No I'm not. You are overestimating them.
The capabilities of the Taliban are limited to the territories they are familiar with and would be nothing without the aid of other countries and entities.
Besides skilled warfighting on their own turf and rote recalling of the Koran they have no contributions to offer.
Their lack of geopolitical awareness, primitive networking, unsophisticated financing and insulated tribal mentality makes them a non-entity in the global game.
Compare that to the advanced and intelligent work that the likes of Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood have been doing all over the world for decades.
The Muslim Brotherhood would be deeply offended for being compared to the Taliban.
It's like comparing the Jesuits to the Branch Davidians.
