My answer to Why Taliban doesn't want peace in Afghanistan?
Answer by Desmond Last:
The Taliban do want Peace In Afghanistan. Read their website it details their wish for Peace. It also everyday list the civilians that are killed by the Coalition and Afghan Forces.
Their website includes a message to President Trump advocating Peace.
Of course they do not list the civilians they kill. It would be a step in the right direction for the Taliban if they ensured they did not kill any civilians.
The Taliban are also acting as security for Chinese Resource Projects and they are rebuilding roads. They are also planting trees as part of their Climate Change Policy.
China and Russia would appear to be involving them in Peace Talks or at least are discussing theri involvement in a future Afghanistan.
Therefore why are we risking the lives of American and U.K Forces when Russia and China are treating them as a de-facto Government and China is taking advantage of their Security?
