"The identification process meets many difficulties because the remains have been buried for about 30 to 40 years, which lowers the quality of the DNA" Loi said
...In the process the Taliban are inflicting serious casualties on Afghan government forces, though (as the NYT report says) "[their] advance has gone unreported because most American forces have left the field and officials in Kabul have largely refused to talk about it”. There was a surge in deaths among police and army personnel in 2013, eventually averaging more than a hundred a month. Since then, it has become much more difficult to establish secure casualty figures, because the defence and interior ministries have simply stopped publishing them. United Nations statistics on the matter suggest a 24% rise in civilian casualties for the first six months of 2014 compared with a year ago. Furthermore, the highest number of casualties came from fighting between Taliban and government forces rather than from roadside bombs. There is little doubt that the Taliban and other networks are now gaining in power in Afghanistan. At the same time, there is evidence that they will not push this too far in what is colloquially termed the “fighting season”, for fear of provoking the Pentagon to delay or slow the withdrawal. Instead, they will bide their time until 2015. If the anticipated escalation in armed activities does then happen, the remaining US troops are likely to concentrate on the use of special forces and armed-drones to maintain a semblance of control and help ensure the survival of whatever Afghan government is finally formed. Neither task will be easy and the former is likely to be protracted, stretching - like the conflict since late 2001 - over years not months. Indeed, the events of 2014 show that US involvement in Afghanistan is nowhere near finished and may yet last many more years. Islamist paramilitary groups everywhere will take great satisfaction from that. Indeed, in the longer term Afghanistan's paramilitary curve may well become as significant as the ISIL takeover of parts of Syria and Iraq, with effects on the region comparable to events there and over Gaza. Even as the latter conflicts dominate the news agenda, Afghanistan's own remains acute. Sideboxes"
