Didn't see that coming.
Negotiators for the United States agreed to a draft peace deal with the Taliban on Jan. 26, according to Taliban officials, drawing closer than ever to ending the U.S.’s longest war. The deal, which isn’t official until agreed to by both sides, calls for the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan in 18 months, in exchange for a ceasefire from the Taliban, among other items. Taliban sources provided the draft pact to Reuters.
According to the Taliban sources, the hard-line Islamic group gave assurances that Afghanistan won’t be allowed to be used by al-Qaeda and ISIS terrorists to attack the United States and its allies–a key early demand by Washington. They said the deal included a ceasefire provision but they had yet to confirm a timeline and would only open talks with Afghan representatives once a truce was implemented.
This is good news however you look at it.
WHo should get credit for this??

Good luck trying to make a deal with TERRORISTS, the stupidity to think they would even actually uphold this is ridiculous.
They literally JUST had an incident the last few days there where people were blown up.
You dont negotiate with terrorists, nor a terrorist organization, this is stupid.
That being said yes I think we should pull it and bring ALL of our men and women home, but whoever thinks yourcan negotiate with an ideology that thinks you should die if you dont believe their religion is a complete idiot.

perhaps with another 20 years there, we can finally "win". The Russians sure tried, but came up a bit short. They must not have really tried hard enough.

The theatre of War is changing, so they have to do a deal or be thin on the ground elsewhere. So the girls in Afghanistan wont be getting an education anymore, and will have to wear the face veil again. That should upset women's lib.
