Lessee... 7 Taliban killed and 1 Afghan guard killed... at this rate the Taliban are going to lose.

at this rate the Taliban are going to lose

Unfortunately, I think the minute the US pulls out, the Taliban will be right back in charge.

At least one Afghan guard was killed in the attack and 18 other people wounded, but U.S. officials said there were no U.S. casualties with all consulate staff safe and accounted for.

Not that surprising. Modern US embassies and consulates are built like fortresses.

Unfortunately, I think the minute the US pulls out, the Taliban will be right back in charge.

People tend to forget the thousands of 'non-combat' troops that can still run missions and shoot back and do basically everything a combat troop can, that will still be there until the Afghan government asks them to leave. Not to mention the air strike capabilities and drones. Considering the Afghan government likes living a lot more than they dislike the US, I'd say those troops are going to be there for a while.
