Afghan Taliban says spring offensive starts now ‹ Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion.

“The war in our country will not come to an end unless and until the foreign invading forces pull out of Afghanistan,” the Taliban said in a two-page statement released by the leadership council of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, which is what the movement calls itself.

everything about this makes my stomach sink.  They were planning on ramping up their efforts and then we just happen to get OBL (or whatever really happened)… i hope our loved ones stay safe.  It’s such a catch 22… the Taliban says the war will not end until foreign invaders leave.  Foreign invaders won’t leave until they know the Taliban won’t get stronger (or that’s what they’re telling us anyway, and who the hell knows where the truth lies in all of this).  So how is progress made? Just battle it out with our brute strength, taking as many causalities along the way as it takes?  *sigh* Light and Love to all overseas.
