Comments on: From afar, G8 seeks a handle on Afghanistan Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:37:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: Anubis Sun, 28 Jun 2009 15:48:28 +0000 To suggest the Taliban was overthrown eight years ago is contradictory.

Is it possible our own actions make this war more of a quagmire than the lack of troops or the impossible terrain? How many more Afghans and Pakistanis can we continue to make homeless and not encourage recruitment for the Taliban?
