Why can’t the US learn from us?

The Taliban are now in possession of more Blackhawk helicopters than 166 other nations around the globe !! Basically Biden gifted Taliban 20 billion dollars $ worth of the most dangerous military hardware in the world.

Thanks to the US, the Taliban has an air force now with 11 military bases, an army of well-trained soldiers equipped with the latest weapons and gadgets, well-planned military bases but most importantly, something the Taliban never dreamt of—an Air Force.

 In the three months from April to June 2021, the US formally handed over to the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) six A-29 light attack aircraft, 174 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (Humvees), about 10,000 2.75 inch high-explosive rockets, 61,000 40-mm high explosive rounds, 9,00,000 rounds of .50 calibre ammo, and 20,15,600 rounds of 7.62 mm bullets.

The Afghan Air Force (AAF) operates three types of helicopters which include the 45 UH-60 Blackhawks, 50 MD-530s, and 56 Mi-17 helicopters besides its A-29 Super Tucano fighters (23 in number), C-130 Hercules transport aircraft, C-208 utility aircraft, and AC-208 fixed-wing aircraft.

In total, the AAF has an inventory of 211 air platforms of which 167 were operable as of June 30, 2021. 

The 11 bases and military complexes recently handed over to the ANDSF are New Antonik, Kandahar airfield, Camp Morehead, New Kabul Complex, Blockhouse, Camp Stevenson, Camp Dwyer, Camp Lincoln (Camp Marmal), Camp Arena, Bagram airfield and the Resolute Support headquarters (RSHQ) which was handed over to the Afghan government on June 6, 2021.

It is nothing but the Americans to be blamed for this mess. They did it in Iraq & now Afghanistan and elsewhere in the world before. They are the root cause for distrubing the peace in this world.

They have never fought a war on their own land. Never won a war but come back with body bags & their tails between their legs.

Looks like it’s China’s well planned, waged war – Coronavirus, US Elections and now Afghanistan.

They plan to get minerals & other geological wealth worth trillions of $s & also get easier access to European market.

India, with the second largest military in the world, has never taken unprovoked military action outside its borders. Never tried to police other nations. Has an enviable track record of war victories in its own soil post 1962. A very non-interfering foreign policy. No corporate lobbies making arms & ammunition. The recent shift from ‘strategic restraint’ to surgical strikes when provoked has yielded very good results. As the second most populated nation with the highest diversity, we are a role model to marvel at & emulate.
