"Afghan forces plan to be on the offensive in the coming year, according to a Resolute Support press release. The NATO mission said it intends to leverage the winter months to disrupt Taliban sources of revenue and enhance air power in preparation for the insurgents' spring offensive with help from the Afghan forces.

I served with the 173rd AB, in 2009.

Don't believe what the MSM tell you. We crossed into Pakistan more then once, and we killed Taliban people on Pakistan soil.

The Army is still doing this. The days of these cowards taking shots at us and then running for the hills in Pakistan are over.
