OPERATION JUST REVENGE
Global War on Terrorism, Battle for Marjah
MARJAH, Afghanistan: A month after losing control of its southern base in Marjah, the Taliban has begun to fight back, launching a campaign of assassination and intimidation to frighten people from supporting the U.S. and its NATO allies.
At least one apparent government sympathizer has been beheaded. There are rumors that others have been killed. Afghans in the town that U.S., Afghan and NATO troops captured in a three-week assault that began Feb. 13 awake to letters posted on their doors warning against helping the troops. Winning public support in this former Taliban stronghold in Helmand province 360 miles southwest of Kabul is considered essential to preventing insurgents from returning.
The Marjah operation will serve as a model for campaigns elsewhere, including one expected by summer to secure villages around Kandahar, the Taliban's spiritual birthplace and the largest city in the south.
Military commanders believe the Taliban campaign is achieving some success because of questions raised at town meetings: Do the U.S. forces want to shut down the mosques and ban prayer? Will they use lookout posts on their bases to ogle women? Are they going to take farmers' land away? There are no firm figures on how many Taliban fighters are left in Marjah. Marine, Army, Navy Special Forces and NATO military officials say they believe most of those still here are from the area and the foreign fighters have fled.
Can U.S. and NATO forces put a strangle hold on Taliban insurgents…This may overestimate the restraint of the Taliban.
Marjah's administrative chief, Abdula Azahir, said he and his advisers have decided they must show they have the upper hand in town by the end of the month.
But he acknowledged that the task is difficult. Homemade bombs still appear every night on roads traveled by the military. Gunfire can be heard many evenings in the center of town. Earlier this week, a Marine foot patrol tripped a bomb planted near the district center, seriously wounding several of them.
