believes foreign funding for the Taliban is channelled through
Pakistan’s Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) agency, Azimi
Money for the insurgency comes through donors in Gulf countries and a tax on Afghanistan’s booming drug trade, security analysts say.
Afghan security forces have launched a series of operations along the main highway that loops around the south of Afghanistan, killing around 100 militants in the last two weeks, Azimi said.
Meanwhile, Afghan and international troops have killed 20 senior militant leaders, including one from al Qaeda, in the last month and captured another seven, he said.
Western troops in Afghanistan have concentrated on targeting the Taliban leadership in an effort to degrade the insurgent fighting ability.[unquote]
Ok, here is the logic: It is said that when the Taliban was in control drug production was at it’s lowest level and that when the American’s returned it increased. So who is taxing the drugs which provides the funds to attack the Taliban, who identify ISIS foreign fighters as being from Pakistan? First it was Taliban, then al Qaeda and finally ISIS.
Question: Could the funding if ISIS fighters sourced from Pakistan be a covert way of eradicating Tribalism in in Afghanistan, a situation that has proven to be a problem for invaders for centuries.

If there is one consensus among Afghan leaders and their American counterparts, it is that dealing with Pakistan is both vital and difficult.
American and Afghan officials accuse Pakistan’s powerful military intelligence service of maintaining influence with the Taliban and the group’s most ascendant faction, the Haqqani network, which is behind many of the large-scale attacks on Afghan cities. Through those links, Pakistan has the ability to control at least some of the tempo of the fighting in Afghanistan — and it has done little to constrain it over the past two years, the officials say.
At the same time, Pakistan enjoys leverage over the American military response to that militant violence: The United States mission has always relied on Pakistani air and ground routes for supplies to the troops in Afghanistan.
( Interesting that Taliban fighters recognise ISIS as being foreign fighters from Pakistan, according to the video ISIL and the Taliban. Also the fact, that if it is true, Bin Laden was safely hidden in a compound quite close to a military establishment within Pakistan. The Pakistani fighter’s motive for fighting for ISIS is money so who has been paying them?)
