Surobi, first stage of a French withdrawal from Afghanistan?

(BRUSSELS2) (In Marseille) Responding to a question from a colleague, Hervé Morin did not want to consider the possibility of a withdrawal from Afghanistan. "A milestone has been set by NATO for early 2011, with the transfer of a number of districts to the Afghan authorities he clarified. The French are present in Kapisa and Surobi. “In Kapisa, it's difficult, but in Surobi, it's extremely peaceful. On the Surobi, we could envisage a gradual transfer to the Afghan authorities, while maintaining a support mechanism. We had already transferred control of Kabul to the Afghan authorities. And it's going well ", he added.

  • Midship

    The desire to see Surobi as a “appeased” district is beginning to border on the ridiculous… the Uzbeen valley, in particular, is located in Surobi.

    • YES uzbeen is and exists, but I think that the transfer to the ANA is inevitable, on the other hand putting the package on kapisa is inevitable, so as to avoid the easy conflagration of multiple valleys which are held by the chiefs, who themselves do not have the greatness of mind to understand what is really at stake in this war.
      Quite simply, by the Islamic gathering, al quaeda, the first gathering of the uneducated, on the values ​​of a religious utopia.
      It's so easy to type a few letters on your computer in your living room, but you still have to have been to the bottom of the valleys, afgahania, alasay etc. to talk about it.
      good night

  • It's a good thing that some of the French soldiers are leaving, I think it was about time.
