The snippet you quote sure reads like a win-win for the taliban,, and a lose-lose for the inapt American capitalist aggressors.
"For eight years the Taliban and Al-Qaeda have bogged down US and NATO troops in Afghanistan-all the while seizing territory and creating chaos in nuclear-armed Pakistan.
In mid October, under pressure from the US, Pakistan announced that it would launch a military campaign designed to destroy the Taliban, The Taliban responded with a series of brazen attacks against the Pakistani Army, the police, and civilians, leaving the US in doubt over Pakistans ability to secure its nuclear weapons, and its own ability to fight the agile Taliban in Afghanistan.
National Geographic Explorer was in Pakistan and Afghanistan during these explosive days documenting the fight on the ground and in the skies above this territory controlled by the Taliban, known as "Talibanistan."
Explorer asks the question: who is winning this war and is this Obamas Vietnam or will he be the first to pacify Afghanistan?"
Sure sounds like Liberal Kalifornicate MSM dribble..
Or maybe it's just the way this chunk reads???
I would not believe everything I saw on television.
Someone may have an agenda.
