Yeah living brutally according to western media. And selling opium too lolz. Every victim of propaganda thinks they r smart but they r not. By the way, who would they sell opium to? Pakistan? If the NATO dislodged them, then how they continue their trade? Im sure its not easy to conceal opium fields, that too with all the drones and tech ( it takes 6 months for the crop, doznt pop up overnight). As i said those are excuses only believed by dumb ex slaves. Statesmanship can go to certain level, did any statesmanship work against nazis? Or the USSR expansion? Its not ur fault, ur taught togive up n appease ur enslaver and call it statesmanship lolz.Brutality is shooting women in town squares and stoning people to death - does that happen in Pakistan? Or is Pakistan acting too 'white' too?? Being civilised is not a western concept.
And all the BS your spouting is outdated, idiotic propaganda that Taliban fed to fanboys 20 years ago. Taliban stopped opium production? It's one of their biggest earners:
Kabul is the frontline in the country’s war on drugs and it is a battle authorities are losing.www.google.com
Because the Taliban’s insurgency is so well financed, the Afghan government must spend enormous sums on war, too. A peace accord would free up funds for basic services, economic development and more.www.google.com
There are several countries the US would like to wage war on but they are clever enough to avoid it. Its called statesmanship - something know it all ideological buffoons cant understand.
If you're going to discuss something come without built-in bias. Just because you hate USA doesn't make anyone who hurts them better people.
You're right and that's the point - they are only good because of lack of opportunity. If they had money, they have already shown the evil they are capable but you will refuse to see it.
Even without money every corruption under the sun is tolerated in Afghanistan as long as it's not in the open.
As a comparison, UK is rich, but it takes in thousands of refugees, gives equal rights to all immigrants. Pays for food, housing, schooling and healthcare of every citizen. Taliban can't even tolerate statues of other religions, let alone people.
Nato could have used chemical weapons to murder everyone in Afghanistan or bomb them indiscriminately. But they didn't because of their rules of engagement. Do you think Taliban believe in any such limits? How can they be good people in your view?
That's not true, they are not fighting for their way of life. Taliban is fighting for power - their way is not the afghan way of life.
The rest of the Afghans are fighting to maintain order against the Taliban, other groups are fighting for ethnic superiority, and some are straight up mercenaries for Iran, India, USA or Pakistan.
