US Intel Assessments Can Be Wrong subject logo: MILGAM

Reading the linked story, two concepts occur to me.

If US forces are stalemated, then enemy forces are as well.

Seems I read a year or two ago I the Taliban took one helluva trimming losing the manpower equivalent of two brigades in just a few months; losses in much larger armies would be seen as crippling.

Why do our forces have kill ratios in the factors and yet we are at a stalemate?

Also, the Taliban just won a strategic victory by getting our forces to reduce airstrikes because of "civilian" casualties.

Wish we had that kind of insanity working for our side. Afghanistan would be in the bag by now.

If you have something to add, Fire Away!
