let see, Westpoint
Taliban does not rule? you mean in The main citie like Kabul were US security is strong right? And nato seem necessary to send troops for security
during elections, hum.........I guess my news sources are diferent from yours ritght?
Nearly three years after the U.S. military toppled the Taliban government in Afghanistan, it’s increasingly obvious that the military effort has
failed to fully defeat the enemy, which has regrouped and now threatens efforts to create a stable government there.
Whoa!!!!!!!!!!!!I am a what you call me (kind of funny you offer no proof of your claims)
• Election workers are being abducted, shot and beheaded.
• Voter-registration sites are being bombed, even when they’re located at mosques.
• The Taliban has begun delivering ominous “night letters” — notes slipped to local officials warning them not to help with upcoming elections.
And still the country manage to register (90%) percent of voters right?
Perhaps the 90% comes from the main cities where security good thanks to american troops right? Oh but the rest of the country well that does not
Much of the rest of Afghanistan is controlled by powerful warlords who command large private militias. They are largely financed by a booming and
lucrative export trade in opium and heroin.
Now we have warlords right? beside taliban.
In southern and eastern Afghanistan, where Osama bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Omar are believed to be hiding, the Taliban effectively controls
large swaths of territory. U.S. military officials say foreign Islamist fighters and al Qaeda financiers are aiding the Taliban.
Yeah taliban is gone. Right?
