Haven't you seen that history tends to repeat itself in Afghanistan ?
Last to give Talibans air defence weapons were the US and today they are leaving pants down after 20 years of useless war.
Taliban don't care about chinese products. They live very well without them in their mountains.
US give Stingers to mujahedeens, not to Talibans, which appeared after the fall of Najibulah. Talibans than defeated US sponsored mujahedeens in the nineties.
Talibans are not stupid and they want to remain in power after the war, so they have to offer to Afghanistanis something else and not only Quran and AK-47. They need trade and investments and rebuilding of destroyed Afghanistan. They send delegations to Iran, Russia and China to confirm, that they are in business in Silk road projects, which will bring economical opportunity to Afghanistan. This si why Talibans are so active in capturing towns and provinces in the northern Afghanistan, where Silk road rute is planed. Road and railroad...
When Talibans will take control of whole Afghanistan, war will end. Neither Russia neither China will go in Afghanistan militarely. They will go in with companies, trade and investments.
