    May be the frustration of loss of elite leaders, ten years of pounding from all sides had psychological effect on them and they are acting Suicidal.....so that may be more people will join them because of their heroism and they will end their life fulfilling a goal.:smokin:

    You have to understand the mindset of the Afghans. Even the anti-Taliban Afghans hate NATO. It's unfortunate, but that is the case.

    Yeah, you may be correct. They never liked foreigners except from those countries with which they have historical ties. That's why US is asking India to play a major role in Aghanistan as its relations with Pakistan has deteriorated. Afghanis have soft corner for Indians. But they are more close to pakistanis. Lets see how things pan out....

    All killed in 30 minutes - my advise to them 'do not carry out this rare frontal attack next time'

    How could they attack a checkpoint hours later, If they were all killed in 30 minutes?

    US is asking india to take major role not because Afghans have soft corner for you but because US is tired and broke, Afghans have soft corners with Polish people too because they are not invading them, once you take the guns and start walking in streets then it changes everything. beside I have another theory for soft corner too, historically Afghans will do their usual loot mar in India and on the way back take thousands of young boys with them some of those unfortunate boys survived the ordeal and became part of Afghan society, they naturally have soft heart for Indians.

    After 10 years of war the people are satisfied with the "success" that they killed a few Taliban in just 30 minutes. Fine fine. :rolleyes:
