"fighting to restore strict Islamic law"

Islamic "law" should not have any jurisdiction outside of the mosques.

"U.S. President Donald Trump has announced a pullout of American troops from Syria, a decision that prompted the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis, and there have been reports that he is considering a partial pullout from Afghanistan."

Good. I hope all of them are out of Afghanistan soon.

The last time the Taliban imposed their version of strict Islamic law, it was a humanitarian disaster. Do they care?

I'm not sure the 21st century concept of a 'humanitarian disaster' exists in a 7th century mindset.

Just give it some time, it's only been 17 years and a trillion dollars.

The Taliban only want one thing. Islamic califate. Doesn't matter that it's utter BS, they just want to keep power over a hell-hole of their own making. There is no negotiating with people like this except to end them and put them out of our misery.

Yup, every last one of the Taliban just needs to be put down. Their entire regime has got to be wiped off the planet and anyone responsible for radicalizing / talibanizing people taken with them. One of the most disgusting groups of people to exist in modern times. Never forget what they were doing to their own people in the 90's - the mass executions of innocent children and women in soccer stadiums, skinning people alive. Disgusting group of animals.
