Only those with in an Obama led administration that has no coherent foreign policy would believe that any agreements made with the Taliban would result in any different outcome than in our departure from Iraq.
Thanks again for losing another war Obama. Significant gains toward a democracy in the area were made by sacrificing gains on behalf of the Afgan people, blood spilled, limbs lost and those who gave their lives of US and coalition troops who follow a washed up politician rather than a Commander-in-Chief.
Once again Obama pandered for votes putting his election ahead of a foreign policy that would have led to a different outcome.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
The Taliban’s leadership council has decided against holding peace talks with Hamid Karzai’s regime under any circumstances, unnamed Taliban sources said Jan. 30, Afghan Islamic Press reported.
The Taliban will only hold prisoner exchange talks and will not accept a ceasefire or the current Afghan constitution, the sources said.
Taliban leadership remains united on the issue, but the Taliban would split into two groups if its leaders held peace talks with the Karzai regime, a Taliban military commander said. Current peace talks with the United States have failed to establish a Taliban office or allow Taliban representatives who have travelled to Qatar to move about freely, a source said.
