Writing for Reuters, Saeed Ali Achakzai reports on Taliban claims to have suicide bombers and other forces already in place for an anticipated spring offensive: “Following last year’s violence, the worst since the Taliban’s ouster in 2001, this year is regarded as the crunch period both for the Taliban and U.S.-led Western troops.
Speaking to Reuters by satellite phone from an undisclosed location, Mullah Dadullah, the Taliban’s military head, said the Islamic guerrillas had the ability and the weapons to fight foreign troops for a long time.”
