Just heard that on TV...

If it wasn't so tragic, that's the funniest way to put it!

Like a sports season coming in spring... WTF?

Really, the Military should know better.

Yesterday I watched an episode of "The Vice Guide to Travel" on Netflix and they went to a gun market where Middle Eastern terrorists build all sorts of guns by hand. It was scary, but intriguing at the same time. They may be crazy extremists, but they sure are inventive.

Agreed, the most dangerous wackos are them smart ones...

But the Military calling it the "Taliban Spring Offensive" just sounds stoopid... Smile

You know why don't act naive.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

It's also sometimes referred to as the Fighting Season.

Apparently the weather is too forbidding to allow fighting the rest of the year in that Allah forsaken place.

What a shame the gorgeous landscape of blooming opium poppies is desecrated by bloodshedding.

Just call it war.

Why sugar coat war?

It may sound stupid, but that's precisely what it is- a spring offensive.

The Taliban Spring Sale is really something.

Instead of the dull black hijabs of winter you can buy them in all the colorful riotous shades of black.

There is a wargame convention in the midwest called "Spring Offensive". I always thought it referred to the odor of hundreds of gamers after a weekend of non-stop gaming...

But it's a common enough military term.
