Not exactly Taliban. In some parts of tribal country, it has great say in several matters that govts should be doing. Mostly a motley collection of tribal chiefs are running government. We don't have hard facts. But going by some expert observation, it appears the central govt's writ doesn't run there.

Yesterday they beheaded 19 people including 2 women just for singing & dancing in south AF! The area which is still under control of Taliban. How gruesome these people can be! Are we still living in the stone age? Democracy is just a joke in Afghanistan limited to Kabul.

1) The story of Afghanistan is really sad indeed.
2) It has all the ingredients for a disaster. It has been ruled by an autocrat before the Soviet invasion, thereafter by the Taliban, at present by the former warlords who call themselves as democrats plus revolutionaries. It has a very envious neighbor in the east that trains and sends all sorts of terrorists into Afghanistan to pull it down and send it back to the Taliban era, the era of darkness.
3) So if you see that the so called democratic Afghanistan is in chaos today, it is courtesy its eastern neighbor Pak.

Yes,they r.In fact, the elected Govt. is surviving because of the support of the alliance forces.The moment they r withdrawn, the whole country will be TALIBANISED.The elected Govt. will seek shelter in some foreign countries.Pakistan is waiting for a chance n is digesting all USA snubs in anticipation of helping the talibans in such an eventuality.The USA continues to tolerate Pakistan nuisance because it knows Pakistan mind.
