Is taliban shi'a or sunni? and why are they fighting us? Taliban is sunni. The war started because the Taliban had a hand in 9/11 (although it was Al Qaeda that was really behind it, they are both related groups and are associated with Osama Bin Laden). However, since Al Qaeda is a global terrorist organization, it would be extremely difficult to attack it (since it is based in many nations), so the US decided to weaken a strong base of Al Qaeda, and attack the Taliban which were fierce supporters of Al Qaeda. In my opinion, though I usually don't support foreign wars (such as Vietnam and the War on/in Iraq), I believe the NATO operations in Afghanistan are positive and justified since Taliban is truly an evil organization that committed horrible crimes in Afghanistan, transforming that nation into one of the most backwards countries of the world, and abusing the rights of all citizens of Afghanistan especially Afghan women. So NATO decided that the time was ripe to uproot the Taliban, and they have done so rather successfully, and though the Taliban still maintains some presence in Afghanistan, it is in an extremely weakened state when compared to what it was before the 2001 Invasion
