When dealing with people like the Taliban, we need to send powerful messages.
I invite you guys to see the documentary "Restrepo".
I like the part where the soldiers decided to move out and to fortify a position in the area where most the attacks come from...
Doing this kind of actions, they send a powerful message to their enemies... And the message isnt the old "my guns are bigger than yours." who also says "I'm a coward, and I wont fight you if I dont find a confortable and safe environment."
