Rockets glare o'er Kabul
Rockets, the BBC reports, within a mile of the US embassy in Kabul. Incidents of attacks against NATO, and especially beefed up American troops' strength, are on the increase So are the casualities,mostly from IED's. The Taliban are upping the ante They have called for a boycott of the forthcoming elections, and are therefore increasing in number and sophisticated materiel; they're are aiming to disrupt any strategem to weaken or defeat them militarily or outwit them politically. Guam Diary won't rule out that the Taliban will try a do or die offensive against Kabul in the hours leading up to national elections. They will fail where the Vietnamese succeed during the 1968 Tet offensive.
