Afghanistan today is a messy, mixed picture. After almost four decades of war, there is no more active conflict. But the country is fully controlled by a Taliban regime just as brutal as it was in the 1990s, and it is suffering through searing levels of humanitarian and economic stress. Relative peace may have arrived, but at great cost.
