Lol no! No one is going to be dropping nukes on anyone. The US will probably just pull out like the Soviets and the British did when they came to conquer Afghanistan. But as of now Pakistan has been a big target for high ranking Al Qaeda and Taliban members to hide there. Pakistan has been using counterterrorism operations to push them out or capture them. So if we leave Pakistan will be dealing with them.
Seriously? Really? How foolishly young are you? What about the thousand of innocent villagers, hundreds of children included, who will die or suffer from radiation poisoning? What about the innocent people who will starve to death because their land and food sources will be irradiated for many decades to come? And how about the total loss of our political allies for violating international law and basically committing an act considered a declaration of war, thereby being the instigator of WWIII in which many more millions will die, thousands of Americans included? Are you prepared to go and die in a war we started by a thoroughly stupid act? Theres a REASON we have agreed with other countries NOT to use nukes and to do our best to prevent their use by others. We havent gone thru all the trouble we have to keep North Korea and Iran from using nukes just to do something collossally stupid like use them ourselves. Real life isnt a video game. People really get hurt and really DIE in real nuclear attacks and most of them are innocent people. Less idiotic minds than you grasp the horrific and far reaching effects of nuclear arms and have made pacts never to use them again and to do their best to keep them from being used.
One does not take a blowtorch to make coffee, nor a shotgun for a fly. The best way to stop the Tali is to employ them out of it; it's cheaper. If they have to become educated to earn a good living, they will become moderate and less frightened of differences (one value of a liberal education is it takes away the fear of diversity). So, find an industry they can pursue which necessitates a good education, and give them tax incentives to do it. Dry up their opium and hash income after you have it up and running. Once you have a middle class in Afghanistan, you will no longer have the Taliban-- you may have other problems, but the Tali will not be as one of them.
