Capture may be turning point in Taliban fight

What is odd, is this surge if you will for the Taliban and at the same time throwing out the ominious highly likely attack in 3-6 months.

Now I know, had Bush said the second part there would be crying about spreading fear.

But. I think it's odd the synching of the two.

Its not really a turning point, no more than Killing Yamamoto was a turning point of World War II.

The best thing we have going for us is when the other side does things like hold hostages in order to keep us from attacking a certain house or building.

The thing that hurts us is that both the Taliban and the locals feel that we will not stick around for the long haul and that if we leave in a year or two.

Nine Taliban militants linked to al-Qaida were nabbed in three raids late Wednesday and early Thursday near the port city of Karachi, Pakistani intelligence officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they weren't supposed to release the information.

The Taliban recruit and train faster than we can capture them, so while this is all good news, in the grand scheme of things it doesn't mean much. You can't change a country that doesn't want to be changed.
