Moshtarak is on

After the seemingly endless build-up the big NATO-Afghan offensive in southern Helmand Operation Moshtarak has finally begun. Early results are said to be promising with no allied casualties but it is said a lot of the Taleban leadership has already fled and Taleban foreign fighters were not there. So all that public build up probably worked. Early days yet of course. Moshtarak is the biggest allied offensive since the start of the war in Afghanistan back in 2001.
