Afghanistan - Another Iraqi Quagmire?

Yesterday I blogged on the American problem in Afghanistan because of the Pakistani collaboration with the Talibans. The situation is becoming bad for the US there.

Already 66 American soldiers have been killed in 2005. This figure represents more than 1/3 of the total killed since the invasion, and that big jump is really looking disastrous. The escalation in casualties in Afghanistan coupled with those in Iraq are troubling the American politicians and military.

We may expect the Afghan insurgents to be even more active in the coming months as the country prepares for the pending elections. One wonders how the relationship between Pakistan and the USA will fare out as the US military have been pissed off with the Pakis for playing the double headed snake in their relationship with the Talibans.
