In Doha, Afghanistan government and Taliban representatives failed to agree on a truce for the Eid al-Adha holiday.

Meanwhile, clashes all over the country continue. The situation remains tense in Parvan province, where the Taliban fighters are getting closer to the capital Kabul that remains under the government control.

On July 19, Taliban captured Najrab district, while ANA took control over Surkhe Parsa east of Kabul.

The U.S. handed over new attack helicopters to Afghanistan government forces, after at least three helicopters were destroyed by Taliban in the recent days.

“The helicopters were delivered to Kabul today and are to be officially handed over to the Air Force in a special ceremony. According to the plan, more helicopters will be delivered to Afghanistan in the coming months,” Afghan National Army’s (ANA) Shokhin Corps 209 spokesman was quoted as saying on July 16.

According to the reports 7 UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters were delivered to Kabul. All of them are provided with all necessary equipment to accurate target designation at any time of the day.

The number of the helicopters that should be provided by the next batch was not unveiled.

The Taliban militants have recently claimed the destruction of at least three Afghan helicopters by their UAVs. (LINK, LINK) In total, the Afghan Air Force (AAF) have reportedly lost about 8 helicopters since the beginning of 2021.

AAF seems to be the last hope for Kabul. While loosing control over regions all over the country, AAF airstrikes inflict heavy human and material losses on the Taliban. This is the reason why AAF helicopters are an important target for militant’s UAV’s.

That is a long way for Talibans to win the war, since they only occupied half of the country, without any backup they might lose.

If the Afghanistan govs has arial backup from foreign country then it would be less likely.

Why so? the casualties are so high for every engagement, Talibans may run out of men before the govs run out bullets.

What are your thoughts>

Ahson

In a week or less all these talibunny gains will go down the toilet if Iran and Russia decide to bail out the ANA. All Iran has to do is to send a couple of dozen UCAV’s and specialists. Russia can bomb the crap out of the talibs too if they start trouble in the north of Afghanistan. So far though, neither Iran nor Russia want to take the military option. Power sharing between the Afghan gubment and the talibunnies is being encouraged. For now…….

The Objective

If it were that easy, they would have done it. Soleimani and other Iranian commandos fought alongside U.S forces during the invasion of Afghanistan. Iran did all it could but now it has tacitly accepted defeat. What makes you thing Russia and Iran will succeed where NATO failed?
The opposite would happen if the Iranian leadership were to embark on such a dangerous move. Missiles will fly into Iran and destroy much of its oil infrastructure. Israel and the Saudis will gladly supply those missiles to the Taliban free of charge via Pakistan. Iran will suffer serious economic consequences. That’s the reason Iran dares not even support the Shiites in the North. Taliban has taken much of the Northern province (a traditionally anti-Taliban stronghold).
Russia too won’t dare start a war with the Taliban. With the proliferation of precision guided technology, Russian forces will be targeted on Russian soil. The U.S, Turkey, and Pakistan will all arm the Taliban to bleed Russia out.
So, your is a pipedream and the bitterness of a Shiite loser.
Sunni Shariah will rule Afghanistan whether you Iranians like it or not.

Arch Bungle

The Iranians have very likely found a way to benefit from cooperation with the Taliban.

After all, the Taliban are serving Iranian interests by defeating NATO and the Americans.

If I were Iran I’d stand back and watch NATO and the Taliban take each other apart.

Once the dust has settled, as it was in Iraq, the Iranians will be the most powerful force in Afghanistan …

That is the Iranian plan.

Of course, fools like you don’t think that deeply but the Ayatollahs do …

YankeeGoHome

I disagree. Taliban might not be Westpoint grads, but they are strategic masters. There is no way Iran will have a foothold in a Taliban run Afghanistan. Instability in Afghanistan only endangers Iran and all neighbouring countries alike. They know Taliban are set to win, hence they are talking to them. Taliban, like them or not, are the next rulers of Afghanistan. Iran will have to put up or shut up

Ahson

It’s not over yet……Iran is talking to the talibunnies for now. This could change quickly if Shia or Persian speakers are attacked. It was the same way back in 1996 till 9-11…….The pipe dream is yours brah……lol…..you couldn’t do diddly in the SyRaq no? Turkey/ Sawdi judea/ Qatar/ NATO and the US did all they could for the jihadists no? Yet Iran prevailed. $300 billion spent on ISIS Al-Qaeda franchises in the SyRaq no? You got that amount to pump up the talibunnies?…….lol…..quit jiving brah……

Faisal al Al-Mahdi

America, the anti Christ, tried to bomb crap out of afghanistan and the soviet union before that. Like Yemen it is the grave yard of empire. Their terrain and culture make it impossible to conquer.

