This forum has a long history, by interent standards anyway-unfortunately it has been abandoned for far too long due to real life circumstances knocking the heck out of what had been my very real desire to keep this board alive and well forever so that all of us could meet here and communicate with each other everyday.

I'm not sure that a forum like this is even needed nowadays since the advent of facebook, etc...but I hope that this once thriving BB does bring some of us back together again and that maybe some new folks will join us as well!

The Taliban Strikes Back

brings back some memories of our battels in NAM.

After six years of ignoring Afghanistan, things have gotten bad enough to force American officials to pay attention.

After six years of ignoring Afghanistan, things have gotten bad enough to force American officials to pay attention. For the past two months, U.S. casualties in Afghanistan have been higher than in Iraq. And on July 13, Afghanistan definitely got everybody's attention when nine U.S. troops were killed in what Wikipedia is now officially calling "The Battle of Wanat." Three days after the battle, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), the U.S.-dominated military force running the country, announced it's abandoning Wanat completely.

Let's start with a close-up of the battle, then zoom out to the overall situation in Afghanistan. Wanat is in Kunar Province, along the border with Pakistan. It looks a lot like Northern Wyoming: mountain country, steep slopes with pine forests running down to fast, cold rivers. Some of the photos I've seen from Kunar seem like stills from "The Sound of Music" or "Heidi," only some prankster has Photoshopped in a platoon of soldiers in desert camouflage.

The outpost that the United States had just set up in Wanat was supposed to disrupt Taliban supply lines from Pakistan. Instead, it became a tempting target for the local guerrillas, just like hundreds of other remote forward bases in other rural guerrilla wars from Southeast Asia to Algeria. Guerrillas usually avoid open combat with conventional forces, but when they do attack in force it's usually against the smaller, more vulnerable forward bases. The Wanat base was a very tempting target because it was still under construction.

It's not so easy to be sure what actually happened in the battle there on July 13. A big Taliban force -- big by guerrilla-war standards, meaning several hundred -- was able to mass outside the base without being detected. They attacked with rocket-propelled grenades, mortars and rifle fire, managed to take part of the base, and then either withdrew or were forced back into the town of Wanat, where the fighting continued in the ruins. The NATO troops had massive air support, and faced with that, the guerrillas dispersed into the hills. Then, three days later, the U.S. forces, who have de facto command of southeastern Afghanistan, also withdrew. Officially Wanat is now in the hands of the Afghan police, but that's a joke.

You can tell how ridiculous that claim is by looking carefully at the casualties from the battle. This is a good example of how to read war news carefully, how to read between the lines of standard press coverage. It's almost like a story-problem for war nerds. Here are the figures: There were 70 defenders in that base, 45 U.S. troops and 25 ANA (Afghan National Army) troops. That's about a 60/40 split. So if both groups fought equally effectively, you'd expect more than a third of the casualties to be from the ANA. But that's not the story the casualty figures tell you. Every defender who died was American; no Afghan troops died. Three-quarters of the wounded were also American, only four out of 19 were Afghan. What that tells you is that the ANA didn't fight. They left it to the Americans. That's a pattern you often see in guerrilla wars: The locals fight very hard against the occupiers, but not very well for them. So in Vietnam, the Viet Cong fought like demons and the South Vietnamese Army (ARVN) barely fought at all, even though they were from the same ethnic background.

There are a lot of very familiar patterns in this story. If you zoom out from Wanat and look at the bigger situation in southern Afghanistan, you've got the classic ingredients for a long, bloody guerrilla war: a big ethnic group on both sides of an artificial border, difficult terrain, and dirt-poor peasants with a long tradition of fighting just about everyone who comes along, from Alexander the Great to the 19th century British. The Pakistani/Afghan border is 1,500 miles long, and the people living on both sides of it are Pashtun, the biggest ethnic group in Afghanistan and the support base of the Taliban. The Taliban started as a Pashtun resistance to the Northern Alliance warlords, mostly Uzbeks and Tajiks, who took power after the Soviet pullout in 1989, and the Taliban is still mostly Pashtun. The reason you don't hear so much about the ethnic angle is simple: Neither side wants to push that angle in its propaganda. The Taliban would like to claim to be defending Islam, and the Americans are happy to go along with that, so they can say we're fighting Islamic terror. But the fact is that the Taliban stands for old-school Pashtun tradition more than for Islam. And the Taliban is divided even further, with complicated loyalties to local warlords and tribal chiefs.

