    Yes, people don”t understand this when they talk about “the Taliban, that it has changed over the years. They can only see one word and stick to it. The newer Taliban have had to adapt, for example they have to allow music, things like that. They have turned more toward nationalism even though they are still also Islamists. But the degree varies. Likewise people think al-Qaeda in Syria or Yemen or wherever are the same organizations as Usama bin Laden”s al-Qaeda. bin Laden took up arms against Washington because of the hundreds of thousands, mostly children, dying in Iraq because of the starvation sanctions, and did not want to fight Shias. Whereas “al-Qaeda in Syria was started by bitter Iraqi Sunnis who had lost the elections to the Shia majority, and simply want to kill Shias, or Alawites first. I recall reading a former member”s account of how intense their hatred of Shias is. Which is why Washington helps them.
