US and Afghan forces face tough resistance as they launch new raids against Taliban.

    US and Afghan soldiers have launched a series of raids against the Taliban in the Arghandab Valley in southeastern Afghanistan.

    With the American soldiers being ill-prepared for the kind of war the Taliban is fighting, attempts to defeat the enemy have not yet been successful.
