to fight with the taliban. This is on Drudge. My question. Our intelligence must have known this was happening, why in God's name didn't we bomb and strafe this convoy? Are we starting to screw this war up? Why pass up such a great oppertunity to destroy the enemy? I thought THAT was our objective in this war. Why did we allow this shit to happen? Excuse me, but I thought when you declare war on somebody you are suppose to KILL them.

its possible that by bombing the troops we would have compromised a vital intelligence source....that...coupled with the fact that if we had bombed them and killed them all would be TERRIBLE for the political war going on there (america kills its own allies, says intentional).....would not make it very smart to bomb them....i think if the troops did cross over and we didnt bomb them that would be the right choice from a leadership standpoint...just my opinion

This is not intelligence, this is public knowledge. See: http://[url]sg.news.yahoo.com/011028/1/1lj0c.html[/url] The last I heard, they have not actually entered Afghanistan, and are still inside Pakistan. You have to understand that culturally, there is a lot of posturing that needs to be done first. Their idea is to put pressure on Musharraf's government. Once these guys actually cross into Afghanistan, they are fair game.

The "Target Enviroment" gets "Richer" by the day. I truly hate, to see perfectly good munitions, go to waste, without a high "Body Count".

Hopefully we'll have a bunch of our own informers and intelligence assets mixed in with them. Taliban will probably end up using all the volunteers from Pakistan as their easy up cannon fodder.

Wasn't Basra, Iraq where they were headed?
