    well I mean think about it. If you can go ahead, use the terrain, establish good TAI's, and then use someone like Harry to make the enemy come to you? You'd be a fool not to take advantage of it. Harry'd never be in any more danger than he is already, the PR out of it for the Royal Family and Great Britain in general would be awesome, and any Taliban dumb enough to poke their head up would get plastered.

    Draw the enemy into the open and use speed, terrain, tactics and fitepower to engage him close quarter combat and festroy him.

    The defetests are always crying about how the Taliban won't stand and fight. Well...

    Why did the USA invade Afganastan?

    Why is the USA still there?

    Why is the USA fighting the Taliban?

    To destroy the logistical base for al Qaeda.

    To try to build a state in which another such base cannot be established.

    Why is the USA fighting the Taliban?
    Because they are attempting to prevent that state from being built.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    According to Obama.....Because he thought it was the Right thing to do. Thought it was Right that Bush started there, and thought it was Right that ALL of Congress voted to go into Afghanistan.

    The Reason they are still.....well according to Obama they are asking us to stay there, train them, and in return we can hang out there for another 10yrs.

    Now the Reasons we are fighting the Taliban.....there are Several. But the most Important one, was due to taking American Lives and attacking American Soldiers. While we were Hunting down AQ members. The Taliban attacked First there. Course Karzi has changed things up since the Death of his Warlord Brother and Former King of the Opium Trade there.

    apdst-

    I thought it was the BushII apologists complaining the Taliwhackers don't stand out in the desert and wait for overwhelming air power to come for them?

    I seem to recall a similar strategy used in Vietnam, Dien Bien Phu, how did that work out? Course it could work as well as Khe Sahn, drawing all the US attention north while the VC infiltrated everyplace else.

    My point is just because you draw it up a certain way doesn't mean your enemy will be very cooperative and put their head in the noose.

    Again people forget kill ratios are more important to the armchair crowd than the combatants. Once again the young'ins forget the lesson General Powell attempted to teach them. Kill 10 to one, kill 20 to one and you still lose because they want it more and will gladly pay more to defeat the Devil's minions.

    The question that should be asked before launching an invasion aimed not at punishing but recasting so different a society into something they detest-

    what would we do in their place?

    Are you saying you wouldn't give 50 to one to drive the invaders out?
