    The Taliban are not as well trained as the Vietnamese or as good fighters as them in my opinion, but we have been in Afghanistan for so long the Talibs have adapted to our fighting style, they know they cannot beat back US Troops and hold ground so they need sensational attacks like this to create propoganda victories. This attack was a failure in the sense that they all got killed and didn't kill any US Troops but it looks bad in the press because we have been in country for 10 years and the Talibs can still mount attacks like this.
