Default US troops and Taliban to begin talks

BBC News - US and Taliban to open direct peace talks in Qatar

Id this a good thing in your opinion?

In my opinion it is the only real way to end the conflict so a good thing

I see this is as just being a huge waste of time and a trap.

But for who is the question...

Objectively I'm not bothered. Cut the head of the snake and all that.

Obligatory:



But in all seriousness, didn't we do something like this before and it didn't pan out and/or was a fakeout? I can't remember.

Afganistan has never been sucessfully occupied, all foreign forces have had to negotiate their way out of expensive, bloody conflicts........

Probably is, I can see the CIA Black Bagging a few of the Taliban delegates after the proceedings are said and done.

In all honesty Pakistan needs to conquer that worthless excuse of a country. The Taliban will never agree to anything because they support a Theocracy similar to Iran's goverment. On the other side the Afghan goverment won't back down because they want freedoms for their people, and non-violence in a extremely violent country.

Wate of time in all honesty.

Terry Taliban is AQ's meatshield. Nobody gives a shit about Stan, and Obama's "this ain't a country building project" gameplan needs to be enacted yesterday or else you'll have Iraq 2.0.

The Taliban always were a legal (?) political movement, it's just they're slightly more militant, and more inclined to fight. The AQ headsheds have been gutted, and compromised, and Taliban leadership average age has been reduced by around 12 years last time I heard (so most commanders are around 16+ years younger than what they were at the start of the conflict).

They're not a worthy opponent, and are utterly crushed. The worst they can do now to destabilize the country is carry on with bombings, and that was only really effective against political opponents and foreign invaders. Becoming legit political party is now their safety net, throwing in the towel. No more fucking around like in Now Zad or Sangin, that shit is over with.

The countries a mess, but we now have ensured we have friends in high places now (Karzai, and his interior, etc); unless they pull a Mugabe, then it is essentially a carte blanche to kick in doors and shoot the bad guys in the face if AQ ever show up in the near future; and why would they? Syria, Africa and the Lebanon are having all the fun, and I'd be surprised if they weren't already making plans in South America, with all the fun and games in there at he moment and with the Football and Olympics there.
