This is very true. I am freinds with Afghani's who had to flee the country, and freinds with Afghani's who never left. ALL of the one's I spoke to were so sick and tired of living under threat of death.. and ALL of them I know wanted the US there to get rid of the Taliban.
Its all that I know... I know some don't want the US there anymore because the taliban is still there and they are getting war weary, but no one but the taliban and their sympathisers want the taliban in power.
Life under them was a living hell.
That's the conundrum though! It is the Taliban that is burning down the poppy fields! It is the US troops that our protecting them!
So is there a "war on drugs"? Perhaps those who hate the Taliban are as confused as am I?
Afghanistan's deputy prime minister, Haji Abdul Kabir, told reporters that the Taliban would require evidence that Bin Laden was behind the September 11 terrorist attacks in the US.
"If the Taliban is given evidence that Osama bin Laden is involved" and the bombing campaign stopped, "we would be ready to hand him over to a third country", Mr Kabir added.
But it would have to be a state that would never "come under pressure from the United States", he said.
Before the start of the air campaign, the Taliban had demanded evidence of Bin Laden's involvement in the attack and had offered to try him before an Islamic court inside Afghanistan - proposals that the US promptly rejected.
