As an American? I'm all for bringing an end to our part in the war by all means necessary. They've been fighting there since 1979. Nothing will end
war there....but we need the exit door and I suppose if this helps by some counter-intuitive miracle? It's worth a shot. I term it that way for a
reason beyond by inherent distrust and dislike for the Taliban. This appears in another article on the same story:
The Afghan Taliban opened the office to help restart talks on ending the 12-year-old war, saying it wanted a political solution that would bring
about a just government and end foreign occupation.
Senior Barack Obama administration officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak on the record, described
the office opening to AP as a stepping stone to full Taliban renouncement of al
The Taliban and Al Qaeda were different things with daylight between them in 2001. Bush even offered them 3 chances to renounce and give up Al Qaeda
at that time to entirely prevent war. Now I think we all know he made those offers, knowing they would be refused..but they were made across world
press and public. I often wonder how things may have gone, had they done it to call his bluff. Water under the bridge now, though.
They aren't different things anymore, that I see or have seen for years. Wishful thinking is indicated by believing they are capable of fully
separating themselves at this point for more than political expediency and temporarily, to see US forces leave.
Though..Again? Here? I'll be the Ugly American if thats what I am in saying it. I'll simply say I don't CARE anymore, if it gets our men and women
out of that hell hole and back on U.S. Soil to live their lives here. Not killing and dying over there.
