    The taliban arent always locals.
    Talibaan is multiple for Talib which means student in arabic.

    Their origins are from the quran madrassa's in the vague borderlands between pakistan and afghanistan, mixed with nutcases from other countries.

    I'm no expert but im willing to bet my ass the taliban movement is a saudi funded project that got out of hand.

    Replace Saudi with Pakistani and you're closer to it. The Pakistani ISI has had their fingers in that pie for decades.

    Ah guess I shouldn't have replaced one oversimplification with another. Anyway, the whole regions a fucking mess (as that chart floating around the net shows). Lots of **** stirrers+saudi money+pakistani intelligence meddling=so many problems it'll never be "fixed" like some wishful thinkers believe it will be.

    Eh we didn't have a whole lot directly to do with the rise of the Taliban. Yeah we packed up and went home after the Soviets left, leaving the area basically unwatched and we poured shitloads of munitions into the area which they surely benefited from, but they didn't get US support the same way they got support from others.

    Anyway enough of a threadjack, Gurkhas are cool.

I'm too lazy to start figuring out if there's an actual standard for deposing a foreign government and/or the entire political system of a country.
