"Taliban fighters, whom US-led forces spent billions of dollars trying to defeat, are now openly active in 70% of Afghanistan, a BBC study has found.

Months of research across the country show how areas the Taliban threaten or control have surged since foreign combat troops left in 2014.

The Afghan government played down the report, saying it controls most areas.

But recent attacks claimed by Taliban and Islamic State militants have killed scores in Kabul and elsewhere…."

I think people in the media keep lumping everything on the Taliban, even when ISIS has had a definite hand.

In other words, I wonder how many of those killed by "the Taliban" are actually victims of ISIS.

PS. Is it me or has Western media been extremely quiet lately about all the goings on of the fanatics from Libya all the way down to Nigeria? I wonder if that's where Al-Baghdadi is hiding these days? He's been reported killed on 5 separate occasions in just the last couple of years, only to surface again somewhere else a short time later.

Don't you know that Al-Baghdadi is actually a set of identical octuplets? We have just been thining out their numbers.

Media's too busy Trump bashing/hating. They don't have enough time left over to spend on something as trivial as Libya, Taliban, Al-Baghdadi etc.

Lost Wolf,

I fear you might be right. Or bashing Russia, because they think it causes the same effect on the public. Still almost absolute silence about the uranium we no longer have access to. :)

Western media has willfully chosen to turn a blind eye on the real threats against the West.
