NATO forces are planning to launch another major military offensive in the Helmand Province, this time targeting the entire central portion of the restive Afghan province, which remains under Taliban control.
According to British Major General Nick Carter, the invasion force would aim to “assert control” over the region in the biggest offensive yet, adding that “if we’re going to win the argument on behalf of the Afghan government” they couldn’t allow those regions to remain unoccupied.
Officials say they are unsure when the operations will begin, but adding that “it’s a matter of timing, not the principle.” Maj. Gen. Carter predicted that Afghan tribesmen would welcome them with open arms.
But they also said the offensive was in part designed to aid the “buy out” of Taliban forces, with British General Sir David Richards insisting that the negotiations should come from a “position of relative strength” over the Taliban.

It won't do any good. The Taliban will just go to ground and come back up somewhere else. Whack-a-mole!
where are the colonialists going to find the funds required ? its not like the old days where the english would receive a yearly payment in Gold. the Gold in the potential Colonies is long gone just like in the privately owned federal reserve of the usa.
All of the middle class peoples of all of the nations that are members of NATO need to understand this: NATO is not our friend. NATO has become an offensive military alliance that exists solely for the benefit of the enormously wealthy ruling establishments of both America and Europe. NATO is no longer a defensive military alliance. Since the fall of the old Soviet empire, NATO has become nothing more than the enforcement arm of the American and European ruling establishments so that they can dictate business terms to the rest of the world. And the middle class peoples of both America and Europe pay for it all with their taxes and the blood of their children.
