Violence on the Rise in Afghanistan, Iraq; the Endless War rolls on
This story comes from THEO at his blog.
A good analysis, take a look here.

    From the intro: Recent events in both Iraq and Afghanistan are showing signs that the US’s ongoing wars are NOT coming to an end as the usual official narrative goes. As Juan Cole has written recently about this upsurge in violence and what it means for the two countries. See his three recent articles Afghanistan: 57 Insurgent Attacks a Day; Taliban Vow Major Campaign; Karzai to Visit Washington, Guerrilla War Continues: 31 Killed in Iraq Attacks; Allawi, Maliki Meet, and Iraq Death Toll from Attacks rises to 119, Biggest since Start of Year.

US pounds Taliban compound in North Waziristan (UPDATED) By Bill Roggio at The Long War Journal. Read it all here.
The US launched a barrage of missiles at a Taliban compound in a known al Qaeda haven in the Taliban stronghold of North Waziristan.

Unmanned Predators or the more deadly Reapers fired 12 missiles at a compound and vehicles parked outside in the Datta Khel region near the Afghan border. The compound was described as a “training camp” run by North Waziristan Taliban leader Hafiz Gul Bahadar…Today’s strike is the third reported inside Pakistan this month, and the second in three days. The US is well on its way to exceeding last year’s strike total in Pakistan. So far this year, the US has carried out 34 strikes in Pakistan; all of the strikes this year have taken place in North Waziristan. In 2009, the US carried out 53 strikes in Pakistan; and in 2008, the US carried out 36 strikes in the country. [For up-to-date charts on the US air campaign in Pakistan, see: “Charting the data for US airstrikes in Pakistan, 2004 – 2010.“] Thanks to The Long War Journal for their up-to-date-drone information.
