ABSTRACT
The article reports on terrorist activities in Afghanistan. While the U.S. and its allies have dithered for months over whether to deploy more troops outside Kabul, Afghanistan, countless warlords in the country have established a reign of terror in small towns and rural areas. At the same time, a recrudescent Taliban, aided by its al-Qaeda allies, has stepped up attacks on U.S. troops and reconstruction efforts in southern and eastern regions of the country, assassinating 13 aid workers since May 2003.
