    Obama hints at talks with Taleban

    President Obama has suggested there could be talks with moderate elements of the Taleban in Afghanistan as part of a process of reconciliation.
    Mr Obama told the New York Times that US forces in Iraq had persuaded some Islamic radicals alienated by the tactics of al-Qaeda to co-operate.
    He said there might be similar opportunities in Afghanistan, although the situation there was more complex.
    Asked if the US was winning in Afghanistan, Mr Obama replied: "No."
    A month into his presidency, Mr Obama authorised the deployment of up to 17,000 extra US troops to Afghanistan.

    Continued at the BBC...
    "Because we're a great nation, our challenges seem complex; it will always be this way. But as long as we remember our first principals and believe in ourselves, the future will always be ours." -Reagan

    Way to go Obama! You keep fucking up the economy so it should come to no surprise that you are going to fuck up our national security.

    Every day Obama is starting to look more and more like Jimmy Carter.

    At 1st glance it may seem so but to me...this just reeks of a weak POTUS that doesn't have a clue.

    As you say, we'll just have to see.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    With Paul Volker as one of his economic advisors and the Queen as Sect. of State, we are in deep trouble.

    none of this should come as a surprise to any of us.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    It doesn't really; I just thought he'd take his time about shredding the economy and surrendering to terrorists. Once he turns our sovereignty over to the UN he gets the hat trick.

    Someone needs to explain to him that there are no 'moderate' taliban.
    If they were 'moderate' then they wouldn't be taliban at all.
    Taliban are extremists. Period.
    If leftists didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.
