AUSTIN BAY AND REUTERS LOOK AT NATO IN AFGHANISTAN:

Since early last summer, the Taliban and its remaining Al Qaeda allies have been testing the NATO force. The Taliban wanted to inflict at least one casualty-heavy defeat on a NATO ally, and then magnify that in the media. The Talibs goal: a “Spanish-style” withdrawal from Afghanistan by a NATO nation.

The Taliban has failed –and failed miserably.

Good.
