- Not Afghanistan
Casualties are neither indicative of success or failure, just dead people.Were they able to keep their areas of responsibility secured? Looks like they suffered some casualties.
I can't speak to their overall battlespace, but considering I watched Afghans walk around FOB Ghazni, unescorted, taking pictures with cellphones, and performing a pace count?* And Ghazni was their brigade HQ? Or how they allowed a convoy to drive over a known IED? I don't have a lot of faith in their performance elsehwere. I have a list of behavior that would shock members of this forum and no, I'm not sharing.
* - Yes, it was reported and yes, it was ignored. KBR threatened to walk off the job. Their management told them if they did their next decision would be "chicken or pasta." Their turnover at that FOB was horrendous.
