    But they are more than willing to harbor those that would do us harm. And thier human rights atrocities alone should give one pause to giving them an equal seat at the discussion table.,

    That's the key. They hope to maybe get them to fight each other.

    I believe at this time in history, negotiating and allying oursselves with savages like these is not the best move.

    I'm with you in spirit but the practicalities of the situation dictate that we will NEVER make Afghanistan a warm and fuzzy place for Americans. Sharia law is as deeply entrenched there as anywhere on Earth. We need to define what victory means in that context.

    FYI: Obama signaled this change in early December.

    PRES.-ELECT OBAMA: Right. Well, I, I think that we do have to be mindful of the history of Afghanistan. It is tough territory. And there's a fierce independence in Afghanistan, and if the perception is that we are there simply to impose ourselves in a long-term occupation, that's not going to work in Afghanistan. By the way, that's not going to work in Iraq either. There are very few countries that welcome long-term occupations by foreign powers. But Afghanistan has shown that they are fiercely resistant to that. We're going to have to convince the Afghan people that we're not interested in dictating what happens in Afghanistan. What we are interested in is making sure that Afghanistan cannot be used as a base for launching terrorist attacks. And as long as al-Qaeda and the Taliban, working in concert with al-Qaeda, threaten directly the United States and are engaged in mayhem, then we've got to take action. And, and that very limited goal of making sure that that doesn't happen, I think, can serve as the basis for effective cooperation with the Afghan people.

    Yes we should talk to SOME of the Taliban. We think that all Taliban members are radical extremists, while certainly many are, there are other members who joined because they wanted money and to keep their heads. Those are the Taliban members we should talk to because we might actually get something done with them. But talking to the extreme parts of the Taliban is pointless and we will just waste time.

    And now give them power. Broaden their base. Make it so Taliban is the base of Palestine.. Errr.. wait.. I mean.... Afghanistan. Then Israel... Err.. wait.. I mean America attacks the problem which just happens to be the whole country after you let them broaden.

    So, are you comparing Obama to a 6 year old or just his executive experience? Honey, anyone coulkd have beaten the GOP last year thanks to the MSM & President Bush's popularity rating.

    Topic? Yeah O man, talking to the Taliban, reaching out to Cuba, snubbing Great Britain. What a diplomatic whiz kid we've got in the White House.
