evidence that the US had anything to do with putting the taliban in power. Closing Argument US is a positive example b/c it back the US’s stance on terrorism and not the oil trade. After 9/11 after 3000 deaths, we stayed there for right terror not to win oil. Suppressing the growth of the extremist islamist ideas is a main reason why we have stayed in the regions. The opium trade by the taliban has proven that they are willing to make any effort to gain profit. This is an ongoing war, there is no end, just like the war on terror - so there is no clear way to know who is actually winning. There has been proof of the US’s actions positively working to fight against the drug trade. When the US gave power back to the afghan, and they weren’t ready to be in control, the fact that the US was there was a positive in that they US helped to regain control of the taliban trying to make back control. Lastly, using child solier and the sexcual abuse is something that the US was able to address b/c they were present there. US’s action with the mujahideen was not as direct a cause of the creation of the taliban. Our actions have been positive. US involvement is negative. As evidence by the fact that it is based on oil and not on preventing terrorism. US supported the mujahideen who both later became a part of the taliban and al-qaeda. US supported them with advanced weapons ignorant of the fact of how they were using them. The taliban/mujahideen created and had very harsh crimes for petty law. US ignored the terms of the Lahey Law which required withdrawal because of the evidence around violence against children/sexual crimes. Lastly, drug trade has not been impacted by the US. Opium deemed vital to the taliban’s organization b/c it supplied funding. Scholar argued that the war would have been over had the US taken the approach in eradicating the opium
