Quashing the Taliban. A reasonable country (e.g., not Pakistan) would have tried to patrol their borders and keep the Taliban from infiltrating back in and getting refuge in Pakistan. Sure, a few would get through, but a decent country would have had the their border become the anvil to the NATO/Iranian Hammer. Remember, us and Iran co-operated against the Taliban in 2001.

The intent was to at least disrupt, if not destroy al-Qaeda, the Taliban were collateral damage. That goal was met a long time ago.

Without a specific target there is nothing to quash. Having Pakistan more reasonable would had little effect on the Taliban forces.
