ABSTRACT
This article discusses the U.S. and NATO military situation in Afghanistan. Suicide bombers are striking in the capital of Kabul, while once routed Taliban fighters have regrouped to take on NATO troops--mostly British and Canadian soldiers--in the Pashtun "tribal belt" villages. NATO has expanded its security responsibility throughout Afghanistan. The administration of U.S. President George W. Bush is likely to be seeking significant increases in U.S. funding for the Afghan Army, police, and reconstruction efforts.
