The Taliban were founded in southern Afghanistan by Mullah Mohammad Omar, a member of the Pashtun tribe who became a mujahedeen commander that helped push the Soviets out of the country in 1989. In 1994.

Taliban is a fundamentalist Islamic force in Afghanistan.

The Taliban have always been citizens of Afghanistan.

They, unlike us are defending their own country.
It's awful to see those persons abandoning their home and leaving their life behind rather than to live under sharia law.

I don't like theocracies.

I don't like evil theocracies.

I think any theocracy will become evil.
Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
This is what happened to the CC. It was almost a theocracy since it ruled even the government in many cases, and in some cases it was the only ruler. I'm speaking of about 600 to 800 and through to maybe the 1800's.

I would fear even a Christian theocracy.

As you must be able to tell, the theocracies that don't serve God are not of God.
Hence, they are not theocracies at all.
Unless their "theo"(?) is the devil.

Interesting point.
But they THINK they're serving God...
You wouldn't mind a Christian Government?
It will be run by MEN....
