US creating hostile terrain for Taliban

Daily Mail:

Bombs: B-52s are being used to bomb mountain passes, cover and other areas of Afghanistan to force insurgents to use routes that expose them to observation and potential attack
The US is using bombs to transform the very terrain of Afghanistan in an effort to deny enemies control of the battlefield. Many methods have been used but B-52s remain the favorite.
 I recall the B-52 Arc Light strikes in Vietnam.  They usually happened in the evening and lit up the ground.  The NVA troops who were not killed in teh strikes felt teh concussion throwing them into the air.  These strikes are reshaping the terrain to make it harder for the Taliban to move to contact from their lairs.
