The revolution will be pre-announced

So people, it's that time of year again. You know, time for the Taliban spring offensive!

In case you had forgotten to mark your calendars or buy tickets, the group officially announced that the offensive will begin on May 12th!

Now personally I find the Taliban offensive 24/7/365, but you gotta admire their confidence, no?

Hey infidels: we are coming for you next Monday and we don't care if you know it or not!

Funniest part of the article though is this:

The Afghan government and Nato have not yet responded to the Taliban’s announcement.

What are they supposed to say? Thanks for the warning numbnutz? Don't bother, we give up? I know you are but what am I?


I love the phrase, Taliban spring offensive. Like rush week or fashion week. Also a good name for an indie band.

This reminds me of the headlines from earlier in the week about Iran stating that they would attack our ships in the Persian Gulf if war broke out between us. Example here: http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/05/06/us-ships-are-target-in-case-war-iran-admiral-says/

This was "everywhere", not just Fox. Very much a "no shit, Sherlock" headline.

But they're going to use "complex military techniques". Perhaps they'll attack on 5/11 or 5/13. Then who will have the last laugh?
