|After almost 3 weeks
of military action of the USA over Afghanistan and anthrax tainted mail
in the homeland, the American people might be more angry than scared.
Previous to 9-11, the Taliban had control
over the many years battered country of Afghanistan, with a bloody grip.
We in the United States knew somewhat about
the Taliban fanatic "fundamentalist", oppressive to women, Islamic regime.

come with tanks and attack helicopters, like the Soviets came? They would
deal with those. They did not learn from the beating Iraq was dealt after
it had not been willing to leave Kuwait.
Any serious military operation after the
Vietnam debacle has been custom designed, flexible and successful; except
