Following months of trying to gauge their unguided artillery rockets to strike at the heart of Hamid Karzai's government in Kabul without success, the cross-eyed Taliban artillery "experts" have finally given up and have decided to take English lessons so at least they can read the CIA instructions manuals on using 80mm unguided artillery rockets effectively.
But still this is a major improvement on the other instruction manuals made available to the Taliban and Al Qaida terrorists which were written in Hebrew, and were lost without explanation on the way to be translated in Pakistan 's North West .
Having given up on landing rockets even within near vicinity of their intended targets, the Taliban militants came up with a better idea than wasting ammunition. They sent a party of militants to attack Kabul on foot armed with city maps and compasses so they do not get lost in the city --the plan worked.
In a frenzied attack, militants high on having found the actual buildings they were meant to strike, killed at least 15 people and wounded 38 others in Kabul . A number of buildings were attacked including the central bank, two shopping centers, a cinema and the only five-star hotel in Kabul; a convincing enough effort for the Western public to cough up yet more taxes on US-led foreign adventurism anyway.
"The militants detonated several bombs inside the buildings and also blew up an ambulance in front of the interior ministry but failed to enter the building after facing fierce resistance from the Afghan police" –presumably so the world is convinced of the dedicated Western efforts to train Afghanistan’s own security forces.
Press TV reported, "Taliban Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid has claimed responsibility for Monday's attacks, saying that 20 militants were sent to various government buildings."
The above being the twenty militants who could read and write well enough to find their objectives; the Taliban have probably given up on the rest as 'missing in action' or as 'missing at the local bazaar' busy selling the Zionist army's old standard-issue compasses!
The Kabul spectacle leaves the gates of Afghanistan open to "Obomba's" thirty-thousand troop surge. Obama is now also armed with ample excuses and room to follow up the latest surge with even more troops to hang around in the region for years.
After the attacks, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said he wanted to "assure the inhabitants of Kabul that the security situation is under control and order has once again been restored."
Not bad for a president under siege in his own palace who can't even get around Afghanistan in a helicopter escorted with fighter jets.
Karzai is a hostage to the US-led whims and demands and his position is not enviable by any stretch of the imagination. The problem is even if all regional countries join in to bring security to Afghanistan, the US-led coalition will find a way of imposing their presence.
The Anglo-American grand plan is designed for elsewhere in the region; Afghanistan serves the Western interests as just a peripheral safety cushion against a potentially vexed future China.
