#2. Taliban Offensive
Sept. 29: A Taliban suicide bomber kills 35 Afghan troops and two civilians in the year's worst suicide bombing in Kabul. More than 5,000 Afghans have been killed in a wave of bombings and guerrilla clashes in the Taliban's offensive to drive foreign troops out of Afghanistan. Despite the presence of 40,000 NATO troops, by the fall of 2007 the Taliban controlled vast swathes of Afghan territory, and are expected to renew their offensive in the spring.
