Taliban Attack

Afghanistan continues its deterioration–with another extremely (and sadly successful) attack by the Taliban.  Using more Global Guerrilla tactics…this time swarming and suicide bombings:

In unusually large and well coordinated operations in eastern Afghanistan Monday, Taliban fighters killed 10 French soldiers and at least six suicide bombers attacked a base of NATO alliance troops, NATO and Afghan officials said Tuesday.

The fighting with the French began late Monday afternoon when dozens of insurgents ambushed a French-led patrol near the town of Sarobi about 40 miles east of Kabul, according to NATO officials. Shortly after the ambush, a quick reaction force of NATO and Afghan soldiers and air support was sent to reinforce the French patrol.
