"The composition of this equipment varies between American, Russian and Chinese military grade equipment to 3rd party equipment that provides little-to-no real protection."

Is 3rd party the correct term to use here? I am unsure. Tp271 (talk) 16:32, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

Where did you get your info pertaining to what service pistol the ANP uses because i know for a fact they use S&W M&P9 pistols not Sigmas. Cybrid87

External Links[edit]

The link for under external links is dead. I'm removing it and going to dig around to see if I can't find a comparable link Soldier.pitre (talk) 02:08, 14 October 2009 (UTC) Well, I couldn't find anything on the website. I did find a Canadian site that spoke about Afghan Security training and it had a "View Benchmarks". I put it under external links. Soldier.pitre (talk) 02:16, 14 October 2009 (UTC)


After adding the external link and re-reading the article, I realized that benchmarks 6, 7 and 8 of Canada's Priority 1 Training [...], bolster the credibility of the corruption section. I would like to add the following to the Corruption Within the ANP section of the article.

[...] Canada, currently deployed in the Kandahar Province, evidences this trend through three of its benchmarks (See External Links). Benchmark 6 discusses a training program in order to improve the ANP's operational capacity. Benchmark 7 discusses the building of prisons in order to support the police work. Benchmark 8 highlights the absence of any functioning judiciary. Without a functioning justice system, a police force is not capable of maintaining law & order, thus ensuring the safety of civilians. These benchmarks evidence the infancy of the Afghan justice system.

If there aren't any objections, or suggestions, or comments, I will go ahead and add it in a couple of days. This should ensure a proper reaction time to people watching this article. Soldier.pitre (talk) 02:36, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

New related article Ring of Steel (Kabul)[edit]

Based on recent news coverage, I created a stub for Ring of Steel (Kabul). Not sure yet on how to expand it (attacks despite it? EUPOL concept of ops?), but any input would be great. MatthewVanitas (talk) 18:44, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
