Taliban STILL resurgent in Afghanistan

Just in case you forgot, the Taliban are still running the show in most of Afghanistan. Just thought you'd want to know how well Connecticut native George W. Bush's strategy of abandoning Afghanistant, leaving the job undone, to invade Iraq was going.

Insurgent activity in Afghanistan has risen fourfold this year, and militants now launch more than 600 attacks a month, a rising wave of violence that has resulted in 3,700 deaths in 2006, a bleak new report found.

Afghanistan saw about 130 insurgent attacks a month last year, said the report by the Joint Coordination and Monitoring Board, which consists of representatives from Afghanistan and the international community, including the United Nations.

The new report said insurgents were launching more than 600 attacks a month as of the end of September, up from 300 a month at the end of March this year. The violence has killed more than 3,700 people this year, it said.

Oh, George. You can't even fight terrorism well, can you?
