Oil continues to be the weak link in Afghanistan

The attacks against US forces have been deadly and costly in terms of supplies. While it’s good that the US military is forcing the issue of alternative energy supplies, it still leaves us with the question of why we’re still in Afghanistan. BBC:

Gunmen in Pakistan have torched at least 10 oil tankers carrying fuel for Nato vehicles in Afghanistan in the latest such attack in recent days.

A driver died in the ambush near the south-western city of Quetta.

The number of attacks on tankers has soared in the last week since one of the main routes into Afghanistan was shut by the Pakistani authorities.
