BBC News - Pakistan is helping Afghan Taliban, says Nato report The bottom part of the article will not make good reading to those who've served/currently serving in Afhgan but at the sametime won't come as a shock or a surprise..... Just in case you can't be arrsed to read the article the bottom portion reads like this:- The report has evidence that the Taliban are purposely hastening Nato's withdrawal by deliberately reducing their attacks in some areas and then initiating a comprehensive hearts-and-minds campaign. It says that in areas where Isaf has withdrawn, Taliban influence has increased, often with little or no resistance from government security forces. And in many cases, with the active help of the Afghan police and army. When foreign soldiers leave, Afghan security forces are expected to take control. However according to the report, rifles, pistols and heavy weapons have been sold by Afghan security forces in bazaars in Pakistan.
