Why US forces cannot or do not want to wipe out the Taliban?

There's a lot more to military strategy than simply wiping the opposition out. The Taliban are formed from the majority ethnic group in Afghanistan - that ethnic group will continue to be there long after operations in Afghanistan have ceased, and are always going to have relevance in Afghan society. Could we bomb a whole mountain into oblivion for the sake of wiping out a few Taliban leaders? Certainly. But, it would alienate that ethnic group further, which would ultimately be detrimental to the mission in Afghanistan, which is not simply limited to unseating the Taliban and eliminating key Al-Qaeda targets, but also creating a secure and stable country within the borders of Afghanistan.
