The thing is , that the war out there has never really been about terror cells. Everyone knows you cannot fight a cell based enemy with a full scale
army assault, wether supported from the air or not.
What is required to win that kind of fight, is a fully funded, and absolutely silent, invisible secret service division, cleared to perform
specificaly targeted kills, with small arms, and weapons of limited power and effect. Sending tanks, bunker busting air raids, and the machinery of a
costly and obvious army will just drive them from one area to another. However, if small , hard to track teams of professional killers, were to be
inserted and left to thier own devices, the problem people would be removed quicker, without the need for occupation, bases, and crucialy without the
need to present a target to the enemy. This is how this war should ALWAYS have been fought, if the motives for the war are in fact as stated when it
But no.. it was never going to be that way, because this war is just as much about mineral wealth, and getting in western contractors to do the work
to mine it, as much as anything else. Its just as much about securing poppy feilds, and ensuring that the vast majority of illegal narcotics remain
the property of black budget CIA opperatives/arms. The training of the Afghan army and police forces is merely a pleasant facade , put on this
situation by a US government that despite a leadership change, wouldnt know a good moral choice from a picture of Adolf Hitler , even if shown the two
side by side, and given hints. Really heavy hints.
