    This article seems to have disappeared, but I read it either from this site or perhaps a tweet. If I remember, it was basically that the Taliban want power, and that’s it? Maybe I do not recall correctly, but I do not remember much of a motivation for wanting that power. In my mind – and perhaps this is just how I think – people want power for a reason. Fear, money, greed, lust. For instance, I believe many in the US strive for power out of fear that the current leadership is ineffective. Why else does do so many run out and buy all the bullets in the stores?

    I wish I understood more about the Taliban and their motivations. Not those motivations for the simple bomber, but an upper level person who could choose to do many different things with their life.

    But, I am 33 articles behind on this site, so maybe the answer lies later on 🙂

    Well, I got to the end the blog and found “My Life With The Taliban”, so we’ll see what I learn from it.
