Billions spent on Afghan army ultimately benefited Taliban<br /> By ROBERT BURNS<br />

Miles de millones gastados en el ejército afgano finalmente beneficiaron a los talibanes

Opinion: That’s what happened in Vietnam, when Americans left in a hurry, I was stationed there and suddenly had to leave anything of value before returning to the U.S. Many GI’s had expensive stereo system, refrigerator, fans, etc. All the things I thought were going to be returned to me in the U.S., were not. I saw armored vehicles left behind by the U.S. military. The Taliban now is one of the best equipped for military excursions in the world.

Opinion: (Eso es lo que sucedió en Vietnam, cuando los estadounidenses se fueron a toda prisa, yo estaba estacionado allí y de repente tuve que dejar todo de valor antes de regresar a los EE. UU. Muchos soldados tenían un sistema estéreo caro, refrigerador, ventiladores, etc. para ser devuelto a mí en los Estados Unidos, no lo hicieron. Vi vehículos blindados abandonados por el ejército de los EE. UU. El Talibán es ahora uno de los mejor equipados para excursiones militares en el mundo.)
