A truly informative article, but I deleted the line in reference to the term "taliban" that said "It has no other significance." It was a poor intro for paragraphs that explain the significance of differences among taliban. If the explanation is true, the assertion of insignificance is not. The explanation appears more true than the authoritative assertion.
It's "all good" though. These sort of grand assertions probably help a writer get an article going and help establish premises in the thought process, but sometimes somebody else probably needs to clean up.
I deleted the unreferenced text and reduced the article to a stub. I'm not sure how far it is likely to develop here given how few edits it has attracted, but time will. --Bob Burton 05:39, 2 January 2007 (EST)
