Ghani explicitly is the one who refused a ceasefire and launched a "kill all Taliban" campaign which is why the Taliban are going for his head. He did it to himself.
I'm waiting to see if we get a reverse-Ghadaffi or if the Glowies do an op to extract him with that in mind or something similar.
They are the closest thing to what AnCaps would cause a "decentralized government." They have leaders and an inner theological ring of clerics in high command, but their movement is largely cultural and represents a mixture of the voice of rural Afghan men and the lessons of what survivors they have from the Bin Laden days or Soviet days that came before the Mujahideen.
>they re vocabulary consists nothing of "god"
Because they saw the success of ISIS which was the first non-theologically-focused state in the region, and restructured the Taliban to similarly attract young men. That's why the Taliban and ISIS fight each other. They figured out the trick is to have the theological state internally via officers and the laws that govern the organization, and externally show an acting stable "secular" government to attract men to join them. One of the major hurdles they ran into under US occupation was figuring out how to train soldiers. Before the internal change it took closer to six months to two years to train someone. After the swap to remove theological lessons from a soldier's curriculum and instead follow an American WWI education standard with Islamic studies instead of Bible studies for children, they found that they could train soldiers in about 3 months instead.

That tends to happen when you've been invaded multiple times by every superpower and surrounding country since 1950.
The Taliban are
Democracy, and damn are they ramming it hard up the US-influenced Afghanistan's ass.
