Yeah, but these guys have been doing it this way for 3000 years. Surely, a few bunker busters aren't enough to stamp on all of them. What are you going to give them after you've beaten them. A harsher life? I doubt it. They know this.
Could this be what happens to all of the great ancient civilizations. They budded, blossomed, and then shriveled. You see it again and again in history: Rome, Egypt (a couple times), the Mayan, Grecian, Persia, etc. It kinda seems that all great civilizations fall, and for a number of different reasons. Perhaps what is happening in Afganistan is a sign of shriveling, but I doubt it.
