The Russians were brilliant – they got everyone out within 24 hours on four planes. Quick, professional and efficient. Job done. No fuss.
Yes the picture says it all.
I get it,
but just wait, it will be in the UK Guardian or Washington Post in the morning with a twisted headline such as: “Russian planes land ready to help with evacuation, but they sit empty as nobody wants to go to Russia. The fleeing Afgans prefer life under the Taliban to life under Putin, so pin thier hopes on a free life in the UK or US”.
“Whilst British and American troops bravely fight off ISIS and work 24/7 to rescue children, puppies, and kittens, Russian soldiers sit around eating popcorn”.
It so happens that the American and British soldiers have been committing unspeakable crimes in Afghanistan and now they are getting a taste of their own medicine and evil, as a parting gift they are also taking 13 body bags and if they don’t leave on the 31st Aug; they will get more gifts, they are hated intensely in Afghanistan, I am on ground in Afghanistan and fully know whats going on and the ground situation. All this instability is due to Extream incompetence of western criminal invaders…Period.
Yes, well aware of it, but sadly most people think of them as “Heros”, especially in the US when the sheep say “Thank You for your Service” to anyone wearing a military uniform.
There was a self-righteous, and somewhat pathetic, video on the whole Afghan pullotut situation made by a few days ago by a “Hero Ex-Navy SEAL” which in his rush to appear like a tough guy, actually summed up the arogance, hubris, ignorance, and vile killer mentality of the whole US military and political complex.
He thought he was being a “big guy” and showing some sort of “grit” by saying what many in the US (and UK) military thought Biden should have said, but what he really showed was just how hopelessy out of touch (and dangerous) these US Spec-ops attack dogs (and British ISIS trainers) really are.
I pitty the US public if this type get jobs as Cops and Gov Enforcers:
They were probably killed by the CIA. This is the great evil. The US government doesn’t care about American lives at all. They create narratives to justify current projects, future projects, and justify taking certain actions. Don’t believe that they are just walking away from this. No way.
No, the headline will be “Russian troops seize control of Kabul”.
And the photo will show a thousand soldiers all sitting in the identical same way.
You switched sides?
Against the background of two aviation guns (double-barreled automatic aviation gun GSH-23 in the tail of the IL-76), there is nothing to worry about.
Given ‘The Taliban’ – aka terrorists imported from Syria – know they will be stamped on hard if they attack Russian assets, they prefer to stick to USUK assets, which helps, and indeed is mandated to help, the USUK media promote the lie that the Taliban are terrorists, ‘justifying’ further kinetic destabilisation of the country.
Everything is proceeding according to the CIA playbook
shooting of random citizens: check
IEDs blowing up random citizens: check
threats against the target government: check
USUK media bloviation: check
As an aside, the airport signage for the western side is very revealing:
He’s manspreading….the woke brigade will have a fit.
Good man. Protecting his balls, something no women could understand.
Figure in office chair looks like a dummy to me, made up like an American soldier. ” America sits around while we get the job done” …
For anyone else wondering about the purpose of mounting an auto-cannon on a cargo plane, wiki claims that it can fire flares to protect from heat seekers and is fitted to IL-76 configured for troop carriers.
Also while searching wiki, this’d make a great movie:
Russian military planes are often like that: double machine gun at the back, glass dome for the navigator at the front – just in case. The same with machine guns: US planes often have six-barrelled rotating “Gatling” type machine guns, Russians planes often have double barreled “Gast” type machine guns – simpler, do not need electricity, may work as single barrel if necessary.
It’s another philosophy entirely.
There is actually, it is “Kandahar” and it is a good movie to see indeed.
Hey remember when a Russian destroyer was about to ram a US warship. And video showed several Russian soldiers in the rear sunbathing? Here is Trevor Noah commenting on the incident and the growing friendship of Putin and Xi at the same time.
I thought it was pretty funny.
Special forces. All over 6 foot six. No one looks worried.
Its a single picture…say what you will, one can interpret ANYTHING onto it.
“A Russian Spetsnaz GRU waits for his order of ‘Kahwah tea’ on the HKIAP tarmac while a IL-76 Transports gets loaded”
“Российский спецназ ГРУ ждет своего заказа «чая Кахва» на асфальте HKIAP, пока загружается Ил-76 «Транспортс»”
It is reported the Russian’s did evac all of its people in a 24 hour operational period, in a professional, concise manner.
This is not the same Soviet force that was ‘in country’ during the 70’s and 80’s, far from it, this is the NEW “Spetsnaz” and NOT to be messed with…as SO MANY have found out in Syria.
The Russia’s look at the Taliban as the “CIA’s Army”, and the Russian’s let the Talibs (and CIA) know, ‘do not fuk around, we will come and get our people, if you do…May Allah help you”…
While other nations had some minor problems getting their nationals out, and some transport aircraft was fired on while departing…the Russians were pretty much left alone.
Syria is next for the Americans
No, this is a unique picture not subject to the anything or everything. Worth framing in the office?
