The Taliban started in 1994 when Pakistan gave them the Pakistan government. From there, they got out of hand and was eventually taken out of power when Pakistan decided to have a voting system and scheduled voting in Spring '05.
Because the Pakistan government are sheltering them.
Pakistan has a jumbled up system consisting of the beurueacray,government,army and a significant foreign prsence especially that of the USA.However,the Taliban don't have any part in its governance.
Pakistan is a country, an Islamic republic. The Taliban is a faction of inhabitants in Pakistan that wants to bring about cultural change in accordance with its view of Islamic traditions and teachings. Overall Pakistan could best be described as multi-cultural and multi-ethnic. In terms of what the Taliban control in Pakistan, they control a region in the northwest of the country that is historically called Waziristan. The Pakistani central government controls the reast of… Read More
Well the taliban are trying to destroy/take over both. Afghanistan's internationally recognized government is not trying to destroy pakistan.
What percent of Pakistan does the Taliban control and how will that change with the February 16 truce with Pakistan?
The area around the Pakistan Afganistan border is one affected by the Taliban, but the Taliban does not actually control any part of Pakistan. Pakistan has complete control over it's country, but it is fighting against the Taliban who are trying to gain control.
Yes. While the Taliban does not control the Afghan government anymore, it does control sections of southeast Afghanistan and the Waziristan region of Pakistan. It is actually quite powerful.
Pakistan has not supported the taliban. it is completely against it just like the rest of the world
Why did the Pakistan government make a truce with the Taliban to accept the system of Islamic Shariah law in the Swat valley?
The Pakistan Government did that for the simple matter of fact that the Taliban were causing a lot of violence in the valley which was resulting in huge human and property losses, also majority in the valley wanted the implentation of such laws ! This will definitely restore peace and bring prosperity to that region.
Afghanistan and Pakistan
Afghanistan and Pakistan.
in 2007 the taliban took control of the swrat district
I think he wants the Afghans to fight their own war with the Taliban and bring the US troops home. In the meantime, they are trying to root out resistance to the government. He is trying to negotiate more help from Pakistan, or at least get them to stop sheltering the Taliban.
The Taliban is a political group in the Middle East that is known for their extreme violence. In the past they have ruled in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The Taliban do not all speak the same language, but the predominant language that they use is PASHTO, since this is the dominant language in southeast Afghanistan and the bordering regions of Pakistan. However, since the Taliban operated all over Afghanistan, there are substantial minorities of Taliban who speak DARI, TAJIK, UZBEK, and (in Pakistan) URDU.
The Taliban are not a 'people' in the meaning of ethnic group like e.g. the Pashtun. "Taliban" means "students" (of the Quran) and is the plural of the word 'talib', student. Taliban are fundamentalist Muslims who may come from any ethnic group in Pakistan and Afghanistan - or even from outside that area - and who decide to join that organization and pledge allegiance to its leaders.
The War in Afghanistan has not resulted in the elimination of the Taliban and they have regrouped within Pakistan. The fact that the Taliban has successfully resisted their annihilation is a point to them, but it is a far cry from "winning". The Taliban was pushed out of power and they remain out of power.
Who? Pakistani Taliban or Afghanistani Taliban? Afghani Talibans are fighting to win the battle to take over (retake) power in Afghanistan, while the Pakistani Taliban wants to show solidarity to their Afghani colleagues and trying to implemet 'shariya' law in Pakistan, as well to win over hearts and minds of the Pakistani people
Taliban is the most powerful and dangerous terrorist group in the world. They are creating disturbance in India. They are attacking INDIA.
It's actually the government file name of terrorists, there is no taliban per say, no one group but the government started calling terrorist groups taliban so it stuck.
Fighting the Taliban for Power
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Mini Van, Turban, etc
The six people who killed 130 children in Peshawar, Pakistan, were members of the Taliban. Their names have not yet been released to the general public. The Taliban on Pakistan are based in the Southwestern city of Quetta.
Cultivated by Pakistan, the Taliban gained control of Kabul in 1996 and controlled most of the entire country by 1998.
There is no Terrorist Group which work out of Afghanistan even in 911 was planed out side Afghanistan (Pakistan and etc ) Currently Taliban save haven is in Pakistan which Pakistan ISI and MI is directly using them as paramilitary (Taliban = AQ ) against International forces for some specific goals.
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran and Lybia
Afghanistan has been engulfed in wars for decades. From 1978-1991, Afghanistan had a civil war between its Communist government and the Mujaheddin Rebel groups. The Soviet Union was involved in this war for most of length, buttressing the Communist government which eventually collapsed. Following this war, the Taliban, one of the Mujaheddin groups, effectively conquered 90% of the country and brought about a repressive atmosphere. In 2001, the US government and the NATO coalition invaded… Read More
No they won't. It depends on who "us" is, but generally, no. The Taliban have a local interest in Afghanistan and Pakistan. If you do not live in either of those countries, you are generally safe from the Taliban.
The Taliban still wield immense power in tribal parts of northwest Pakistan, often called Waziristan, and in isolated pockets in southeast Afghanistan.
No. They have never succeeded in taking control of Pakistan, rather Pakistan Army has successfully launched Air and Ground offensive against them, driving them from Northern Area of Pakistan to Afghanistan.
It may be the next Afghanistan. It may be the next Taliban country. It may be a new coup. Everything is possible in Pakistan
What is the Obama administration's response to the February 16 truce between Pakistan and the Taliban?
they were not supportive of that.
They originated in northern Pakistan and then moved into Afghanistan. They ruled Afghanistan from 1996-2001.
for sure! have you seen him in a turban? he looks just like a talibanese.
No, because the Taliban wants Pakistans Nukes. Who knows what they will do with them? Jack Dombrowski, genius, said "We must not let the Taliban get Pakistans nukes"
The US military armed the Northern Alliance and assorted warlords, supported them with arms and reconnaissance so they were able to kick the Taliban out of power and caused many of them to flee into Pakistan.
it's called taliban
The U.S. and Pakistan aided the Taliban against the Soviet Union.
not really...there bunch of Taliban
The countries are Afghanistan, Pakistan , Iran , Iraq, Libya, Kazakstan and Syria
Pakistan created the Taliban side by side with USA to fight USSR. Once mission accomplished, both turned their backs on them and bombed them instead.
Taliban movements adherents are mostly found in Afghanistan, where they briefly ruled prior to 2001 American invasion. There is also significant Taliban presence in tribal Areas of western Pakistan.
The original reason that the US declared war on the Taliban Government of Afghanistan was that government's protection of al-Qaeda after the events of September 11th. After the Taliban were forced out of the government and the US had the freedom to pursue al-Qaeda suspects, the Taliban have continued fighting, with the intent of retaking power.
Pakistan has a lot of social issues. The Sunnis and the Kurds are at war with each other. Also, the Taliban are amongst the most dangerous of groups, and are thus making Pakistan a social time bomb.
The Taliban was never in Iraq. It was formerly the governing authority in Afghanistan (1991-2001) and is now a rebel group that controls territory in some of southeast Afghanistan and the northwest Pakistan region of Waziristan.
In September 1996
They took it over and ran the government.
