The United States is focusing on its ‘eternal war’ in Afghanistan from its largest base from midnight, the local Afghan commander was reportedly under -informed.
The somewhat shocking way of leaving in which Bagram was immediately abandoned is a “ghost base” – as some have already called it – frankly described by Associated Press as follows: “The US has abandoned Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan after nearly 20 years power outage and disappeared overnight without informing the new Afghan commander on the basis, who discovered the departure of the Americans more than two hours after their departure, Afghan military officials said. “

What’s more it caught the local Afghan forces guarding that result of the robbery immediately once the uncertainty standard was left untouched by Americans.
The Afghan commander for the area first heard “rumors” of an imminent U.S. exit from the airfield, but later learned that it had already become a reality.
And then the next almost unbelievable scene plays out, ending in America longest running war in history:
Before the Afghan military took control, the airfield, which was nearly an hour’s drive from Afghanistan’s capital Kabul attacked by a small band of robbers, who ransacked the barracks after the barracks and surrounded the giant storage tents before being evicted, according to Afghan military officials.
“At first we thought they might be Taliban,” Said Abdul Raouf, a 10 -year -old soldier. He said the US called from the Kabul airport and said “we are at the Kabul airport.”
It happened days ago but is only now visible, with an Afghan soldier quoted by the AP as saying, “In one night, they lost all the goodwill of 20 years by abandoning the way they used to.” Lots of details in progress now as follows:
The sudden darkness was like a signal to the robbers, he said. They entered from the north, breaking down the first barrier, burglarizing buildings, loading whatever was not nailed to the trucks.
On Monday, three days after leaving the U.S., Afghan soldiers were still storing piles of garbage containing canned water bottles, cans and empty energy drinks left by the robbers.
Abandoned vehicles left behind by Americans:
Despite the Taliban’s growing strength across the country amid a serious escalation of attacks by national forces, the Afghan government believes it will maintain an expanding and strengthened airbase, which will also house a prison holding most Taliban -linked inmates.
The sudden and under cover of the night departure from the US was reported provoked widespread anger among Afghan security forces.
If the Taliban soon threatens Kabul, which many analysts believe is likely if not nearly certain, the group may look at overrunning Bagram first to be used as a strategic launching point towards the Afghan capital.