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

duane no comment, come on now isn't this Seantor obama's doing?

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

well mike ivy barackHUSSIEN obama says he wil make the fight againsyt the islamic terrorists in afghanistan the central focus of the war on terrorism. although i doubt if he would fight against his own people.
Now as i understand it there were 9 americans killed in that battle you refered to but 100 taliban. the marines withdrew. They may reestablish that base. Hope fully they will make it stronger perhaps with propane nozzles in the barbed wire so that when it is attacked along with machineguns artilary etc. the u s forces can burn to death alive large numbers of the attackers and send them to their 72 goats allah and the prophet will provide them.

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

so now Seantor Obama is from Afghanistan, amazing thanks for the update.

Seems President Bush and crew forgot way back when to complete the Afghanistan mission against the Taliban, don't you think?

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

l didnt say HUSSIEN obama is from afghanistan. I said i didnt think he would fight the islamic terrorists The islamic terrorits foreign fighters from all over the countries of Islam are the ones doing the attacks Osama Bin Ladin was from saudi arabia his #2 was or is from Egypt. There is even an american in the mix.
You'll notice they dont launch atttacks very often and they are looking over their shoulders up at the sky wondering just when a mislle launched from a uav is going to interrupt their daily meal of dried goats meat and dates. I dont think Bin laden is still among the living . He hasnt been seen for years.

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

Seems you stated that he would not fight against his own people in Afghanistan seems to me you are indicating "his own country"

"Senator" obama is not from the middle east nor is muslim he is a Catholic. And what religon are you ?

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

When i said his people i was refering to the islamic terrorists from all over the countries of Islam. They have no aliegience to any particular nation state. Their alliegence is to the struggle to destroy the western nations. They will take these western nations and people over. That is what ibelieve barrackHUSSIEN obama believes in . He has yet (to my knowledge) to produce a valid birth certificate from the state of hawaii. I can produce a valid birth certficate. Why cant he?

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

Man some people just go on and on and on.

I Agha Dilbar have a Great Peace Plan for Kashmir, Afghanistan, Chechnya, Middle East, Iraq , iran and Pakistan to stop and eliminate Suicidal Bomb Attacks and State Terrorism, all over The World. Some Powerful Underground Groups want to begin 3rd World War for their worst intentions.(To occupie the oil resouries of underdelop and weak coundries of the world) World should remember that religion Islam is a religion of Peace Security, Fraternity and Love. We Muslims are not concerned with any sort of Terrorism; Terrorists are only using the name of Islam. Likewise people using the name of Islam to pretence are not Muslims. They are only Terrorists. I, Agha Dilbar on emergency ground want to present solid suggestions to International Community, regarding their policies on War against Terrorism, Can be saved from Economic Crisis, I should be given a chance to make Open Speech and Dialogue, on the leading TV News Channels to eliminate Poverty, Unemployment and Lawlessness(Sueside Bombing and State Terrorism) at International level. I am warning the International Community that according to my previous Research spread over a period of 7-years; it is evident that sufficient Intentional or Unintentional efforts have not been made to eradicate The Root Causes of Terrorism in all its forms and manifestations (Suicide Bombing,State Terrorisim and Destructive Tendencies). As a result thereof it is quite possible that there may be dramatic hundred times (100%) Increase in the Incidences of Terrorism and Suicide Bombing in the near future. For the sake of World Peace, I therefore request the International Community to provide me an Opportunity to explain to them, the root causes of World Terrorism and Suicide Bombings as to take bold steps to put an end to its basic causes. In Nutshell instead of using Brute Force,(Through State Terrorism) try to solve the matter through Table Talk. I should convince those who are on the wrong track that they are their Well - wisher and are interested to develop Friendship for mutual Progress. In the Reward of my Sincere Services, I please be given a chance of Official Visit to Interested Countries for Elaborating my Great Peace Plan before the Head of States and other concerned Higher Authorities. Regards****************
Agha Dilbar,s Urgent Peace Letter No.2) Subject: Agha Dilbar request for a chance of Open Speech and Dialogue To World Community for Peace. We want Peace not War. I Agha Dilbar have a Great Peace Plan for the World Community. This is A Great Treasure for Humanity. After following my Great Peace Plan, War on Terror will fight through UN Principles.

