HOW'S THAT FEARSOME SPRING OFFENSIVE GOING?:

Hundreds of Taliban Forces Surrounded (Associated Press, April 24, 2007)

Afghan forces have trapped up to 200 Taliban fighters in a southern village, possibly including the militia's military commander, demanding they surrender or come under attack, Afghan officials said Monday.

Afghan police and government officials said the suspected Taliban fighters were surrounded as they gathered for a meeting in the mountain village of Keshay in Uruzgan province on Saturday.


The central fact of the WoT remains unchanged: any time the enemy is "strong" enough to gather in significant numbers he just presents an easier target for us. The war may not be much fun for us, but it is unloseable.

But Lord Reid has said that we've lost.

Nothing weird about it. All one need do is survey the balance of forces. When every other team is prepared for no more than pre-school T-ball, we know in advance who shall win the World Seeries.

Super, someone else leaves a comment attacking the thesis as "weird" and using a "You don't know which team will win the world series," image.

Then Y.O.S. comes to the defense of the home team, whereupon the first comment is deleted, leaving mine hanging out in the breeze.
