Fighting rages across Afghanistan as U.S. military buildup continues

Attacks by anti-occupation forces spread across Afghanistan over the weekend, with major armed clashes, bombings and other incidents in at least 10 provinces, including eight that are outside the southern region where the U.S. and NATO forces have launched a major military offensive.

Rather than directly confront the greatly increased U.S. ground forces in provinces like Helmand, the Taliban and other resistance forces are employing typical guerrillas tactics, striking at “soft” targets well away from the main combat zone, in many cases in areas where there has been relatively little insurgent activity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, 8 years on, this is what "victory" in Afghanistan looks like?!?

The only way this can look like "victory" if the desired outcome had to do with the complete and chronic destabilization of the country.

If that is not the case, the US and NATO have absolutely no strategy whatsoever in Afghanistan, period, end of discussion.
