Which is impossible.

The most vital need is to kill all the members of the Taliban and bin
Laden's group, plus all their supporters.  Once all those people are
delivered in small boxes, it may be possible to restore security and
remove the fear of conflict.

Until then, tough.  Not a single truck of food should go in when it
might be eaten by a person carrying a weapon for the Taliban.
