As U.S. leaves, fear of civil war leads Afghans to plan "organized resistance against the Taliban"


Kabul — The beginning of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan on May 1 triggered a huge surge in Taliban attacks across the country. CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata reports that the Burka district in Baghlan Province, north of Kabul, was seized by the Taliban just days ago — the latest ground to fall into the insurgents' hands.

Afghan forces were seen retreating to safer fighting positions around Burka this week, and the government said commandos had been sent to the region to back up the regular army.

The district fell just a day after Afghan troops had to call in U.S. airstrikes to halt a major Taliban offensive in the southern province of Helmand.

Isn't this exactly what they were supposedly doing the past 17 years?  And they finally figured it out? :shrug:

They haven't figured anything out, and the country will be under Taliban control before we even leave.  The Press will apply some fig leaf to try to convince us it isn't so.
