No se entiende muy bien si de lo que se trata es de salir básicamente de Herat (dejando allí algunos apoyos) y concentrarse en QiN. En su caso, tenemos que en Badghis, en gran parte del territorio, los flamantes RG31 no van a ser muy aptos porque hay pasos tremendamente estrechos, donde solo los linces o similar pueden circular.

En todo caso, no tenemos una política clara allí. El blog de la Harka dice que en 2011 el CG de Bétera mandará ISAF. Eso ya se frustró en al menos dos ocasiones porque al gobierno no le interesaba mandar ISAF. No entiendo cómo no se exige al Gobierno que explique qué leches quiere hacer allí a medio plazo, aparte de torear al personal.

He visto que hay una periodista de EL MUNDO \\\"insertada\\\" en una unidad militar USA operando en el este de AFG. Habría que recordar a la Chacón, -casada con un periodista de éxito e influencia monclovita- que eso es imposible en unidades militares españolas porque el gobierno lo tiene radicalmente prohibido. Así no se puede afrontar una misión de alto riesgo, y mucho menos explicarla. Donde falte la política de información sensata, aparecerán las filtraciones y los rumores intencionados. Pero ellos sabrán...

Una de acciones CIMIC en nuestro PRT
Medical Clinic for Children Held at Shamail Daria Village

KABUL, Afghanistan – Spanish International Security Assistance Force doctors and members of the Provincial Reconstruction Team in Qual-e-Naw held a medical clinic north of the city at Shamail Daria village on April 2.

The clinic was arranged by the PRT's Civil Military Cooperation unit and was held in a building constructed by the Spanish Cooperation for Development Agency. The building will be handed over to Badghis province authorities for use as a teacher's training centre.

Patients were brought into the building accompanied by their local elders. A team of two doctors examined patients.

"The worst cases we saw were those of tuberculosis and congenital cataracts," said Spanish ISAF Army Nurse, Captain Alfonso Tomas.

For some children, the clinic visit was enough to make a dramatic improvement in their quality of life.

"In some of the cases we could have improved the survival of a child, at least in a short term, specifically for the children suffering from asthma, whooping cough and intestinal parasites," said Spanish ISAF Army Doctor Major Susana Jimeno.

Jimeno and Tomas also provided prescriptions for children with the assistance of an interpreter.

"This experience has given to me the opportunity to realize how precarious the health situation in this country really is," said Jimeno.

This was the first medical clinic held by the Qual-e-Naw PRT in that area. The PRT focuses the majority of its time and resources on rural areas surrounding the city.

"A total of 54 children, between two months and nine years old, were seen at the Shamail Daria clinic," said Spanish ISAF Public Affairs Officer Lieutenant Colonel Vicente Dalmau.

Es que dudo muchísimo de que haya la más puñetera idea de que hacemos allí o que aportamos a ISAF. ¿Nadie en el MinisDef o los Cuarteles Generales se ha planteado que todos nuestros aliados han optado por equipar y entrenar a los afganos en combatir talibanes? No en logística y servicios de base, no simplemente acompañarlos en los convoyes, COGERLOS Y FORMARLOS 2 MESES DE FORMA INTENSIVA, si los despliegues de cuatro meses hacen que esto no sea algo práctico pues se subcontrata, coño... que hasta los alemanes lo están haciendo.

España cuenta con un plan para desplegar más de un millar de militares en Afganistán con el objetivo de reforzar el proceso electoral afgano. Según nuevos datos recabados para esas fechas habrá en zona de operaciones hasta 1.400 militares provenientes en su mayoría de las Islas Canarias. El pasado 15 de abril partió de las Islas personal del MCAN (Mando de Canarias) para la instrucción del Ejército Nacional afgano. Estos efectivos están divididos en unidades denominadas “Equipos Operativos de Asesoramiento y Enlace” (‘Operational Mentoring and Liaison Team’, OMLT). Los militares españoles se unen a la unidad instruida, de entidad batallón, durante todo el periodo de instrucción hasta que el grupo afgano adquiere una operatividad contrastada. Está previsto que en julio se produzca el relevo del Equipo de Reconstrucción Provincial (PRT) de Qala-e-Now y la Compañía de Maniobra de Herat. Los efectivos pertenecen en su mayoría al Regimiento canario Soria 9. Entre los meses de junio y julio comenzarán las rotaciones para el denominado Grupo de Refuerzo Electoral. Los efectivos pertenecen al Regimiento Tenerife 49 y el Batallón de Zapadores XVI. Al frente del grupo estará un Teniente Coronel de Infantería para dos compañías de fusiles de infantería y una compañía de Plana Mayor y Servicios (mantenimiento, transmisiones, sanitarios, UAV,s, etc.). El número de militares a desplegar será próximo a los 450. Hay que recordar que actualmente en Afganistán permanecen alrededor de 780 militares españoles. A esta cifra hay que sumarle los miembros de la Guardia Civil y 150 ingenieros militares de Salamanca que se encargarán de la construcción de la nueva base española en Qala-e-Now que, por cierto, está sufriendo retrasos. El contingente, alcanzará la cifra de casi 1.400 soldados.

Me ha llegado al oido q despues del verano la mision de afganistan aumentara de dos a cinco compañias aparte de la logistica y la plana de mando. Claro tambien es cierto q el batallon electoral esta formado por dos compañias pero se ha pedido un refuerzo de una tercera q la pondria la legion por lo cual la mision llegaria a tener 5 compañias las cuales relevara y no la retiraran como dice este individuo. Conclucion afganistan seria la mision en donde mas soldados ha desplegado ESPAÑA desde q se integro en la otan.

