    (This may be real, or more likely, the Taliban are just using one of Islam's tried and true battle techniques, that of requesting a cease fire when they are seriously losing, and using the period of the cease fire to refit, re equip, and rearm preparatory to resuming their assault. Even the legend of the returning Mahdi, the Hidden Imam, on whose Mosque Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is furiously working in preparation for his return, has a version of this technique.
