You don't go into a fight without a plan and just imporvise until you know exactly what to do.
I would agree if we were giving them a rest, but we are not. I read somewhere today there will be 100,000 troops in afghanistan. We need to keep the pressure on them so when we pull out the taliban has not had the time or resources to create a major offensive. I would hope with this large of a force we could pull it off.PBO did nothing, but give the Tallies an 18 month period to rest and reconstitute their forces, so as to launch a major offensive after there are enough American troops withdrawn from the theater to stop them.
