The Other Last Throes

The Pentagon publicly acknowledges that the war in Afghanistan is far from over...
Their tactics have changed, but a US military spokesman says rebels are still a threat in Afghanistan. Four years after US-led forces drove the hard-line Taliban from power, the spokesman says militants are no longer able to carry out large-scale attacks. But Colonel James Yonts says small pockets of rebels are resorting to roadside bombs and attacks on police. He calls it a "hit-and-run approach." Yonts also says rebels are recruiting younger fighters. Some are being paid, others are threatened. Insurgents also are relying on militants from other countries who are coming to Afghanistan. These new fighters are very young and inexperienced and there is no strong leader to bring them together. More than 12-hundred people have been killed in the last six months, many of them rebels.
