    Something I just posted on Indymedia:

    Edit: God how I love to break the joy with my horrifying analysis of reality, inevitably resulting in gloom and doom. :D

    No, Phase 1 was "Kill Some of the People that Hate the U.S. With Other People That Will Eventually Hate the U.S."

    Vietnam anyone?

    Euronews reported on this as well, the territorry the Taliban is retreating into is pashtun territory which serves as a refuge to the taliban. Also taliban officials reportedly stated they were not running, they were regrouping and would rely on guerilla warfare to continue the war.

    the rules of Guerilla warfare:
    1) When the enemy advances we retreat
    2) When the enemy halts, we harass
    3) When the enemy seeks to avoid battle we attack
    4) When the enemy retreats we persue


    at the moment we are at step 1


    edit BTW this reminds me of Korea and WW2, in both wars one side retreated into it's supply lines (ww2, the russians korea the north koreans) and then completely crushed their oponents.
    The taliban does the same, they are retreating into territory where they have widespread support and can at least count on the population for support (in the form of supplies and intel).
