Hello all,

Here is a translation of an article I just found.

The United-States will take command of the military operations in Kandahar, after Canada spent 5 years doing it.

Lieutenant-colonel Craig Dalton, says there is now 3 times more allied soldiers than there was a year ago.

The presence of such a force is said to help the Afghan government augment its efficiency and the ability to offer essential services at a local level.

It is also expected that the army and the police will double their numbers.

The operational force of Kandahar comprises Canadian soldiers and an American squad. They will now remain responsible for the Panjwayi, Dand and Daman districts.

Dalton is expecting the force to be more efficient now that it will be covering less terrain. "Conditions, he says, that will allow for the Afghans to be victorious against the Taliban insurgents.

Way to go by announcing in advance your strategy!!!


Seriously, tho, does it mean the end of this occupation is near? I doubt it.

It looks more to me the Americans are placing their forces in bigger numbers close to Iran in a slick move. If Ahmadinejad says it is a massing of troops, no one will listen in the Western world...

Here is the link of the article, for those of you who can read French.

We weren't attacked by terrorists and are probably the least likely to be attacked out of the G20 Nations. We were there to help an ally. We've shed more than our fair share of blood for the Americans and comments like yours are stupid and only inflame dislike for people like yourself.

We also gave ample warning of our exit date, I think it was a couple of years ago, and have been reminding everyone constantly. This was partly done to ensure the Afghans would learn to look after themselves. It's an unwinnable war.

Hey! Hey! Let's not make war on peace walk!

I didn't know about Sangin... so the Americans ARE massing troops?

It is worse than I thought.

snowspirit: I almost put in the OP: I would have thought corruption, lobbying, etc, would have been easier to learn... ( No offense DEEZNUTZ! )

But we're still not completely out...

Thanks for the link, but I also think it is a good news. It is a monumental farce that has gone on long enough.

Afghanistan was invaded primarily for the heroin market that was dying since the Taliban took control of the country in 1996. After 2001, the production of heroin in the country was, reported by the MSM, augmented by 1500%!!!

Also, a year after 9/11, CTV presented a documentary on the events, and while the towers were falling down, and everybody was distressed, a man, looking like a military dressed as a civil, holding what was to be thought a bottle of alcohol in a brown bag was constantly yelling " Down with Afghanistan, Down with Irak, they will pay for this! " Non-stop.

Conditioning at its best if you ask me.

(Edited to thank for the link. )

It seems you were served the same idea. Which is normal under the circumstances. I guess. So there IS a pattern...


The UK will concentrate its effort on the central part of Helmand province instead, in what he said would provide ''more manpower and greater focus'' on that area.


Thanks again for the link!


Also:

"There will always be a bit of Sangin in the bloodstream of the British Army and the Royal Marines."


??? What do they mean? They seem sad to leave... And that makes it 16 000 American soldiers to replace the 8 000 British ones?

I thought Obama wanted to end this?

No probs.....

I dont make predictions but give it up to 2 years and the UK will pull out of combat duty in helmand and reserve as a training force for the Afghans. Leaving helmand for the USA......

Ha ha.... I am fully aware of the Muslim madness back home in the UK thanks.



Still doesnt justify invading a country that had nothing to do with any terrorist attacks untill AFTER it was invaded.

I'm not quite sure our respective troops will have the time to pull out. If war starts with Iran... We will be asked to be good friends again.

I just think they will be pulled out of combat duty.... Just like the UK did in Basra then wow and behold 5 minutes later Afghanistan reeaaaly kicks off and the UK just happens to have lots of free troops to spare.

But Iran is defo on the table, prehaps our troops will be massed quietly near the border ready for a strike?

S&F OP ! That's exactly what its all about getting closer to Iran using Afghanistan as an excuse ! More money to be made ! Over dead bodies on both sides , sure would like the M*ther F*ckers behind all this be up front instead of the soldiers and innocent people as usual ..........
