PHOTO: EAST NEWS/AVANTIS Bell Helicopters over Afghanistan. After a sweeping victory in northern Afghanistan, the United States and its Afghan allies are now positioned to wage a more targeted campaign to root out Taliban leaders and Osama bin Laden in the south. With the Taliban now confined to the south, the U.S. warplanes can concentrate more firepower on a smaller area. And with the Taliban chased out of most cities, the American planes will presumably be carrying out fewer missions over urban areas. Finding Taliban targets in the rugged mountains and caves will remain a challenge, and a fear for America. If the airstrikes doesn't reach talibans and Osama Bin Laden the army will have to send troops between the mountains. A hard ground for americans, but well known by Talibans and Bin Laden's troops.It is the fearest part of the american operation because it recalls Vietnam. Not in the ideological view, but in some points.
