Awwwww come on diddums at least quote the entire sentence:

"Afghanistan today is light years down the road in terms of improvement to what it was under the Taliban in 2001."

But on a brief selection of metrics and we could compare:

Education compare children in full time education now compared to during the "rule" of the Taliban.

Life Expectancy Now it is 60.7 years compared to 41 under Taliban "rule"

Healthcare compare access to healthcare now for all to what was an extremely restricted access under the Taliban

Agriculture vastly improved since 2001

Infrastructure vastly improved since 2001

Foreign Investment non-existent in 2001 now massive from China, India, Japan and Iran.
