Should the Taliban officially be labeled a terrorist organization? Hmmm let's see... Do they cause terror and unlawfully use force with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons? Yes. Are they an organization? Yes. Is this question 10 years behind schedule? Yes. Should we show them respect and acknowledge their organization as an official government by negotiating with them. No! In other, less sarcastic words, yes, Please define the Taliban as a terrorist organization.
