Does the Taliban in Afghanistan really need to be our enemy?
Facts: We didn't care when the Taliban took Kabul in 1996. The Taliban religious police is trained by the Saudi equivalent of religious police so let's not pretend we can't have an ally governed by hardcore islam. Al-Qaeda has nothing to do with the Taliban.
The Taliban gave Al-Qaeda safe haven in the late 90s. If someone is plotting an attack from your house, you are an accessory, It will happen again.
Can we cut a deal w/them? Sure. But without being vigilant against another attack and not allowing them to have camps within the country, it won't work.
I suggest you read about a British Prime Minister named Neville Chamberlain. He served between 1937 and 1940. Chamberlain believed by signing a peace agreement with Nazi Germany he had avoided England being involved in a war. Prime Minister Chamberlain was very wrong.
You can't compare nazi germany to the taliban. There are literally zero parallels. Though it's interesting to bring up the British as their involvement in the middle east post WW1 was disastrous and helped shape the instability we see today.
