U.S. commander: Spring to bring new tactics by Taliban

A recent lull in Taliban resistance will not last, says a top commander who adds that come spring, the insurgents will be back on the offensive in Afghanistan, perhaps with assassination teams.

Despite the dismal prediction by the number-two American commander in Afghanistan, Lt. Gen. David Rodriguez painted a positive picture of American and international war efforts there, but warned the Taliban will be back on the offensive when spring arrives.

Winter in Afghanistan is so brutal, the Taliban tend to hunker down and refit so they can launch offensives in the spring.

Rodriguez expects the Taliban, which was hit hard by an increase in coalition attacks in 2010, to try new tactics this spring in an effort to rollback coalition military gains.

"Yes, assassination hit teams, IEDs (improvised explosive devices, or roadside bombs), indirect things. They will not be as direct in their confrontations as they were last year, I believe," Rodriguez told journalists at a press conference Tuesday.

The general expects Taliban hit teams to target civilian leaders who have taken over in areas that the Taliban used to control before coalition offensive operations.

But it's not just those who oppose the Taliban that are being killed.

"They're killing their own," Rodriguez said. "You've got to understand that, in that insurgency, there's a hierarchy of the most committed to the least committed. And they have been going after the people who were part of their efforts before, but who are on the lower scale, who are trying to turn over and support their government."

The Taliban's tactic of turning on their own comes after coalition success in places like Kabul, the capital.

"There were very few spectacular attacks in 2010. In fact, we went almost seven months without one, which is the longest on record in the last several years," Rodriguez said of Kabul.

The troops, including Afghan National Army forces, are doing a much better job of finding caches of weapons that the Taliban relied on, Rodriguez observed. In In the last 12 weeks, troops found and destroyed 1,250 caches, in the same period a year ago they found only 163 caches.

Those gains have come at a cost, as 2010 was the deadliest year of the war so far for U.S. troops. Nearly 500 troops were killed; another 25 troops were killed in January of this year.

As for the July 2011 deadline to start withdrawing U.S. forces from Afghanistan, Rodriguez hinted that Herat, in the west, might be one place to start. Herat, he said is "largely free from violent incidents and ready to transition to Afghan lead very soon."

Rodriguez also addressed the issue of militants hiding in Pakistani safe haven. He said that it would help if Pakistan could go after those insurgents in North Waziristan, but even if that doesn't happen, it doesn't mean "mission failure" of the U.S. effort in Afghanistan.

In spite of what he sees as many successes against the insurgents, Rodriguez said "the Taliban's not on the ropes yet."

    Going to church is worst than going to jail if you add up all the crimes commited by prisioners in all the jails of the world it wouldnt add up to a single case of molestation by one priest. Remember what happens in jail to any person that molests children(they kill him) so you can know from this that prisioners have more moral values than priests or church followers what a shame

      Saddam does the Koran tell you to take the law upon yourself and kill those who sin against others? God says in His Holy Bible that He inspired the wise men, the prophets and the scribes to write, that vengeance is His and He clearly states in His commandments "thou shall not kill"! But I guess because of your divinity all you Islamic extremist get a pass on that one huh? I am not defending the sins of the priesthood, the Vatican must take up the matter and heal the Catholic Church and for that matter I am not Catholic anyway and I do not believe that any one church is better than another as long as they worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and use their offerings not only to pay for their humble salaries and maintaining the church but use the rest of the offerings for the sick, poor and elderly!

    Spring? Around here, spring has already sprung. And in the rest of the world I would think right about now would be the most opportune time for the Taliban to Spring Forward instead of Fall Back on the daylight savings time thing. It would be a propaganda coup if the Taliban mustered it up to strike now instead of waiting. It would work so well with all that Egyptian and other stuff going on right now. Don't let the possibility be a surprise......

