The place is going back to feudalism.

Actually, feudalism would be an improvement over the Taliban.


the locals don't agree. The bloodshed was a lot more severe before the Taliban took over actually. I don't like the Taliban either, but we should at least get facts straight. they were brutal, but they did bring a lot more order than previous regimes.

Anyway, this is all irrelevant, because the US did not go to war over the Taliban's treatment of women, or any noble moral cause ... the US turned a blind eye, and even GAVE the Taliban millions of dollars when they were doing that.

The Taliban even offered to hand over Osama Bin Laden. The US refused, and now Bin Laaden is still free. Seems the smart thing to do would be to get the guy you are after, not cause pointless destruction to a bunch of people who weren't involved.
