When I read news reports about the Afghanistan war, I constantly see references to "the fighting season." Often, these references are to the impending end of the fighting season. No mention of the fighting playoffs or the World Series of fighting, but that's neither here nor there. I'm just wondering about all the implications for military strategy: I mean, I'm no Colin Powell--or even Colin Farrell--or even Will Farrell--where was I? Oh, yeah: I'm no brilliant military strategist, but, if our enemies at some point just say, "OK, we're done fighting for the year, see you in springtime," wouldn't that be a good time to attack?
