What is the solution there? The Taliban is alive and well and continues to be an annoying, highly volatile, extremist, Islamist, terror group. Do we keep the US troops there perpetually? It has been 17 years. Negotiation is not an option as the non-terror persons in Afghanistan are petrified that if the Taliban gains any power they will reinstitute their dictatorship regime. Taliban is full blow Sharia law following extremists and zealots. They certainly provide proof that the claim that "extremists in Islam represent a tiny minority"....fact is they represent at least 50% of the ideology. Thoughts?
