GARDEZ, Afghanistan (AP) — Taliban fighters, paid and trained by al-Qaeda, are pouring into Afghanistan from Pakistan, the top American commander in Afghanistan said Sunday. Lt. Gen. John Vines said the Taliban were trying to regroup and regain control of the country they ruled until ousted by the United States in late 2001. His comments to reporters traveling with Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld were the first confirmation from a top U.S. military official of reports of a Taliban resurgence out of Pakistan into Afghanistan.

They are just mad because their friends shooting at American in Iraq are getting all the media attention. Perhaps they think it is a good idea because of the exagerations of the media in regards to Iraq.

Good. We have no real control in Pakistan, but we can do whatever we think best in Afghanistan.

Maybe if we had more practice in preventing illegal border crossing this would be less of a problem. But where, oh where, could we find a suitable place to practice controlling a border? Too bad we cannot employ the same fatal tactics along our own border!

As many as 200 Taliban have been killed this week alone, Vines said.

That being the case, send more Taliban! And ship some MOABs to the bases supporting the Afghan operations.

Actually that's of more use against armored vehicles than camel borne dragoons.

The ragheads think they're playing with "infidels" along the lines of the former Soviet Army.

WRONG!