Any question about my Great Peace Plan? Write directly to me. Thanks and Regards.
Agha Dilbar,s Urgent Peace Letter No. 3) Subject: Make the UN Peace Force strongest force of the World to save The World coming from on 3rd World War and State Terrorism, I Agha Dilbar warns the World Community that Israel should be Stopped from genocide and atrocities committed in Palestine and Labnan, In the wake of these Atrocities there must be more Suicidal Bombing and many other Horrible Incidences like 9/11 Attacks due to revenge, which can cause 3rd World War Any time.1) To begin the coming 3rd World War the owners of many Armament producing Factories are playing their roll very actively; so that they can get New Orders after the old stock get exhausted during the 3rd World War. I am putting on alert, UN, Head of States, Parliaments, Political Parties, TV News Channels, International Newspapers and Magazines, Universities, Think Tanks, Amnesty International, welfare NGO,s and Govt Contacts all over the World, that after The 3rd World War the Progress and Prosperity of all the Rich, Developed, Under Developed, Poor and Backward Countries of the World will become a dream In the wake of their Economic Crisis.3) Current Powerful, Rich and Developed Nations should keep in mind, That Even if they conquer the Weak Poor and Backward Nations their Armies will Have to face an upended Gorilla War in the occupied regions for the Next Five, Ten or Twenty Years, which might result in the destruction of? Their Defense Power and Economy. Here is a live example of Palestine, Kashmir, Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq.4) According to Agha Dilbar strategy, the entire giant disputes of the World Like Palestine, Kashmir Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq could only be solved Through UN Peace Force, after making it the strongest force in the World.

Agha Dilbar,s Urgent Peace Letter No.4)Subject: Agha Dilbar,s request to Rich and Developed Nations not to crush Underdeveloped and Poor Nations with State Terrorism or by starting 3rdWorld War .As per my research the State Terrorism in Kashmir, Palestine, Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq may cause of 3rd World War and Hundred Times Suicide Bombing all over the World. My message to UN is to crush the State Terrorism through UN Peace Force in Kashmir, Palestine and Chechnya. Also in the war affected areas. UN Peace Force should make practical efforts to solve Disputes with Table Talk, through Friendship Progress and Prosperity; All over the World .I hope the UN would be successful by implementing my Great Peace Plan, Friendship, Progress and Prosperity in disputed countries all over the World. If UN failed to bring Peace in these countries then 3rd World War and World Terrorism would be resulting in death of 200 Million People and Complete destruction of World Economy. Remember as per my research the next 3rd World War would not be an Atomic War, but it will be fought through traditional newly invented Dangerous Weapons. There will be no doubt that Developed and Rich Countries Forces Equipped with newly invented Dangerous Weapons will win the 3rd World War. In case of starting 3rd World War, Developing Countries and their Survival Countries involved in the long Gorilla War for their survival. Resultantly the World Community will totally collapse. Therefore in view above stated positions, the Developed Countries, possessing Fatal Weapons Should, instead of conquering the Under Developed, Poor Countries by Force, May achieve the goal through Friendship, Progress and Prosperity with the help of UN, so that permanent World Peace should be brought.

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

Be Kinda cool if you could Pop a paragraph in once and a while. I keep losing my place and that alone makes me mad enough to launch a Nuke!

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

What do you suggest ssgmike?

We could nuke the country and the northwester portions of Pakistan. Other than that, we seem to have only the options of surrendering and dying, or continuing to fight on against terrorism in Afghanistan ans elsewhere.

I agree with you monster paragraph was too long and too confusing to brother to read.

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

Jeez, Real American, just by using that alias you rub me the wrong way. Who is making the decision as to who is and who is not a "real American?" Personally, I tend to doubt that anyone who really understood the concepts on which America was founded would use such a moniker.

