U.S. may send special forces into Pakistan against Taliban
Data for: U.S. Special Forces mission in Afghanistan
Xinhua People’s Daily December 21, Afghanistan, senior U.S. military officers has revealed that the future may be dispatched into the elite special forces attack Taliban in Pakistan hiding places. Previously, the U.S. military have repeatedly complained that neighboring Pakistan as Afghanistan, the fight against the Taliban in a very poor performance, failure to effectively prevent cross-border militants attacks on various targets in Afghanistan.
“New York Times” revealed that despite the political risks of these programs is high, may intensify the public’s strong anti-American sentiment in Pakistan, but U.S. executives still believe, to send special forces into Pakistan to “enormous intelligence efficiency. ” Currently, the U.S. just keeps sending unmanned aircraft to launch air strikes on targets inside Pakistan, also has killed a number of Taliban militants.
addition to the U.S. military, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency has trained a group of armed men in Afghanistan and Pakistan border areas and the use of their people “appearance similar to the same religion,” the advantage to sneak into Pakistan to carry out covert intelligence gathering activities, and destroyed some of the Taliban’s arsenal. However, direct access to Pakistan to fight U.S. forces still have great political risk.
Currently, the American people has been going on nine years of support for the war in Afghanistan “continue to reduce.” Once the dispatch U.S. troops into Pakistan war, is bound to make the U.S. “to open up a new battlefield,” it is difficult to get out in 2014 to complete the goal. However, senior U.S. military is still optimistic estimates, sooner or later the White House issued a “march to the Pakistani secret” command.
U.S. President Barack Obama in the White House recently announced a new strategy for the war in Afghanistan, said the evaluation report, the United States in the collapse of the “base” organization and fighting with the Taliban has made significant progress, the United States will be scheduled from July 2011 began with Afghanistan. At the same time, he warned that the war in Afghanistan is still in “very difficult” stage.
end of last year, Obama announced a new strategy for the war in Afghanistan, the war in Afghanistan from a “Obama war” means. After repeated balance, Obama announced a year ago to 30,000 troops in Afghanistan, has promised to begin from mid-2011 withdrawal from Afghanistan. In addition, emphasis will push the United States within its borders against terrorist bases to take measures against it.
Obama said the United States in Afghanistan is not intended to thwart all threats to security in Afghanistan, or rebuilding the country, but to smash the “base” organizational network, defeat the Taliban. The United States recognizes the terrorists hiding in Pakistan to solve the problems facing serious challenges, many militants are still to Pakistan as a place to hide.
Recently, US-Pakistan bilateral intelligence relationships are more subtle. During the administration of President Bush, Pakistan has since the issue of intelligence sharing agreement could be reached, when the CIA came close to the intelligence chief in the country of deportation. Obama in order to crush the Taliban hiding in Pakistan and the “base” organization forces, has been working with the Government of Pakistan to improve bilateral relations.
Recently, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency in Pakistan’s intelligence director as a result of accidental exposure is transferred to recall the country, so U.S. counter-terrorism operations in Pakistan suffered a major setback. It is reported, this charge was on 16 February and departed for the United States. A Pakistani whose son was killed in U.S. air strikes, which were charged to hire competent lawyers, then the latter name due to file disclosure and exposure.
because a large number of U.S. troops in Afghanistan logistical needs through Pakistan into Afghanistan highway, so shadowy militants frequently attack, and often succeeded, resulting in a large number of trucks and tankers to be arson burned to U.S. forces caused huge losses. This is also the U.S. military in Pakistan’s intelligence information about militant “special concern” is another key reason. (H Yi Jun)
