Since being driven out of Afghanistan in 2002 the Taliban has taken control of parts of Pakistan. In hindsight, we were a lot better off with them herding goats around Kandahar than we are with the Taliban studying nuclear launch codes in the Punjab.
Taliban (n) - The Pashtun for Students because they were originally recruited from Islamic madrasahs. They are an extremely strict fundamentalist Islamic sect that believes women are less human than goats and that one should never take any time away from studying religious texts unless that time is spent tormenting and killing others in the name of God. They are similar to American fundamentalist Christian sects.
