Why do the Taliban not try to conquer the Kabul Airport?

Currently there are some thousands of USA troops there, bound by strong regulations. The army of the Taliban counts hundreds of thousands, and they are not bound by strong regulations.

The USA had war with them 20 years long, and killed many of them.


  • they could get revenge,
  • they could catch prisoners/hostages,
  • they could "liberate" the airport,
  • they could prevent yet more people from fleeing,
  • they could make their win over Afghanistan complete,
  • they could demonstrate their strength to the world.

Instead, they silently sit around the USA troops and help the West to avoid the political problems caused by the refugees.

Why are they so friendly to their worst enemies?
