Reiterating previous comments, several officials in the Obama Administration say that they will soon launch a massive offensive against Afghanistan’s Kandahar Province.
They provided new details, however, saying that the Marjah offensive going on right now was simply a “prelude to larger, more comprehensive operations.” Marjah’s offensive is the single largest single the 2001 invasion, but it seems officials are already looking past the operation and its mixed results to even bigger things.
But while the agricultural community of Marjah had some value to the Taliban, it was mostly by virtue of it being entirely out of the Karzai government’s control since the 2001 US invasion. Kandahar, on the other hand, is the Taliban’s “heartland,” and resistance is likely to be enormous.
Officials say that control over Kandahar city is the primary goal for 2010. But it has been one of NATO’s primary goals for the better part of the last decade, and while the number of troops being thrown at the region is increasing, the strategy seems roughly unchanged.

sickening. Thec riches part of the world defends its Freedom in the poorest country of the world.
US is running out of money and are becoming more desperate to control oil resources. They are making more and more mistakes becasue of it. Anarchy at home will grow as people are looseing patience with the war mongers as our society pays the price for their wars. The fat carl roves, , the bilderbergs will be hunted down and assissnated soon,they will be killed off by the revolution who are just about fed up with the murder lies and treamnet of lesser nations by them to line their pockets with blood soaked cash.They are evil weakling cowards. History will repeat itself once again.

Is there a single individual in the Obama administration that knows anything about history? About military tactics? Don't they know that we defeated the mighty British empire using the same guerrilla tactics now being employed by the Taliban? Or did that happen too long ago for these morons to remember?
In a few weeks we will surely read about skirmishes here and there. A few bad guys will get killed, along with a bunch of innocent civilians. How many people will we displace with this latest offensive? No one cares.
And what will we have accomplished when the Kandahar offensive wraps up? More stuffed body bags, more billions squandered, and the need for more troops to quell the uprising. Meanwhile, the Taliban will bleed us dry with their hit-and-run tactics. Death by a thousand cuts.
We are committing military and economic suicide. Why?

probably appeals to tree hugging bi-sexuals like you and your
parents, I happen to be a death-dealing, blood-crazed warrior who
wakes up every day just hoping for the chance to dismember my
enemies and defile their civilizations." – Generation Kill (2008)
