News Item - Major Battle Set for Afghanistan

The Guardian (UK) is reporting that United States, United Kingdom and Afghani troops are preparing for a final assault on the Taliban-held city of Musa Qala.

The battle will be the first test for the NATO-trained Afghan Army. Musa Qala is in the troubled Helmand province. The Taliban controls much of Helmand, which is also the center of Afghanistan's opium production.
