Rockets fired at Western force supplies in Pakistan

Western military officials have played down the attacks, saying they have not affected combat operations but NATO has been looking for alternatives to the main supply route through Pakistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Napoleon once made the observation the "an army travels on its belly", meaning that provisions and supplies must be able to get to solders in a timely manner in order for them to pursue a successful military campaign.

If the militants are successful in shutting down the Khyber Pass to NATO supplies, this will definitely put a huge crimp in the war in Afghanistan.
