UK: Taliban must be in government

Britain's foreign secretary has suggested that senior Taliban figures be given positions in the Afghan government to bring an end to the violence in the country.

Now the Taliban is not the enemy, Al-Qaeda is the last enemy.
Sooner or later they will realize that individuals with Al-Qaeda characteristics will always exist therefore they will give Al-Qaeda couple of seats in Afghanistan and other Arab states.

But since Arab states are mostly dictatorship,
Al-Qaeda will always exist and will always
haunt the world resource hungry powers.

The world has found out about issues such as these:

In a game of survival, US military contractors are ‘forced to pay suspected insurgents to protect American supply routes.’ An Afghan private security official reveals, “Most escorting is done by the Taliban.”

Now they are going to make the buying of the resistance official.

The US government is ‘financing the very same insurgent forces in Afghanistan that American and NATO soldiers are fighting.’ The US military provides funding to the militant group through contractors.

Source: Same as above.

Desperate? Tell me what you guys think..

thanks for your time

I will just say this: Pakistan is a "sleeping giant" in a very real and growing sense. First of all, it is nuclear-armed. Second of all, the citizens view the US with more distrust than the Taliban or Al Qaeda. Thirdly, there are deep rifts both within and between the governement/military. Fourthly, a large number of powerful Pakistani military and political leaders pay lip-service to the US but maintain true sympathy with Islamist elements. Fifthly, Northern Pakistan is a virtual bolthole for Islamic extremists and others who move freely back and forth the Pakistan/Afghanistan border. Sixthly, the US has exacerbated the situation over the past decade, first under Bush and now under Obama, by continuously adopting short-term, ad-hoc tactical policy vis-a-vis Pakistan at the expense of long-term strategic wisdom.

Pakistan is the ticking time-bomb to watch very carefully.

Having lived in what was nominally Pakistan, you jolly well better believe that Pakistanis view the US with mistrust. What has the US ever done for anyone under its control The US government takes a racist, overlord view of all of the third world countries and it comes out in atrocities.
In the first place Pakistanis don't trust our morals. Our religion isn't the same as theirs, and they regard their religion as more moral, more to be trusted. Child brides aren't as big as issue as peeing on the Koran might be. But don't kid yourselves, our armies are not saints. Our government is relying on Rambo to teach our soldiers to be MEN, the gentle kind occupying soldier is not part of their training. Kill first and ask questions later, maybe, or figure out how to cover it up later, is more the policy. Our presence in Pakistan, Afghanistan,Iraq or any other country on the planet, and that includes illegal unconstitutional military presence in the US, is stupid and counterproductive. But unfortunately the agenda behind our occupation of these countries is not to keep the peace, or prevent terrorist but the bring about "peace" iron mt style, total lock down control of anybody left alive.

For Pete's sake, 911 was an inside job. What are we doing there? Nothing good!

What are we doing over there is still an open question, and is still to be answered correctly by the people in control.

But it is not important for the people in charge to tell the truth, and the truth finders will never see the ultimate truth but only small pieces. I'm falling in to the conclusion that the ultimate truth might be too much for the masses to handle, or would cause the people to topple the powers. That being said the truth becomes a national security issue, and keeping the truth hidden becomes a national security priority.

I'm afraid we will never know the ultimate truth, because the next couple of wars, when and if the US is toppled either by its own people or external forces, the truth will be written by the winners. And that to me is not the truth but only one sided truth, similar to what we see today.

Will we ever have a government which is obliged to tell the truth to its employers? After all we, the tax payers pay a sh1t load of money to keep the country going, the least we deserve is the truth.
