pipedreams Posted August 19, 2021 Share Posted August 19, 2021 "British para troopers are driving through the streets of Kabul to rescue nationals, but Americans have again been told they’re on their own" "The British government, however has sent in 900 elite para troopers to rescue some 4000 nationals in Kabul, and told the soldiers to expect face to face combat with the Taliban. Sources have indicated that the U.S. command is unhappy with the British forces going into the heart of Kabul, claiming that it is putting the withdrawal agreement at risk (isn’t a bit late for that?). The British troops are also said to be livid at the way America is treating Afghans who are desperate to flee the Taliban. Yet American troops are also said to be pissed off with their higher ups not letting them run rescue missions alongside the Brits." https://summit.news/2021/08/19/sources-british-and-us-troops-at-odds-in-afghanistan-as-uk-engages-rescue-missions/ 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
