Taliban Awash in US Arms, Vehicles, Complicate Afghan War – News From Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 26, 2017

Fake news from CNN about Russia. CNN attempts to distract us from failure and incompetence in Afghanistan, one of the many places we are warring that have never attacked US.

CNN has attempted to distract from this, focusing instead on a handful of Russian weapons seen in Taliban videos and speculating that the Taliban is getting directly armed by Russia. Yet there’s no question Taliban are armed vastly more with US gear than Russian hand-me-downs, and there’s never a suggestion the US is deliberately arming them.

The reality is that generations of warfare, first against the Soviet Union and later against the United States, has made the Taliban extremely good at coming up with ways to get weapons, and the longer the war drags on, the more US war materiel is being lost to them, turning the Taliban into the best-armed terrorist outfit this side of Syria, a country where the US has been deliberately arming the insurgencies.

Be seeing you
