Successes & Failures
S: Implementing social changes and new laws such as banning music, photographs and education for women.
F: the Taliban's extreme views caused the formation of an opposing group (ISIS) and have created more conflict.
F: The country's isolation hurt the national economy in Afghanistan.
This group initially was popular in Afghanistan. Before the U.S. got Osama Bin Laden the Taliban was a much larger threat, or at least a more publicized, group but the focus has now shifted to ISIS(L). Although the focus has shifted this does not mean the group is not a threat. ISIS and the Taliban are not the same group, they actually have opposing views and are at war.
