The Taliban are playing a waiting game, hopefully they will tire of waiting for us to let our guard down.
I wouldn't hold your breath, if they've learnt anything from the centuries foreigners have been invading Afghanistan it's that sooner or later they'll leave. There's nothing there to justify occupying it, and however much some of the locals may agree with the current occupiers they too know they'll be on their own soon.

I also liked the quote from the Lt Col that described them as a "network of networks". At least someone's taking network-centric warfare seriously, although I might have hoped that we'd have been the ones implementing it.
