The video paints a horrible picture. I am in doubt about the future there. You cannot identify a taliban if he don't want to be identified. And they walk village by village. One village cannot resist. The police/army does not know who to shoot at.

Wondering about the solution. Maybe the army should walk house by house and collect all weapons and explosives and maintain a hard front line. Kill anyone immediately who carries any weapon without military or police uniform. They are powerless if there is no weapon in their hands. Maybe this idea is rude and has collateral damage, but I think it is better than bombing which is counterproductive too.

The police/army has more resources at the moment, but it is not granted forever. They are losing relative manpower quickly, and material resources will change accordingly.
