US warns Taleban of more carpet bombing

With the US-led attacks entering the 26th day, Washington warned the Taleban regime to brace for a fresh round of carpet bombings.

At a Pentagon briefing Deputy Director of Operations of Joint Staff Rear Admiral John Stufflebeem said, "That (carpet bombing) is part of our campaign, it is part of our capability."

"We do use it, we have used it and will use it when we need to." Stufflebeem said, even as B-52s were deployed on the Taleban frontlines against the Northern Alliance opposition.

Meanwhile, Northern Alliance has vowed a fresh assault on the key northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, though an Alliance official in Washington lamented the insufficient US aid in their efforts.

"The status of military aid is still not satisfactory," Haron Amin said.

Amin said, "A few air drops here and there would not get the job done. ... What we are saying is 'Give us the tools and we will finish the job'."

He also said the US attacks must continue through the month of Ramadan also.

The US is under pressure to help the Northern Alliance make significant headway before the severe Afghan winter takes hold around the middle of this month and begins to hamper military movement.
