ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the new threats before the U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Even after four years after the ouster of the Taliban, the fighting in Afghanistan is growing deadlier. Afghanistan is still a country on the edge. Much of the country is still controlled by the warlords who filled the vacuum created by the Taliban's demise.
