    The Taliban isn't wanted there as the home team they just have guns.  

    I can't find for pakistan but for afghanistan, the taliban is a rather hated group.

    And i absolutely agree for places like iraq we need to build good education systems.  And good structures and not have crazy fundamentalists do it.

    But these crazy fundamentalists have already taken over and blow up schools and throw acid in the face of school children.  They are terrorists in their own country.
