Interview with Evgeny Khrushchev

Comments by U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates in LA Times sparked an international furore when he questioned whether NATO forces had the training to tackle the Taliban in Afghanistan. RT military analyst Evgeny Khrushchev says European allies over-react

“From the military point of view the counter-insurgency training is different to say the least between the U.S. and European NATO members. To add, unlike the British forces, other European members – from Old Europe or new members from the CIS countries – do not have any experience in counter-insurgency,” commented Evgeny Khrushchev.