Jaleo como siempre en Farah y Herat, y también como siempre poca información de Badghis:

5 miembros de la policía afgana muertos en un ataque contra un Check Point
Taliban militants attacked a police checkpoint in the Afghan west, killing five cops on Saturday night

http://quqnoos.com/index.php?option=com ... &Itemid=48

Farah Provincial Deputy Governor, Mohammad Younus Rasooli confirmed the incident, and said it occurred in Kariz Shikhan area of the province.

Farah is neighboring Helmand in the Afghan south, where it is known the main stronghold of the Taliban militants.

The provincial official said foreign terrorists from Pakistan and Chechnya were also seen among the assailants.

Mr. Rasooli added that the Taliban had also received casualties in return fires, but no exact figures have been claimed.

Disabled suicide bomber in failed Afghan attack

HERAT, Afghanistan (AFP) — A disabled man packed explosives into his artificial leg and detonated inside the compound of an Afghan provincial governor on Monday but managed only to kill himself, police said.

The bomber hobbled into the heavily guarded compound of the governor in the western city of Herat and exploded his bombs after police fired at him, deputy provincial police chief, Delawar Shah Delawar, told AFP at the scene.

"Today a suicide attacker, a disabled man who placed his bombs in his artificial leg, was able to enter the governor's compound. He exploded himself after our police fired at him," he said.

"The only casualty was the bomber," he added.

Delawar said intelligence reports tipped off authorities about a possible suicide attack on the compound, which houses the provincial governor and other government entities.

The blast took place about 500 metres (1,600 feet) from the governor's office, the police official added.

The explosion shattered windows and scattered body parts of the attacker, including shards of his artificial leg, said an AFP reporter.

There was no immediate claim for the attack.

But Taliban militants, who have been waging an insurgency since the 2001 US-led invasion ousted them from power, frequently carry out suicide bombings on the Western-backed Afghan government and foreign military targets.

Y más jaleos en la zona de interés española, de nuevo FARAH:
Clash leaves Afghan police, 7 Taliban dead in W Afghanistan

Xinhua / April 23, 2009

Clash between Afghan police and Taliban militants in western Afghan province of Farah claimed the lives of one police and seven Taliban militants on Wednesday, provincial police chief said on Thursday.

"Militants on Wednesday stormed a police convey in Khaki Safid district killing one police and injuring another," Abdul Qhafar Watanyar told Xinhua.

He added that seven Taliban were also killed as police returned fire and over a dozen rebels sustained injuries.

Watanyar said that one teenager girl was killed in the clash.

Taliban militants who staged a violence comeback four years ago, have vowed to intensify their attacks against Afghan and international troops based in Afghanistan.

As a relatively stable and peaceful province, Farah has been experiencing escalating riots led by Taliban insurgents over the past several months.


Afghan "terps" risk lives to work with U.S. forces
By Golnar Motevalli

Thu Apr 23, 6:24 am ET

FARAH CITY, Afghanistan (Reuters) – Ahmad Shakib says he knows he is risking his life to work for U.S. troops in Afghanistan, but with a casual shrug and an idiomatic American twang, he laughs off the danger.

"Afraid of the Taliban? No, I'm the man," said Shakib, 22, one of thousands of Afghans recruited to work with U.S. and NATO forces as interpreters, or "terps."

Terps have been killed alongside U.S. and NATO colleagues on operations, and others have been targeted by militants who accuse them of collaborating with foreign forces.

The U.S. government offers military interpreters the prospect of an immigrant's visa to the United States after two years. Shakib says that's what tempts some. But he'd do it anyway.

"I like this job. I like helping the people, helping the Americans. The way they do their job, I just love it," he said.

"My family worry about me. The say you're in danger. But it's the way I like it."

His job means he can no longer go back to Kandahar, the southern city that was the birthplace of the Taliban in the 1990s, where he went to school and his brother still lives.

"(A relative) could say 'oh by the way, my cousin is an interpreter, he's working with the Americans'. So they (the Taliban) will be like let's go and pop him," Shakib said, using U.S. slang for an assassination.

"Bad guys are everywhere. If they get information of course they are going to harm me. But I don't care."

MORE THAN JUST LANGUAGE

Captain Christopher Garvin, who trains the Afghan army in Farah, a desert province on the Iranian border, says he relies on his terps for more than just the language.

"Coming here the first challenge was to fully understand the culture and how they like to operate," said Garvin. "Having a good interpreter is the key."

Garvin's interpreter, Yama Ellyassi, said he joined the Americans in part because of the pay and the prospect of a visa, but mainly because it offered a chance to help defeat the Taliban who imprisoned and beat his father while in power before 2001.

On an Afghan army base last week, Ellyassi stood between Garvin and Afghan Lieutenant-Colonel Khalil Nehmatullah as they discussed final plans for an opium poppy eradication mission.

He has had to learn military lingo on the job, and says he practices making sure he has the technical terms correct.

"A minor mistake can cause a big problem," he said.

He relates the story of an interpreter who mistakenly told a unit of Afghan police to "fire" when he should have said "ceasefire." The mistranslation resulted in several casualties and a mission which ended in disaster.

Shakib said sometimes he is required to translate a tone of voice and body language, as well as just words.

"A lot of times when you are translating English you have to use something from yourself also. If a guy is angry you have to get that across."

Soldiers need to be careful to make sure their interpreters understand their slang, said Sergeant Brian Wood, who works on Garvin's team and manages the terps.

"They can translate it word for word but to them it doesn't make sense like it does for us. Like 'to beat feet' would be to run away. To them it's like, 'What's that? You want to beat my feet?'," he said.

"I mean lost in translation is a given, it'll happen here and there," Wood said. "Here in combat, whether in Iraq or Afghanistan, with interpreters, their word could literally mean the difference between life or death."
