It seems that many who joined the taliban did so to get the foreign soldiers out of their country. The Taliban is currently both fighting Isis in Afghanistan, and losing members to Isis due to the US brokered peace between the Afghan government and Taliban. If we stay, then Isis becomes stronger. And, still, many who are not in Afghanistan, have the illusion of control. It is just delusional to think that anyone from outside of Afghanistan can control the people of Afghanistan. Also, with us pouring money into Afghanistan, many of the leadership are getting wealthy from our continued support, and many of these would see their countrymen/women continue to suffer for just a few dollars more in their pockets. We foster corruption which does nothing to improve the situation there. Your thoughts?
