Who supports the Taliban? We do! We support just about anyone if they pledge not to grow poppies. Remember, whether someone is a terrorist or a freedom fighter is a question of who you ask, not what they do. And the Taliban are an instrument for government supported by Pakistan; the British Durand Line arrangement was to give half of Pakistan to Afghanistan after 100 years; Pakistan obviously need not worry about losing this much of its territory as long as Pakistani-bred leadership rules the country.
