Pravda.RU:
According to the plan of the US ground operation in Afghanistan, Kabul will be occupied by Turkish Special Forces. “Debka” information service reports that the plan of the ground operation is ready. If George Bush does not change it for any reason, the ground operation will go according to the following. 

Most soldiers will be transported to the battle field by helicopters. The helicopters will take off from the deck of the Kitty Hock aircraft carrier, which is now in the Arabian Sea, near Pakistan. The task of these forces is to occupy the Afghan capital. They will be supported by additional troops, also transported by helicopters from Pakistan. According to the plan, not only American, but also Turkish Special Forces will be part of this group. The Turkish forces are to be an occupational force in Kabul. Americans seriously watch the Muslim world’s reaction to the events in Afghanistan. They probably suppose that the Turkish presence will not allow one to call the Afghan operation a “crusade." 

One more task of US ground forces is to suppress the opposition of forward groups of the Taliban blocking the advance of the Northern Alliance’s forces to the capital. That is a double task: on one hand, to pave the way to the capital for the Northern Alliance, on the other hand, not to admit them to the capital. Debka explains it in this way: Americans do not want the Northern Alliance’s tanks to appear in Kabul. The tanks are of Russian origin, so, according to Americans, the tank crews might be Russian as well. Though Russia did not confirm its assistance to the Northern Alliance to be of that kind. Moreover, the Debka information service stated that on September 23, during a telephone conversation, a kind of oral treaty has been concluded between Putin and Bush. According to this treaty, Washington confirms that Moscow can participate in forming theAfghan post-war government. At the same time, according to this treaty, Russian troops should not enter Kabul. 

One more group will arrive in Afghanistan from Tajikistan and will occupy border lines near to Kandagar and Jelalabad. The landing places are to be controlled by US Special Forces. Special task groups will gather reconnaissance information, fix targets of bombardments, and carry out battles with forward groups of “Afghan Arabs” directly under the command of bin Laden. 

Last week, families of the “Afghan Arabs” in Egypt, Jordan, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon got to know about their beloved ones’ deaths in Afghanistan. There is no information about US losses. According to some reports, the Afghan capital is to be partly controlled by American, British, and German task groups and Pakistan reconnaissance groups. The Taliban's forces will leave Kabul in two directions: toward the Northern Alliance’s troops and to the northeast. In Kabul, only separated groups of the Taliban will remain. They will maraud and mine streets. The troops leaving Kabul will intend to force their way to Gindukush. If they manage to accomplish this, they will have enough food to hold out for the whole winter. The day before the bombardments, mullah Omar instructed their commander not to give up if Americans drive them against the wall. According to the plan, the advanced groups of the coalition must disarm the Taliban, while other battle-worthy forces will force their way to Gindukush. Military specialists suppose the most dangerous thing - mountain battles – is yet to come. Though Osama bin Laden could any time open the second front in the Middle East, in Middle Asia, and in the Balkans, while launching a terror campaign in the USA. 

Bin Laden himself, Americans suppose, is going to leave Afghanistan. There are three spots in the world where terrorist number one could hide himself. Theu are Somali, Yemen. and Chechnya. Today, Osama seems to go by ambulance. It is not known whether or not it this good protection or not, especially taking into account the fact that Americans bombed so many peaceful targets. The US Special Services do not exclude the possibility that Osama bin Laden might manage to pass through the border or just to fly out, regardless of all the troubles of air travel. American politicians are more self-assured. There is a rumour in the Senate that bin Laden will be caught no later than the mid-November. However, all sources are united on one opinion: bin Laden is still in Afghanistan, moving from one cave to another. One or several women, aids, and body guards accompany him.

Kabul Akan Dikuasai Turki

Mengikut rencana Amerika mengenai operasi serangan daratnya di Afghanistan, Kabul akan dikuasai oleh Pasukan Tentera Khas Turki. Demikian yang dilaporkan oleh perkhidmatan maklumat “Debka”.Rencana operasi darat itu memang sudah siap. Kalaulah George Bush tidak membuat pertukaran, kerana sebab tertentu, demikianlah rancangannya. Kebanyakan askar itu akan diangkut ke kawasan operasi dengan menggunakan helikopter. Helikopter itu akan bertolak daripada kapal induk Kitty Hawk, yang kini berlabuh di Lautan Arab, berdekatan Pakistan. Sebarang sokongan pasukan pembantu akan diangkut dengan helikopter daripada pengkalan di Pakistan. Mengikut rencananya, bukan sahaja pasukan Amerika, malahan juga pasukan Turki yang akan terlibat dalam kumpulan ini. Amerika beranggapan kehadiran Turki itu akan menyingkirkan sebarang tanggapan bahawa operasi mereka itu berbau satu “perang salib”.

