I say we launch a masive air strike with stealth fighters at night, followed by UAVs...and do this perpetually for 30 days while troop infiltrate the mountains and explode "superstink bombs" in all the caves, "super-duper-stink & itch bombs" in all the caves!! then....then run support cables from mountain apex to mountain apex & mount them with these new traffic cameras (the kind that we see at intersections around the town & state) and remote controlled machine guns--gatlin would be nice--that slide along the cabling. Build trolleys (as in Colorado) to take troops from one mountain top to the next rapidly, and take control of those mountains fast...the valleys can be controlled with the use of vapors & gases like tear gas or more superstink gas .
Why is America there anyway, none of the 911 attackers came from Afghanistan, there are many troubling references, on TV, to Blackwaters owner's publicly stated crusade to destroy Islam and make a profit while doing it, really, please explain why we are there. It seems there are several parties to a conflict like this, there is the under dog, in this case the Afghans, Those who are precieved to be the aggressors, as seen by the under dogs and their allies, and the eventual winners, those who come to the aid of the under dogs and their friends, these are the ones who reap all the good will of the legitimate inhabitants. Why do the Afghans fight so hard against such fearful odds;
Quote "to every man upon this earth death cometh soon or late, and how can man die better than fighting fearsome odds, for the ashes of his Fathers, and the Temples of his Gods"
If we stay the course we may win, but it won't be easy!