Peter Wallace

You have been claiming for months that Iran will step in and clean out the Taliban but that has not nor does it appear that that will happen. As I have said before , dreaming it so doesn’t make it reality. Your claims that Iranian associated tribes make up the majority of Afghanistan population were wrong. Your claim that the Taliban were a smaller group were also wrong. The Taliban belong to the largest group with the Tajiks and then Uzbeks the next largest groups. Iran is not interested in going into Afghanistan. Russia has no desire to get involved again. As long as the Taliban abide by their agreements to respect the borders so will Iran and Russia. s

Peter Wallace

. The Americans used everything except the atomic bomb to bomb the Taliban out of existence but they have grown in numbers to now seriously be capable of taking over control of most of Afghanistan again. Last time it was only the Northern Alliance that was left and it was only 9/11 that saved them from being defeated as the Taliban were building up forces too attack. Does this mean I like the Taliban. ABSOLUTELY NOT and I would prefer the Yanks to the Taliban but stop dreaming and face

Peter Wallace

The Taliban have promised to be better and more inclusive this time and maybe they will , for a period , but it is time for everyone else to leave Afghanistan alone and let the people sort out their own country for a change.

YankeeGoHome

Taliban already have (Shia) Hazara troops and commanders as well as Uzbek commanders. Taliban are smarter and more powerful than ever. US had to leave to avoid an imminent Tet-like offensive this summer (2021), they had no choice else they would have faced a Saigon moment – “US-Taliban negotiations” were just face saving for the US

YankeeGoHome

“except the atomic bomb ” ? – Wrong – they used Low yield Nukes several times in Afghanistan. So despite THAT,Taliban still defeated USA

Peter Wallace

You are saying America used an atomic bomb in Afghanistan. How come no one in the world knows of this. The Russians and Chinese would be screaming to the rooftops. Various anti nuke groups around the world would be blasting America . Even low yield blasts are detectable around the world. Your credibility has nosedived..

There can be no peaceful end if puppet regime keeps wanting to fight. Taliban were and are and will be the rulers of AfghanistanIndia has lost. Iran may yet lose. pakistan will win and Afghanistan will be a stable stronghold for Militant Sunni Political islam – all but defeated elsewhere by none other than Washington and Tel Aviv’s Whores – UAE, SAUDI

Arch Bungle

Why would Iran step in and deal with the Taliban? The Taliban are literally fighting the Great Satan on Iran’s behalf …

Peter Wallace

The last time the Taliban were in power they were only recognised by Saudi Arabia , UAE and Pakistan so my guess would be that Iran and the Taliban would not be on friendly terms. The Taliban have promised Iran that they will not cross their border nor interfere in Iranian matters. The Taliban did promise America if they provided genuine evidence that Bin Laden was responsible for 9/11 they would hand him over . The Yanks just said ” he did it” so the Taliban said flock off then , which is exactly what the US wanted so they could invade Afghanistan . Last time the Taliban were just evil brutally killing tens of thousands of Afghan people. There is no way I support their takeover of Afghanistan but it is their country to sort out regardless of if I agree with them or not.

YankeeGoHome

Most of the “evil” about Taliban was MSM war talk. Sure, austere Hanafi Taliban are painful to live under if you are a corrupt Muslim – Taliban rule was no different to Tribal rule in Afghanistan for Centuries. Muslims who complain of Taliban want “freedoms” that are anathema to the very fundamentals of true Islam. What exactly in Taliban’s practice of islam is against Quran and Sunna?

I was watching the Taliban before the US invaded so sorry you are bullsh itting to the wrong person. I think you need to go home as well.

Who is going to recognize a talibunny gubment? Who? Who is going to give them money to survive? Who?…they don’t got an economy buddy….lol……get real no? Pashto speakers are 40% of the pop. The remainder speak Persian. Why would Iran go into Afghanistan when it can summon tens of thousands to do that for it?

Its afganization of the war. nothing new, US did the same in Vietnam. The only force in ANA capable to fight Talibans is commando corpus, cca 20000 soldiers. They can do search & destroy until helos become dried out. And then only Kabul will be held.

What you say could be true but TALIBAN HAS MADE THE MOST BRILLIANT TACTICAL MOVE BY CAPTURING ALL THE BORDER CROSSING THUS THEY HAVE JUGULAR VIENS OF KABUL IN THEIR HAND AND THEY CAN SMOKE THEM OUT ANYTIME BUT IT IS NOT IN THEIR INTEREST
THEY WANT AN INCLUSIVE GOVERNMENT WITH KABUL SO THEY CAN HAVE PEACE AND DEVELOP AFGHANISTAN

YankeeGoHome

100% right Balu. They have cut the supply lines – even in Tajik north, control almost all the borders,Now they will encircle and close in on Kabul. Expect Ghani to fly off in the sunset to his Swiss Chalet to spend the $Billions the US pays this puppet pig

YankeeGoHome

Commandos + US war machine have been fighting side by side for 20 years, but Taliban still prevailed. How can anyone believe even 50 000 commandos can prevail over Taliban. US never could hold onto more than a few streets in Kabul at any one time. For ANA its just a matter of time before they crumble entirely. They are an impossible concoction of ethnicities with Tribal affiliations rather than national affiliations. Taliban have forged an identity with a powerful single religious dogma – which is their rallying call ( How they got Shia Hazaras to join them is a miracle).

