Wary Afghans Worry U.S. is Repeating History
I personally have mixed feelings.
On the one hand, I think they should sort out their problems themselves. Obviously the Taleban are quite popular among a sizable proportion of the population. Many Afghan obviously think that women are second class citizens, and all the other stuff the Taleban believes in. If they (the Afghan) want this system, then let them have it. And if the women don't like it, let them educate their sons!
On the other hand, I feel sorry for the Afghan, specially the women. Surely most Afghan just want to live peaceful lives, and want neither the Americans nor the Taleban. If the Americans leave, the Taleban will likely return.
Overall, isn't the problem in Pakistan? As long as Pakistan indoctrinates young Muslims in their Madrasas, there is nothing anybody can do in Afghanistan. There is a constant supply of indoctrinated youth, and as Ho Chi Min said "You can kill ten of my men for every one I kill of yours, but even at those odds, you will lose and I will win".
