#3 Most of the IED's and complex attacks in Afghanistan occur in, or within 5-7km of a village or urban area. It's basically a globally financed, regionally planned, and locally initiated warfare dynamic. I suspect the French may go about this one a bit differently that ISAF.

#4 Most of the IED's and complex attacks in Afghanistan occur in, or within 5-7km of a village or urban area.

Burn the place down, and that's the end of the attacks. Ultimately, Sherman's policy in Atlanta needs to be repeated over and over as part of a guerrilla pacification campaign.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