The Objective

You are underinformed about Afghanistan. Bill Roggio is the man you should follow on twitter to learn first hand information about What’s going on in Afghanistan. Most of his tweets become news within hours or days: https://twitter.com/billroggio?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor

He agrees that at least 70% of Afghanistan is under Taliban control. The Taliban are deliberately not attacking provincial capitals because of Turkey-Pakistan pressure to try and reach an agreement with the Afghan government. Turkey and Pakistan want to avert a civil war in Afghanistan and they want a Taliban government that receives global recognition. However, everything depends on the negotiation between Taliban and the U.S puppets.

Taliban wont hold out forever if puppets refuse to talk – they are staying out of provincial capitals to avoid bloodshed of civilians and wait for US complete withdrawal, although, if ground situation turns against them, they will change their minds. There wont be a civil war – who will lead it? – Dostum?

Remember in 2001? It was easy they said. We are the best army in the world, second to none they said. The Taliban may run out of men they said.

The US told Pakistan’s government to tell the Taliban to stop supporting Al-Qaeda and that the US is going to invaded Afghanistan. Soon after that, the US invaded Afghanistan to fight Al-Qaeda and the Taliban mainly because the Taliban were working with Al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups and other BS the yanquis said to control Afghanistan really.
Also, it is important to know, the Taliban took the power from Mujahideen -> Mujahideen were very pro-West (they got support from the West to fight the Soviet Union and Taliban with The Sunni Pakistan came in and killed their leader and took the power, Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan – there is much more that I missed – but look it up or just talk to Afghan who still care about their country.
Also, following the United States invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, the Taliban was defeated and many Taliban fighters left the movement or retreated to sanctuaries in Pakistan.
A lot of Taliban went AFK you could say, and now that the Taliban coming back and have the US out, they would be more of them, sure but the thing is the Northern Alliance and other anti-Taliban groups are on rising as well, for you know the last 25 years.

Anyway, the yanquis give up like back way back and start to give support and fight if they have to, air support and whatnot.
Afghanistan wasn’t Iraq, it is true, Iraqi are mostly Shia and so the yanquis went after Sunnis, but in Afghanistan, the population is mostly Sunnis, and the Taliban live with the population.

Role of the Pakistani military,
The Taliban were largely founded by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence beginning in 1994; the I.S.I. used the Taliban to establish a regime in Afghanistan which would be favourable to Pakistan, as they were trying to gain strategic depth. Since the creation of the Taliban, the ISI and the Pakistani military have given financial, logistical and military support.

During 2001, according to several international sources, 28,000–30,000 Pakistani nationals, 14,000–15,000 Afghan Taliban and 2,000–3,000 Al-Qaeda militants were fighting against anti-Taliban forces in Afghanistan as a roughly 45,000 strong military force. Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf – then as Chief of Army Staff – was responsible for sending thousands of Pakistanis to fight alongside the Taliban and Bin Laden against the forces of Ahmad Shah Massoud.

The US also said after 2 weeks “Mission Accomplished”, Taliban defeated.

Faisal al Al-Mahdi

Taliban have a sea of men to fill their ranks. dont believe that their casualities are high , thats american , the anti christ propaganda , probably these are killed civilians they claim . just like in vietnam body count was exaggerated. more likley the”govt” will run out of men long before they run out of ammo , due to desertions and switching sides. They have 85% of the country now and they hold the important parts like border crossings and economic assets for tax collection.
Iran wont attack Taliban and start another war , together with allies China and Russia they will go for long game of engagement and negotation.

Arch Bungle

Your theory is contradicted by Reality.

If the Taliban could “run out of men”, they would have done so 20 years ago.

If support of a foreign power was enough to keep the ‘Afghan government’ in power, then why are they falling now ?

If the Americans could not defeat the Taliban after 20 years IN AFGHANISTAN what makes you think they will do any better now that they’re physically out of the country?

The Taliban will once again rule. That is a guaranteed fact.

The Black Terror

The way the situation is developing, i suggest that high-ranking Afghan government politicians and anybody who worked for the US/NATO/lapdog invaders start getting their personal affairs in order and prepare to make a quick exit from the country. Your life expectancy may be drastically shortened by small arms fire at a very close range.

A clown like you

Like the past 20 years, you mean?
Do you really think the Taliban wouldn’t kill them because of yanquis? Really…
Taliban killed mostly civilians and pro-government forces for the past 20 years, but there are parts of Afghanistan that never saw any fighting and some of the Afghan population never let the Taliban in for the past 25 years.
Have a look at the map.