        Dan from Chicago....thank you for your reply. what confuse me is ...if Jesus was God then to whom he was talking ......Father.....forgive them...then another time ...I am doing all these miracles through him.....I would tell if my Father has not many rooms their in heaven... Then why you were worried searching for me ..that I was in my Fathers house 9when Mary and Joseph were searching for him) See.......He always mentioned about another mighty power within him. Same God is still there so lonely for us to return to him .......Read Matthew Chapter 24 brother. This is the end of this world. Jesus was our last chance.

        Dindy, my mother was a Sunday school teacher and has shown me through the way she lived how people should behave towards one another. I could never be as loving and caring as she, but I do try and I have read three different versions of the Holy Bible, I like the NIV the best, but I've got one in my desk at my computer that i read most every day and as Jesus spoke of the signs of the end times and how they are like the labor pains of a woman we surely are living in those times! And we Christians must stand true to our faith, but as I told you if those who are attacking us have no remorse and continue to kill innocent lives in the name of their god Allah we cannot forgive them and allow them to continue in their murderous campaign although Jesus said love your enemies we can love the Muslim people,but as for these Islamic extremists I do believe that they are the anti-Christ and I will defend my Lord and Savior's namesake no matter what they want to make Him out to be!

        why changing God"s nature to something else. The passion of God is completely different than what Bin did . God does died not bless to kill God"s children. It was a demonic attack just like what happen in Sri lanka to central bank building. 1973 got wounded and 973 died and it had only 32 stories only. It was 272 stories in twin towers in WTC. Actually two towers has more stories. So this incident is one of their usual thing as terrorists. Different names but talk same language. This pain is not only for Americans we too have gone through including Pakistan, India and many other places too. Devil worshiping was there from the beginning of this world. This battle against God"s children was there. No credit to anyone . Unless people who are like children cant see the humanity will cheer on some one else death or pain.

      Dan...from Chicago..........brother it is difficult to do what Jesus did 🙂 when forgive people try to take ride on us sometimes. Here it is like that. Since I became Christian and stop associating with gentiles unless it is to tell the good news I was attacked. I did forgive through the divinity of God. It was not me actually . Because I cant be that good unless god was with me. So there are times we have to defend too when one never learn something once we forgive again and again. Jesus way is truly difficult. Former President George Bush has said it too. Actually God must be lonely for all of us now because no of us cant be like JESUS.

        Yes we can Dindy, Jesus never forgave those who did not come to Him for forgiveness, we do not just forgive without the perpetrator coming to us to be forgiven and as you know even the people thought if they touched Jesus they would be forgiven, they always followed Him, but not those who did not believe. Jesus did say though that we should make amends with our adversary's, but if they too are not willing to make that step forward there is not much we can do. WE should always forgive those who are remorseful and ask for forgiveness, BUT NOT UNTIL THEN BECAUSE JESUS WONT ALSO!

    1. This is 9th year of occupation, and for 50/100 Al-Qaida activists( revealed by Leon Paneta CIA chief) in Afghanistan USA has killed hundreds of their own soldiers, in thousands, in Afghanistan and Pakistan, destroying whole social infrastructure, paving way for further anarchy and civil wars. No doubt this spring may prove more deadly as being predicted by the commander on the front. Billions of dollars which could have been spent on the welfare of Americans or other poor nations but contrary to this its use in deaths and destruction in Afghanistan/Pakistan, has faced whole world with another world war. All this in this new millennium, in this internet age, by a super power and self proclaimed, most advanced, most civilized nation, just simply adding to the disappointment of every peace loving.

US has the problem with Alqada and are these Taliban still helping Osama ? why no body knows at least which country he is exactly in ? Very strange. If he is in Pakistan... ,why a huge force like Pakistan Army and police cant find him.? Nine years is a long time......and why someone can be so sure that they can pull the troops back in 2014 ? A government must be responsible for what their citizens do in other countries and in their own. They have neglect their responsibility in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Today it was on TV here.

But with this current wimp in the White House, you don't have to worry about us winning any conflict, as he said, "I'm not comfortable with the idea of victory in this war." Plus, the fool already set a timetable to leave, so the enemy knows they just have to wait. That's what a bozo demlib always has done, and this fool is more useless than most.
