Afghanistan is not Poland, completely different, learn some facts before you run your mouth.
You don't even understand your own propaganda?
300k IN 20 YEARS are your words.
Won't even bother to check if that is correct or not, hoping it is not just bullshit taken straight from your ass.
The number means that you managed to train 15k conscripts a year.
It is a joke for a country with such a young population, and being at war.
Poland trained more than your great "achievement" placed here to impress us I guess in three conscript rotations. Functionally 1.5 years.
Your whole Afghan extravaganza is a sick joke just from the beginning, but this sick joke cost hundreds of thousands of dead bodies.
Including US and allied soldiers.
Our soldiers, some of them being my friends.
My company sponsors the wounded veterans' who served both in Iraq and Afghanistan treatments each year.
All that blood is pointless, all that pain&suffer of both soldiers and the civilian population is degraded, all the sacrifice is pointless.
But when we look at that from a wider perspective, there is something even more disturbing.
Not only you have lost another war, being humiliated in front of the whole world.
This is just another army you constructed, that proved to be incapable of withstanding any pressure.
The same story has already happened in Iraq, and those are Iranian instructors who hardened the army when you have been told to GTFO.
They wiped out the Kurds, whom - again - you have trained for years, in one single blow.
Georgian army in 2008, you have invested in them and trained them for half a decade, just to watch them running like rabbits when first Russkie tank rolled out of Kodori tunnel.
You have trained the Ukrainians, hell, they used to have a contingent in Iraq, remember? The whole Ukrainian army was melted and flushed down the toilet by the irregular forces of the local population, with small assistance from the Russian army.
You have trained the terrorists in Syria, and Russkies simply rubbed them along the desert without any serious challenge.
US assisted the training and equipped all of the Gulf satrapies, and they all combined are being bitten by the band of guys running in rubber sandals, yapping "yalla yalla, death to America, death to Israel!"
Hell, each and any army you have trained in the last 2 decades, was wiped out when only someone seriously took some action against them.
Being a US citizen, I would be not only shocked but quite terrified by that fact, because simple logic proves that your "mighty army" is just the same.
The only thing you still have, is extreamy efective propaganda machine. But it is getting less and less effective each day.
