It is a common event in human history for violent groups to evolve from their terrorist backgrounds into a more moderate status. In Bakakhshan province in Afghanistan a new style Taliban has become to emerge that is fundamentally different from Taliban groups elsewhere in the country. Many of these Taliban men have now accepted some of the pleasures of modern life. They allow young girls to go to school. They enjoy watching television and dancing to music. They regard beheading enemies to be a violation of the Koran and the meaning of the Muslim religion. Just imagine, members of Taliban dancing and singing. What next, to sing and dance with WOMEN!
This group of Taliban warriors seek to create a viable economy and establish some form of modern government that is not corrupt. Perhaps, these are Taliban who deserve some contact by the Afghan government which might agree to work with them. Perhaps, it is time to establish modern Taliban groups that want to end war and work for peace at the local level. A heck of a lot better than sending in the drones of destruction.
