Mujahideen graduate from training camp

"Oceania was at war with Eurasia; therefore Oceania
had always been at war with Eurasia."

  • The insane Afghan War goes on and on and on. How many decades and how much treasure are we to spend on this rat hole?

(Long War Journal)  -  The Taliban said 100 “mujahideen” have graduated from its “Khalid bin Walid Camp” and 50 more from its “Abu Dujana Camp.” These two facilities are designed to indoctrinate and train fighters in basic combat techniques, and the Khalid bin Walid Camp “can train up to 2000 recruits at a single time,” according to the Taliban.
The training camps were promoted on Voice of Jihad, the Taliban’s official propaganda outlet. According to the group, the facilities were established and are currently run by the “Commission for Military Camps and Martyrdom Battalions.”

The location of the Khalid bin Walid Camp was not specifically disclosed, however the Taliban said that it “trains recruits in 8 provinces (Helmand, Kandahar, Ghazni, Ghor, Saripul, Faryab, Farah and Maidan Wardak) and “has around 300 military trainers and scholars.” The facility “can train up to 2000 recruits at a single time and trains them in the fields of Shariah, military, technical and intelligence.”
The Abu Dujana Camp is located in Sar-i-Pul province, and is one of “12 branches” of the Khalid bin Walid Camp, according to the Taliban.
According to the Taliban, the fighters at both camps were “given a basic 45 day training course in military, Islamic creed, Hanafi Fiqh [understanding of the Hanafi school of jurisprudence], Seerat (life of the noble Prophet SAW) and intelligence.”
During the military instruction, the fighters are “given training of most used weapons like rifles, machine guns, RPG 7, 75mm and 82mm artillery, mortars, Dshk, KPV and ZPU-2 AA guns as well as other arms and at the same time are given basic information about different explosives, APCs, tanks, aircrafts, lasers, recon planes and other modern gear.”
The statement promoting the two camps was accompanied by a series of photographs showing the Taliban recruits in various formations. The Taliban fighters are operating in the open in broad daylight.

British Fortifications, Kabul in 1879
From 1839 to 1919 the British fought three wars in Afghanistan with near zero real results.  But politicians and soldiers love to play war and refuse to learn the lessons of history on the limits of military power.  Now these same moronic "leaders" want to jump back into Iraq and Syria.
