    I can't believe this, but I think I agree with you. I can't imagine any reason for the Taliban to seek peace except that they want some time to regroup. On top of that, they might fear that the locals are getting too westernized and might not let them take the country back over when the coalition forces leave.


    Has hell frozen over?

    We can not win in Afg. and anyone that thinks so is a fool. The Taliban will just wait till we leave and come back in. The poppy fields provide them too much income for them to just walk away. It is time for us to leave that shithole of a country. Eight years is enough.

    The Taliban tangled with the Aussie 1st Commando and an SAS force...and regretted it ever since.

    HARD.

    Obama will clear out in a NY minute. However, if there were a conservative in office, this might be his response to that:

    Q. How can you tell a Taliban diplomat?

    A. He's out of ammo.
