Obama and Karzai to Discuss Reconciliation with Taliban


Afghan President Hamid Karzai will join President Barack Obama in Washington next week for talks on how to reconcile with the Taliban.

It is believed Mr Karzai sought the talks in order to get US support for his efforts to hold peace talks with some of the senior Taliban leaders.

Administration officials have said they are hoping for a broad outline of the future strategy for Afghanistan to emerge from the meeting.

Are you kidding me? Make nice with the Taliban? WOW!!!

Okay I can see the positive in this, mainly we can wash our hands of Afghanistan ...finally. Although this possible outcome looks like we went in one big circle. A lot of American as well as other peace keeping Nation's soldiers were killed to try and win Afghanistan their freedom from the Taliban. What a waste!! IMO of course.

Edit to add: Right under this story was the following story:

Taliban militants carry out amputation sentence

Reconciliation with the Taliban indeed.

We cannot get rid of the taliban...just cant.
They wont leave, and the people of Afhganistan dont really want them gone either...the only real solution is to try and get them a bit more moderate and friendly to the west overall.

The taliban really isn't the issue...they actually know how to control the insanity there..albeit harshly. The problem was they allowed for some extremist elements in their society.

To hold peace talks with the taliban is like admitting hes not in there for a good enough reason.
