Just like in Viet Nam
Go into some remote location, fight then pull out. Wait awhile then go back to where you pulled out from. Repeat as often as each new commander requires.
Just months after pulling out of a remote slice of eastern Afghanistan dubbed the “Valley of Death,” U.S. troops are back reinforcing their once-abandoned bases in the area — a hotbed of the insurgency and a dangerous second front in the decade-old war.And the big fool says to push on.
Stationing troops again in the isolated, sparsely populated Pech Valley will boost the coalition’s presence and firepower in the area near the Pakistan border just as the focus of the war shifts back to that region where infiltrating insurgents closest to al-Qaida and other militants hold sway.
