    US military officials tasked to shift military equipment from Afghanistan to USA are in a clutter after the exit routes for them seem blocked.

    Right now, US have 48000 military vehicles, 30000 soldiers and around 81.5 million items that need to be moved from Afghanistan back to the US. However, all the exit routes for US army are either blocked or barred with obstacles.

    It is being said that the total cost of items that need to be shipped is around $33 billion.

    According to a news story on RT, Russia, after the imposition of sanctions by the west and especially the US is in ‘no way’ going to let the US army use its routes to withdraw its forces from Afghanistan.

    The route of 3000 miles passes through Afghanistan to Kazakhstan to Russia and then to north European sea. Around 75% US military equipment was supplied to Afghanistan through this channel however due political turmoil it’s unsafe to travel.

    On the other hand, the second route goes through Peshawar in Pakistan to Karachi and then into the Arabian Sea.

    A Retired US military official Doug McGreger, sees it as the ‘best and the fastest’ way to get out of Afghanistan.
