from Afghan Journal:
U.S.-led NATO and Afghan forces are in the third day of their offensive to establish control over the town of Marjah and surrounding areas in southern Afghanistan.
The soldiers were making steady progress, facing little resistance from the Taliban in many parts of Marjah, the military said, while picking their way through a terrain littered with roadside bombs.
Several experts in the run-up to Operation Moshtarak, flagged weeks in advance, have questioned both its military and political logic.
