Taliban guerillas continue to operate, but are meeting resistance from the majority of Afghans. In parts of southern Afghanistan, the tribes were always pro-Taliban. It was from these tribes that most of the Taliban leaders came. But most of the locals resist the Islamic fundamentalism espoused by the Taliban. Case in point was recent attacks on four schools for girls. The Taliban oppose education for women. But three of the four schools had the damage repaired by local Afghans and classes resumed. The pro-Taliban activists are not strong enough to operate in the open. They keep their identities secret and operate at night, leaving hand written threats or proclamations in public places, or making feeble attacks on local police or foreign troops. A greater threat to police and foreign soldiers are the tribes heavily involved in the drug trade. These tribesmen have a lot more to defend and can afford more powerful weapons to do it with.
