ABSTRACT
Discusses the military superiority of the United States compared to that of the Taliban in Afghanistan. Importance of how skillfully the U.S. targets any attacks, what forces it uses, and how well it anticipates the complex military and political repercussions of U.S. strikes on Afghanistan; Idea that risks lie more in the shifting dynamics of popular support for the Taliban than in weaponry or the terrain; View that the U.S. should focus air strikes on the Taliban while averting civilian casualties.
