US general assumes NATO command in Afghanistan

Dunford faces 'challenges' apparently. Whenever I see that word I know a clusterfuck is lurking not far behind the spin. 
US general assumes NATO command in Afghanistan amidst continuing challenges - China.org.cn: "Gen. Joseph F. Dunford took over the command of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) from his fellow U.S. Marine Corps Gen. John R. Allen at a change-of- command ceremony held here February 10."It is a change of command. It is not a change of war strategy. I think the new NATO commander would obviously stick to the same strategy that his predecessors had in the past," a local military expert, retired General Abdul Ghafar Gardezi, told Xinhua.
Gardezi said that the challenges ahead remain as anti- government elements, notably the Taliban, are still determined to make it difficult for the Afghan government to maintain peace and order after the withdrawal of all foreign forces in 2014."