Satu lagi tugas tentera Amerika ialah menyekat kemaraan pasukan Taliban daripada menghalang kemaraan pasukan Pakatan Utara menuju Kabul. Ini adalah tugas berganda; satu untuk memudahkan kemaraan askar Pakatan Utara bergerak ke Kabul, di sebaliknya tidak membenarkan mereka memasuki ibu negara Afghanistan itu. Debka memberikan penjelasan betapa Amerika tidak mahu membenarkan kereta kebal Pakatan Utara kelihatan di bandar Kabul. Semua kereta kebal itu adalah buatan Russia dan mengikut Amerika besar kemungkinannya juru pandu kereta kebal itu adalah askar Russia. Namun, Russia tidak memperakukan bantuannya kepada Pakatan Utara itu dalam apa bentuk pun.

Debka menyatakan pada September 23, melalui perbincangan telefon, ada satu bentuk janji mulut yang telah dicapai antara Putin dan Bush. Mengikut perjanjian itu, Washington memperakui betapa Moscow boleh melibatkan diri dalam rencana penubuhan kerajaan baru pasca Taliban. Pada waktu yang sama, askar Russia tidak dibenarkan memasuki Kabul. Ada satu lagi pasukan yang akan memasuki Afghanistan daripada Tajikistan dan akan mengawal antara Kandahar dan Jalalabad. Pusat pendaratan itu telah pun dikuasai oleh pasukan khas AS. Pasukan khas Amerika itu telah mendapatkan maklumat peninjauan sasaran tetapi untuk dibom dan telah melancarkan penerbangan untuk membedil beberapa kumpulan yang setia kepada Osama bin Laden.

Minggu lalu, ahli keluarga “Afghan Arab” yang tinggal di Mesir, Jordan, Yemen, Arab Saudi dan Lebanon telah menerima berita kematian saudara mereka di Afghanistan. Tidak pun diketahui akan kemalangan di pihak Amerika. Mengikut beberapa sumber, ibu negara Afghanistan itu sudah pun jatuh ke tangan satu pasukan bersama Amerika, British, Jerman, dan pasukan peninjau Pakistan. Pasukan Taliban telah meninggalkan Kabul dalam dua pasukan yang berpecah dua hala: satu menghala ke arah terkumpulnya tentera Pakatan Utara, dan satu lagi ke arah timur. Pasukan yang melepaskan Kabul bercadang menuju ke Gindukush, dan kalau berjaya mereka mampu bertahan sepanjang musim sejuk. Satu hari sebelum pengeboman Amerika itu, Mullah Omar telah memberi arahan kepada komandernya agar terus berjuang. Kalau Amerika mengasak mereka ke tembok sekali pun, mereka mesti terus berjuang.

Mengikut rencana Amerika ketumbukan awal pasukan bersekutu mesti menumpaskan Taliban, dan pasukan yang lain akan terus menghala ke Gindukush. Pakar tentera menjangka bahaya yang paling sengit – pertempuran di pergunungan – masih lagi belum berlaku. Ada yang khuatir Osama bin Laden berkemungkinan membuka satu medan perang kedua di Timur Tengah, di Asia Tengah dan di Balkan, sambil meneruskan kempen keganasan di 
Amerika Syarikat.

Amerika menjangkakan Osama Laden akan meninggalkan Afghanistan. Terdapat tiga tempat di dunia ini di mana beliau menyorok; Somalia, Yemen dan Chechnya. Hari ini, Osama dikatakan bergerak dalam kereta ambulan. Tidaklah diketahui apakah itu satu strategi yang baik, apabila difikirkan Amerika menyerang banyak sasaran yang dianggap tidak berbahaya. Pasukan khas AS tidak menolak kemungkinan Osama bin Laden dapat keluar dengan menggunakan perkhidmatan pesawat udara.

Ada pemimpin politik Amerika yang lebih merasa yakin. Ada juga desas-desus di Senat bahawa Osama Laden akan ditangkap tidak lewat dari pertengahan November. Walaupun semua sumber itu mempunyai kesamaan dalam satu pendapat. Osama Laden masih lagi berada di Afghanistan, berpindah randah daripada satu gua kepada dua yang lain. Terdapat beberapa wanita, pembantu dan pengawal peribadi yang menemaninya.
