    The taliban were never defeated

    The Independent reminds us of "liberated Afghanistan", and the continuing presence of the Taliban:

    Over the past year, Helmand has emerged as one of the main centres of the Taliban insurgency. Although it is only now attracting the attention of the outside world, the Taliban insurgency has been raging in Helmand ever since the original victory of US-led forces in Afghanistan in 2001. As early as 2002, the insurgents tried to assassinate the Afghan intelligence chief in the province. In March 2003, two US special forces soldiers were ambushed and killed by the Taliban in the province.

    Of course, our leaders attempted to tell us that the battle had been fought and won, but if that were the case, they wouldn't be sending more troops to Afghanistan now, would they?