And what is it with you guys and wanting to surrender all the time? Now that the idiots who wasted the last 7 years, several thousand American lives and more than a trillion dollars of U.S. treasure are leaving office, maybe we can get down to business and take out the people who were actually responsible for the attack.

After that,we do what is necessary - but we don't get stupid and start pretending that any group of terrorist thugs can either defeat or destroy America. And we don't keep talking about some kind of silly forever war.

Indeed, we pitch that stupid "war on terror" terminology in the trash can where it belongs. War is between nation-states and there is no country called Terror. Terrorism is just a tactic.

Dealing with disparate groups of thugs, even well organized thugs with the same basic religion, is a matter for a strong intelligence activity combined with high power police activities.

Nor do we declare every muslim on the planet to be enemy. Most of them are just like most of us - too busy raising kids and getting on with life to really give a **** about much of the rest of the world. We should not give a crap about the ones who burn American flags on their street corners or who smack pictures of American Presidents with their shoes. Let 'em jump up and down and holler - as long as they are doing it in their neighborhoods, BFD.

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

Real American, whom ever you are what I suggest is what I have stated for years, send over every politian with one mag of ammo and let them fight it out, then maybe our men and women can get the job done.

Nuke no way jose, kill thousands of innocent people again. Sorry the only way to win a war or a battle is to keep the politicans and embedded reporters out of our way.

We do not retreat, our politicans do, just like they did during Vietnam, our politicans retreated because they know not what they are doing.

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

Yes mike ivy the polititions did retreat in the face of communisim. Your Democrat politions> Who gained a veto proof majority in congress in 1974. So President Ford could not support the south Vietnamese or even our own troops left in Vietnam. The democrats did deny any help against communism because they were THEN and are NOW tied completely to communisim and terrorism. We will all learn shortly when the ONE shows his true colors just how much the democrats are tied to destroying the U S and the american people.

Ssgmike, I can't argue with your statement.

Jack, Take a chill pill and have a Merry Christmas.

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

Jack B is quite correct about "terror" being a tactic and not a definable enemy. Any "Real American" would be insulted by the political strategist that coined the expression "War on Terror". Creating a mythical enemy with no valid credentials yet grouping it in a package that suggests it's existence is another way of saying to the American people, "we know that you are stupid, we like it that you are stupid and we intend to behave as if you are stupid."

Count me out!

As I take notice to this as the islamc world used New York city on 9-11 to instruct this country to see who is "REEL AMERICANS".

They are the ones fighting for this Country and not worrying about the "Political Strategist".

And If anyone coined that it was the world of Islam.

That's all i needed to know.

With all due respect, I hardly think that 19 deranged and misguided Muslims are representive of the Islamic world.

Re: The Taliban Strikes Back

Well, 11Echo40, look at it this way - Bush bought into Cheney and Rumsfeld's silly-assed notion of how to fight a "war on terror" and in doing so went a very long way to giving Osama Bin Laden exactly what he wanted.

Don't you really think that it would have been better if we had recognized that our true enemy was the folks who planned and carried out the attack against us - a relatively small group of thugs with their own motives - and if we had then simply hunted their asses down and put Bin Ladin's head on a pike about 6 years ago?

Instead, too many people bought into the mind-numbingly stupid idea that we needed to make war on millions of people who don't give a flying **** about us and who are no true threat at all.

I saw Bush on TV recently saying how after 9/11 he gave the Taliban two choices - either give up Al-Queda or share Al-Queda's fate. The Taliban chose the 2nd option and it worked out very well for them. They - and the leadership of Al-Queda - have spent the years since 9/11 living comfortably on the Pakistan-Afghan border. So much for Bush's "You can run but you can't hide" rhetoric, eh?

During that same period, we have been breaking our military and our treasury killing Iraqis - none of whom had participated in the attack on the U.S. That absolutely has to be one of the most stupid responses to aggression that any nation have ever made - let the people who attacked you sit fat and happy where they can continue planning future attacks while wasting resources getting bogged down in a country with no connection to the original attack.
