    Not everyone is suited for a democratically based system of government. A-stan is simply not compatible with their forever old tribal traditions, lack of education, etc.

    A-stanīs culture is way too foreign and unless you are willing to destroy that culture and rebuild it in our image, trying to offer something (usually money) in order to gain an illicit advantage on our way of doing things just hasn't been proven to work.

    The Taliban are not stupid people, and they are masters of insurgency and they play the game well.

    My understanding is that mostly countries with a population with an older median age and a large middle class do well with a democratic system of government.
    By these criteria, Afghanistan couldn't be less suited to it.

    After things get going steady under Petraeus people are going to be complaining and missing McChrystal.
