The Taliban is a Sunni Islamic fundamentalist group that ruled Afghanistan from 1996 until 2001, when a U.S.led invasion rid the taliban for providing refuge to al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. The Taliban regrouped across the border in Pakistan, they operate an insurgency and shadow government aimed at the government in Kabul. The taliban, when takin over afganistan set certain restrictions on people also. Mainley woman had these restrictions. some included the need for a burqa and being acompanied by a man at all times. The subgroup that will be discussed is the al-qaeda. This is the more agressive extreamist form of the taliban. Al-Qaeda, an international terrorist network, is considered the top terrorist threat to the United States. The group is wanted for its September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, as well as a host of lesser attacks. These two groups can go hand and hand and is the main reason for the war in Afganistan.To continue on with taliban, The taliban is still in control of major parts of Afganistan. With help from the Al-qeada the taliban is putting up a great fight for control.

The supplies of the Taliban is very different than the supplies of the American soldiers. The american soilder is very well packed and is very elite training wise and equipment wise. The taliban on the other hand is not. The taliban has one firearm and no protective gear. They carry very limited ammunition. While the american soilders on the other hand, carry two maybe even three firearms with them. They wear a plate carrier which holds 4 bullistic plates they carry 7, 30 round magizenes. Six on your person and one in your gun. Not including your sidearm. The American army carries A full lenth M16 with trigicon 4x maginifcation Red dot optic. This will varie between which branch. The taliban carries what ever they can get their hands on. This maybe an Ak-47 or even a bolt action Mosin. Many prefer the AK-47 for its reliablility. Also the Rocket Propelled Grenade or RPG is a widly used anti vehical launcher. The US soldiers use M203 or M320 grenade lanchers but most of the time leave it up to the air support for Vehical born threatsThe taliban is very make shift also. They make thier own bullets at times and can be seen picking up spent brass in Front of the Forward Operating Bases or F.O.B's.


There are many tactics used my the taliban and al-qeada. Many of these use gorilla war tactics and a series of ambushes and counter attacks. These include the use of traps and Improvised Explosive Devices, or I.E.D's. According to An IED can be almost anything with any type of material and initiator. It is a "homemade" device that is designed to cause death or injury by using explosives. IEDs can be produced in varying sizes, functioning methods, containers, and delivery methods. IEDs can utilize commercial or military explosives, homemade explosives, or military ordnance and ordnance components.They are unique in nature because the IED builder has had to improvise with the materials at hand. Designed to defeat a specific target or type of target, they generally become more difficult to detect and protect against as they become more sophisticated.For and example, A group of soldiers are doing a patrol through a market. There is an I.E.D. there for sure. But what is it? Is it that box, or that fruit crate, or even that chicken.There is no way of knowing until it is too late. Other tactics like previously stated are things such as ambushes. The taliban would lead the soldiers into a dead end when suddenly fire breaks out and they are getting shot at from every direction. They must use tactics like these because their equipment is too inferior to the equipment used my the American soldiers.
