropper er gennem Pakistan... Tror I der sker noget?

Pakistans svar er "Kys vores behårede bagdel, Mr. President. Vi ved hvem der har bukserne på."

Der er ca. 11.000 amerikanske gidsler i Afghanistan.

Islamabad responded to Trump’s tweet by saying it does not need the US aid, and by denouncing Washington’s financial assistance as “paltry.” “We do not need any financial assistance from the United States. We do not care about it. If America wants to stop it, we will loudly say go ahead,” Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesman Muhammad Faisal said, as cited by the local daily The Nation. He added that, if the US withheld its aid from the Coalition Support Fund, it would “hardly make any difference.”

Afghan Air Force must start maintaining its own aircraft, report says: Military Times


Og hvordan vil man holde på afghanske flymekanikere der er dygtige nok til at vedligeholde det afghanske luftvåben. Mon ikke de hurtigt vil smutte over i den private sektor et eller andet sted i verden.

Nu er amerikanerne osse ved at indse at Afghanistanprojekt var et anfald af hybris. Nu er fokus på hvad er det bedste nederlag.

“I don’t think there is any serious analyst of the situation in Afghanistan who believes that the war is winnable,” Laurel Miller, a political scientist at the RAND Corporation, said in a podcast last summer, after leaving her State Department stint as acting special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Pentagon: Afghan war costing US $45 billion per year: Military Times

Afghanistans årlige BNP er mellem 19 og 20 mia. dollars, hver af kommer minimum 5 mia dollar fra USAs betalinger til Afghanistans sikkerhedsstyrker.

D.v.s. at Afghanistan uden USAs støtte skal minimum brug 25% af BNP på sikkerhed uden hjælp. En umulig opgave.

Derfor har Vesten tabt i Afghanistan fra Dag 1. Mission Impossible er netop en Mission Impossible.


Citer:
Randall Schriver, the Defense Department’s top Asia official, said the $45 billion total for the year includes $5 billion for Afghan forces and $13 billion for U.S. forces inside Afghanistan. Much of the rest is for logistical support. Some $780 million goes toward economic aid.

Givet at USA & CO tabte da der var over 100.000 vestlige tropper i Afghanistan, så kan man give en garanti på dette osse fører mod nederlag. Logisk set er der kun en rigtig vinderstrategi. At forlade landet og lad ske hvad der måtte. Ellers gør man blot en ting at få en masse afghanere dræbt og skabt en støt strøm af flygtninge til EU.

Nok en artikel som viser håbløsheden i USAs strategi for Afghanistan. Hvor er den/de personer som har mandsmodet til at stoppe blodsudgydelserne og trække sig ud af landet?

Mobbed Up - How America boosts the Afghan opium trade: Hapers Magazine - Andrew Cockburn

Man mangler indsigt i de lokale forhold. Noget der ikke har ændret sig siden invasionen.

Citer:
...Such certainty is questionable. Mike Martin, who spent years in Afghanistan as a British Army officer and then as a political adviser to the British forces, commented derisively to me: “Not long ago, the United States had over a hundred thousand troops in the country, plus a huge concentration of CIA and other intelligence resources. At that point, they couldn’t understand what was going on: Mullah Omar had been dead for two years before they found out. Today, they have a footprint one fifteenth the size, so do they understand? They don’t have a clue.”...
De civile afghanere ser USAs bombninger på en anden måde end Vestens civile.

Citer:
...In any case, the claims of severe economic damage were highly dubious. According to information collected by local researchers for David Mansfield, a senior fellow at the London School of Economics, considered by many to be among the world’s greatest experts on the Afghan opium economy, the results of the raid were considerably less impressive than advertised. Of the nine buildings hit in Musa Qala, for example, two were reportedly empty. Six were indeed used for cooking opium into heroin — but they, too, were probably empty at the time of the attack, since traders would be loath to leave valuable inventory in a lockup overnight. The following day, according to these on-the-ground reports, it was business as usual at the local drug bazaar. Prices for opium and heroin were unchanged, as were the wages demanded by workers in the “production facilities,” which consisted of little more than a few oil drums, a hot plate, and a connection to a water source. Children playing in the ruins found little trace of opium. Meanwhile, the unhappy fate of the Habibullah family was attracting wide publicity in the region, generating considerable outrage. ...
Og sidst men ikke mindst et eksempel på hvordan dårligt gennemtænkt politik skaber problemer i spandevis. Læs osse de efterfølgende afsnit for et skoleeksempel på hvorledes ting hænger sammen.

Citer:
...One spectacular example of making things worse can be found in the explosive growth in the 2017 Afghan opium harvest: an eye-catching 87 percent increase over 2016. It was this bumper crop that did much to bolster the American designation of the Taliban as a narco-insurgency and launch the subsequent targeting campaign. According to Mattis, enemy advances and crop growth were closely connected: “As the Taliban surged, we watched the poppy surge right along with it. There’s no surprise here — the intelligence community had warned us about this, so it’s exactly what we were told would happen.”

But why did Helmand farmers really grow so much more opium all of a sudden? In a supreme irony, the root cause would appear to be a multimillion-dollar effort by the United States and Britain to wean them away from opium. Agriculture in the region has traditionally been confined to areas irrigated by the Helmand River as it flows southwest from the Hindu Kush toward the Iranian border. But in the Fifties, Washington had fostered a large-scale irrigation project that produced more fertile land — along with tribal disputes over ownership that underlie much of today’s unrest and violence....

Krigen i Afghanistan er for billig - pengemæssigt og i mandskab til at USAs lederskab trækker sig ud. Intet har forandret sig de sidste ti år.
