Taliban attack US bases, WHY?
Is this a Paradigm change? NO
Taliban's assaults on symbols of U.S. power imply it strikes at will.While thats the message the popular press is sending its in error.
Its a symptom of younger Taliban punks taking control.
Most of the new leaders are in their 20's now, when this started they were in their early teens.
And most idolized the Mujahideen of the Russian period.But they have grown up with the lies and mis-information about that era.
Many think the Mujahideen brought down the Russian empire,
and take full responsibility for the defeat of the Russians.
Forget Charlie Wilson.
They have also been raised on a steady diet of Taliban propaganda with
grossly inflated US casualties reports. And they believe their own propaganda.
Now these young punks in their early 20's are platoon leaders and want
to emulate their heroes. And want to seek head to head fights with
US forces, their propaganda has deceived them into thinking they
can be raised to hero status by racking up big body counts among the
US forces, just as their propaganda mentions.
And the Taliban are hard put to explain the propaganda is lies,
and the Taliban get the shit kicked out of them every time they
attack US bases.
So the Taliban leadership let the attacks continue till the Taliban
punks get their noses bloodied enough to give up the nonsense.
And the Taliban are getting desperate, there are two huge operations
going against the Taliban's stealth bases on both sides of the Durand
line. One by the US in Helmand and just across the border to the EAST
in Warzistan, Paki . The two major bases of the Taliban West, Afghan and
the Taliban East, Pakistan.
These attacks are acts of desperation and inexperienced leaders.
The new young Taliban leadership have been deceived on several levels.
The first and biggest deception is that some how they are fighting for Islam
but they have been tricked into fighting for a perverted Islamic cult al Qaeda,
and the Taliban is helping to try and turn Islam from a religion of peace into
a religion of war.
The other big lie is that US is in a war against Islam, a subjugation of the Afpak
Which is easily exposed as false:

And the final deception is the Taliban are winning the war.
The young Taliban punks believe the Taliban propaganda
and are paying for the deception with their lives, but the younger
generations isn't taking the cowards way out and are forgoing suicide
bombing, instead choosing to fight man to man.
The Taliban's Secret Wounded. IATT
The net result will be burning through the Talibans best and
youngest warriors based on these deceptions.
