All Service Provider

This is rich.

KABUL, Afghanistan -- Taliban attacks on telecom towers have prompted cell phone companies to shut down service across southern Afghanistan at night, angering a quarter million customers who have no other telephones.

Even some Taliban fighters now regret the disruptions and are demanding that service be restored by the companies (Taliban Attack Afghan Cell Towers.)

Ranger wonders why a COIN strategy of placing an insurgency surcharge on all cell phones hasn't been considered. It could help defray the costs of the war from the beleaguered U.S. taxpayer. War time minutes would cost a lot more than peace time minutes. That'd give those old boys something to chew on.

All that needs to be figured are the rates. How could anybody be so callous as to run a war that denies anybody their free nighttime minutes?
