    Taliban Opens Office to Talk With US, Afghan Government

    Progress toward peace is being made!
    Taliban Opens Office for Talks with US, Afghan Government

    And the stated purpose of this:

    “One, to reach understanding and initiate talks with countries of the world for the purpose of improving relations with them; two, to support a political and peaceful solution, which [would] include [the] end of the occupation of Afghanistan and establishment of an independent Islamic system…; three, to hold meetings with the Afghans as times may demand,” he said.
    The people of Afghanistan deserve peace and it appears that the Taliban is more than ready to bring it. There is little doubt that theirs is the popular movement the people have been waiting for.

    Now, if they would stop throwing acid in the faces of little girls who want to go to school, and other such atrocities, then perhaps their peace overtures might be believable.

    This is just one of the pitfalls of religion. Similar to the child abuse of indoctrination children into the kristyun religion at an age where they are incapable of making their own decisions. In any case, a small price to pay for peace and security according to the people who are choosing the Taliban over the others.

    Then, on the other hand, it could be that those kind of stories are US demonizing propaganda stories and not much more. In any case, the line about the US being there to help the little girls to go to school, was sort of abandoned a long time ago.

    Or: a face full of acid is better than a body full of US made bullets!

    Progress toward peace is being made!
    this morning: US-Taliban Afghanistan peace talks in Qatar cancelled | World news | guardian.co.uk

    foggy bottom (state dept): "bumps in the road"

    Asked when the talks would now take place, a source in Doha told Reuters: "There is nothing scheduled that I am aware of." Asked if that meant they would not happen on Thursday, the source added: "Yes, that's correct."

    It's neither the Christians nor the USA who is shooting girls for daring to go to school.

    LONDON – Just five months after she was shot in the head by the Taliban in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, apparently for defying a ban on girls' education, Malala Yousafzai returned to school, this time in the safer confines of central England.

    Why do Americans hate the idea of peace talks so much? And as for brutality toward a little girl, how is this so much more important that killing their own doctors for aiding a woman to have an abortion? Or a Hispanic man shooting a black man in cold blood for walking home with a package of skittles as his only weapon?

    You mean like decapitating 10-year old boys as spies?

    I don't think Americans hate the idea of peace talks. I do think that if they aren't naive, credulous fools, they'll take any promises made by the Taliban for exactly what they are: Lies justifiable because they're being made to infidels.

    I don't think Americans hate the idea of peace talks if those talks can be productive.

    Peace talks with nutters who bomb abortion clinics wouldn't be too productive either.
    As for the Travon Martin case, the jury hasn't rendered a verdict on that one. It's doubtful they will agree with your characterization, but who knows? they could.

    Please you Americans! Your war is nearly over and the people's side has triumphed.

    All I am saying is, Give Peace A Chance!

    Feel the spirit! Don't let your hate consume you.
