NYT: ‘ISIS Is Resilient in Afghanistan Despite U.S. Campaign’

I presume this condition exists because the ISIS program better fits with the Afghani DNA than does the American program. Liberal democracy is great for populations with an average IQ of 97 and higher. The average Afghan IQ is 84, four points lower than the average IQ of Mexico.

The Arab and latino worlds generally do better under authoritarian regimes.

New York Times:

The Islamic State is far from being vanquished in eastern Afghanistan, surviving intense pressure from American airstrikes and raids by United States and Afghan forces.
The group has waged brutal attacks that have displaced thousands of families and forced even some Taliban fighters to seek government protection.
