First we announce it 2 weeks in advance, then we get close (30 miles away) and wait another week. Reckon there is really anyone still there waiting? Heck they'll probably go to Kabul & throw a party while our boys are looking at their commander like the idiot he is.
Finally we have somebody who understands our weaknesses and strengths. Our biggest weaknesses are 1. We do not want any of our soldiers to die; 2. We want to kill the bad guys but no damage to innocent.
Our biggest strengths are 1. Satellites by NGC 2. Global Hawks by NGC.
I love technology, God made man with the notion of good and evil!!! Im only guessing but I believe the space station is spying on the Taliban from the air. And that the two week notice was to watch them move. Great Strategy if you ask me. This is my opinion.
