People hearing on January 24 U.S. President Barack Obama has repeatedly publicly announced withdrawal from Iraq, more troops to Afghanistan while thirty thousand. However, tens of thousands of troops come from is a mystery. Sources said that Afghanistan will be the first to the U.S. Mountain Division soldiers also reported that part of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq will be sent to Afghanistan.
Associated Press, United States Marine Corps, one of the four arms of Barack Obama will become the main force troops to Afghanistan, will have about 22,000 officers and men of the Marine Corps was sent to Afghanistan combat missions, the rotation period of 7 months. The U.S. military reinforcements’s main rival is the Taliban in Afghanistan and the “base” organization rump.
recent years, the Afghan Taliban, “revived” and accounted for almost half of the country south of the country. Local person, in southern, those who are not NATO’s Allied region is frequented by the Taliban “security zone”, and through the cultivation of opium in exchange for weapons and other supplies. Afghan government is eager to early arrival of U.S. reinforcements.
It is reported that the Taliban controlled areas of the world’s opium production accounted for about 90% of the total. As the shortage of troops, U.S. and Afghan military and police, can only control some of the major cities and along the highway, while the Taliban to hand over vast rural areas, and warlords. In fact, since after 2001, southern Afghanistan, there is no “corpuscles” over the Taliban control the scope.
Currently, there are 34,000 U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan, of which only 2,200 are members of the Marine Corps. If too many officers and men assigned to the Marine Corps, “even the sea can not see,” Afghanistan is bound to affect their traditional amphibious landing training program. The Marine Corps was sent to Afghanistan will mainly be deployed in southern Afghanistan, where also the headquarters of the Taliban.
Marine reinforcements will carry these new MV22 “Osprey” type of VTOL aircraft to Afghanistan. U.S. military installation in the belly of this aircraft guns in order to better air assault on militants launched. In addition, the U.S. military will also improve their ballistic amphibious infantry fighting vehicles, to deal with the growing threat of roadside bombs.
is a state visit to Uzbekistan, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on 23, said at a news conference in support of U.S. President Barack Obama to seek new ways to solve the Afghan problem. He said that Russia supports Obama another way to solve the Afghan problem and proposed the convening of Afghanistan and its neighbors to participate in international meetings to promote problem-solving.
generally agreed that the Taliban gained the support of the Afghan people reflects the endless war for their own dissatisfaction. Final settlement of the Afghan issue should be supported Arab neighbors. How to deal with Afghanistan, the White House will become the new face of the largest and most difficult of the “international challenges.” Obama said it would develop the whole of Afghanistan and the surrounding areas for a more comprehensive policy.
the future, the United States, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan policy will form an organic whole, changed the former “conflicts” situation. First, the U.S. military will withdraw troops from Iraq to Afghanistan territory to ensure that the number of local U.S. “double”, so to avoid re-become the Taliban of Afghanistan, “Paradise.”
However, relying solely on superior force, the United States is not sufficient to ensure long-term stability of Afghanistan. The United States in Afghanistan and Pakistan must be to carry out comprehensive diplomatic and economic efforts, have a chance to reduce all kinds of radical forces. Obama has hinted that the U.S. can win the war in Afghanistan. However, this will allow Obama bid farewell to “peace president,” the aura of a “second Bush.”
once war unfavorable, the U.S. military in Iraq may have to choose a similar kind of “withdraw its role” of dollars, the gradual withdrawal of the troops in Afghanistan. Loss of soldiers off the Americans against the war in Iraq because, if in the future the U.S. military in Afghanistan suffered heavy casualties, the Americans’ anti-war attention “will soon go to Afghanistan. Obama will shoulder the pressure increased sharply.
2008, a total of 151 U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan, created seven years of the war began, “record.” Taliban hope Obama do not forget the lessons of the former Soviet Union, as soon as possible the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, and stressed that the Afghan people to decide their own fate, the U.S. military on this issue without “help.”
Obama aides pointed out that Pakistan’s domestic situation to Council and will give the U.S. military action in Afghanistan significant impact. In the past year, Pakistan’s military and police continued in the regions near the Afghan border, anti-insurgent operations, has killed more than 1,500 militants. Nevertheless, Pakistan is still unable to fully contain the Taliban attacks in Pakistan territory.
Taliban threatened, has already done the “engaged” the U.S. military preparations. In response to this phenomenon, the U.S. expressed the hope that Pakistan’s adherence to the border, not to those who are U.S. military “to kill was no way out” of the Taliban as a haven. Obama took office, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency continued to launch missile attacks on targets inside Pakistan, the Bush administration’s strategy for succession. (H Yi Jun)
