Dutch offensive in Uruzgan

There's a combination of words that is rather unexpected, certainly after the stinging indictment of Dutch politics by the French: Dutch on the offensive (NL) against the Taliban in Uruzgan.

Seems that NATO is planning to seriously damage the Taliban capability before the winter forces an extended lull in hostilities. The Dutch operation is called Spin Gahr (yeah, I don't know either). The Van Der Galiƫn Gazette has details in EN.

Godspeed to the people of the Dutch contingent of ISAF. They are capable of kicking some serious behind, if Dutch politicians lets them.
