Resurgent Taliban closing in on Kabul

"b.s. alert!" screams RimJob's fretards.

The conflict in Afghanistan has reached "crisis proportions," with the resurgent Taliban present in more than half the country and closing in on Kabul, a report said on Wednesday. If NATO, the lead force operating in Afghanistan, is to have any impact against the insurgency, troop numbers will have to be doubled to at least 80,000, the report said.
We've got th' enemy on the run!! They can run but they can't hide!
"The Taliban has shown itself to be a truly resurgent force," the Senlis Council, an independent think-tank with a permanent presence in Afghanistan, wrote in a study entitled "Stumbling into Chaos: Afghanistan on the brink."
Yeah, they sound like quite the shady outfit. Why should we believe them?
