UK to leave small number of elite troops in Afghanistan as ex-MI6 chief warns of likely civil war – media

The British government is poised to keep a small special forces contingent on the ground in Afghanistan, The Telegraph has reported, after the Taliban made significant ground gains amid the US withdrawal. Days after the US and its NATO allies pulled out of the coalition’s main base in the country, Afghan troops retreated and the Taliban captured swaths of territory, including a key district in Kandahar province.

I am sorry to say this but the SAS are not supermen. As we know from the war with 16 year old children in the Falklands/Malvinas.

The British have already been kicked out of Afghanistan before so this won`t be the first time.

The Brit lunatics refuse or are unable to learn from history. Alexander the Great failed, the Mongols failed, the Russian Empire failed, the British Empire failed, the USSR failed, the AmeriCunts failed, the NATO-Mafia failed…..you finaly got the message or you just too stupid? I guess they go for option two.

Does that mean that Boris is giving Biden a break by allowing Biden to pretend he is for peace and against endless war, while on the ground in Afghanistan it remains the same old…..with British proxies covering for the yanks?

Are the SAS special forces meant to protect the opium production in Afghanistan, perhaps?

that’s the most likely explanation. Why let all these profits from the poppy fields go to waste, after all.

The man who would be king plays the great game. But his hair get in the way.

So that’s what Brexit gets you: You are so desperate, you have to do the shit-jobs for the dying empire all over the world, be it in the Black Sea where they risked their soldiers’ lives just to see how the russian defence systems work or in Afghanistan, where the brits now have to protect the poppy trade for their imperial masters.

Well sone, Nigel Farage.

Good idea Boris the Taliban do need some target practise and your SAS are just the cure. I recall reading way back when Johnson was not that well known and someone asked what was he like? The answer was a well educated idiot.

I’d think the purpose of an SAS squadron being deployed would be aid the hot extraction of UK diplomatic staff in the inevitable forthcoming collapse of Kabul. I doubt there’s any realistic hope of training up the Afghan army at this late stage.

Part of their so-called ‘Army’ already fled to Tajikistan, the Brits probably doesn’t want left their drug trafficking operation with the partnering CIA unattended.

I suspect (don’t know of course) that there is more to the Afghan soldiers’ reluctance to go all out fighting against the Taliban than lack of training. If I attempt to imagine I am an Afghan soldier (not an easy thing to do), I would definitely lack enthusiasm when ordered to kill my fellow Muslims (the Taliban) at the behest of the satanic infidel US invaders who have totally destroyed my country, robbed it of all its wealth and resources, and killed millions of my own people.
