Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What would be the worst that would happen if the Taleban were allowed to have the country back?
IMHO the Afghan war is a civil war among the Pashtun with the Taleban being one of the factions. The other ethnic groups (Tayik, Uzbek, Iranian...) would revert to the Northern Alliance and hold out in the fringes if the Taleban took over the Pashtun areas.

The peak-to-trough part of the business cycle is an outlier. Carnot would have died laughing.
