unsuprising though with the amount of surplus stuff that is available do the discerning buyer.Did the US ever trace the stingers they gifted to the bearded followers of cammels?
The point of my post was not the use of NVGs - but the location, Farah was very much US turf back in the day. I note however that it is all hearsay from AFG sources.
This come after early this year around 200 NATO soldiers, mainly Italians, have been deployed to Afghanistan's volatile western province of Farah after attempts by Taliban fighters in recent months to overrun its capital city.
The Pentagon recently said it would deploy some 300 U.S. Marines to the southern province of Helmand, where American forces engaged in heated combat until their mission ended in 2014.
Last year, Taliban fighters attempted to overrun several provincial capitals, from Kunduz and Baghlan in the north to Helmand in south and Farah in the west.
The U.S. still has some 8,400 troops in Afghanistan.
In early December, NATO and U.S. forces commander in Afghanistan Gen. John Nicholson said the government in Kabul directly controls about 64 percent of the country's population of 30 million, down slightly from 68 percent earlier in 2016.
