I'm actually responding to Khushal ASSUMING his narrative were true, That if it were the sole motivating factor for the Taliban then Western Interventionalism at faulty that his home grown theory would be nullified.

Tired Of The Taliban
Jun 25, 2012 1:00 AM EDT
Villagers in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province rise up against the militants.

No one was more surprised than the men of Ghander village themselves by their sudden uprising against the Taliban. It began unexpectedly after evening prayers on a Sunday in late May, according to eyewitnesses in the dirt-poor farming community in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province. Dozens of men had gathered as usual in front of the mosque to trade gossip and discuss local events. But as they pulled their blankets tighter around their shoulders against the biting end-of-day wind, their conversation suddenly turned to a subject they had always avoided: their resentment of the Taliban. “We supported them for 10 years,” said one elder. “And what have we got in return? They’re not letting us send our children to school or to the provincial hospital. I guess their next idea will be to bury our daughters alive to make sure they never go to school, work in an office, or walk around without a veil.”

You don't naturally resist by killing/threatening/attacking your own people, you do it by PROTECTING the welfare of your own people.

^^That is an isolated incident, I think there is also one in paktya. We dont really know what it is yet, if it is real or some superficial thing that NATO created. Give it a couple of years before you start celebrating. Presently the most organized group that fights foreigners are the Taliban.

Your last statement: Insurgencies main focus is to create instability and do anything they can for the foreign created regime to fail. They are aware they can neither break nor challenge the foreign army directly, but can only break the domestic regime propped up by the foreigner.

it's not that isolated and its natural resistance. You asked for where it is, it's there. And if your explanation is correct; then the problems are not the regime, it's the destabilisers and people don't want to prevent something from working unless it's goal is to regain power for themselves. That verifies the Taliban are a problem irregardless of foreign action, they just want to subjugate.

Presently it is isolated since I have on;y heard of two incidences of such. similar things happened during the soviet days as well. Was it not masood that fought HIG and supposedly the soviets as well. did we not find out years later that masood was on the soviets payroll and was ordered to keep HIG at bay.

If the regime was not aproblem, then the taliban would not exist. Why would a resistance be needed to the taliban, is that not the regimes job. Why are they not doing their job and why are the people not supporting the regime?
