    I saw this article listed on Yahoo!'s main page, titled "Could sticks and knives drive Taliban out of Afghanistan?":

    To fight Taliban, US eyes Afghan tribes

    Once again I amazed at how useful these "primitive" weapons continue to be in so many parts of the world!

    In a word "No".

    Repeating firearms are readily available. They rule the battlefield even when the battlefield is the village. Every grown man and most boys has one. And it's not like people don't have knives. Afghanistan is the land of the curved knife hillbilly. Anyone who wants one already has one and knows how to use it.

    You're suffering from dreams of glory here.
