Number # 11.

This is coolbert:

As extracted from the South Asia Terrorism Portal and thanks to same the article by Ajit Kumar Singh.

Comments on American disaster in Afghan. Understand also an event of considerable interest to the government and security forces [SF] of India. Security Forces generally defined as the combination of military, paramilitary, and police.

"Ignominious Retreat"

From the # 11 Assessment:

Hardly can it be said the Afghan security forces allied with the American military did not fight and die. Consider the period: 2009 - (data till September 4, 2021).. 

"Further at least 68,713 Security Force (SF) personnel, including 4,813 in 2021 alone, have been killed during this period. The number of terrorists killed during this period stands at 115,909, including 19,776 in 2021 alone. The number of SF personnel killed in 2009 was 900 and that of terrorists at 4,610."

Elements of Al Qaeda in Afghan rather more active than I hardly want to believe.

"Al-Qaida is present in at least 15 Afghan provinces, primarily in the eastern, southern and south-eastern regions. Its weekly Thabat newsletter reports on its operations inside Afghanistan. Al-Qaida in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) operates under Taliban protection from Kandahar, Helmand and Nimruz Provinces."

Regarding AQIS:

"AQIS, is an Islamist militant organization which aims to fight the governments of Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Myanmar and Bangladesh"

Listen very closely and you might hear a long and satisfied chuckle from Osama himself? I hate to think so.
