    Democrats Reverse U.S. Policy, Negotiate With Terrorists-Even the Taliban

    Article is here...

    The Right-Wing Underground: Democrats Reverse U.S. Policy, Negotiate With Terrorists-Even the Taliban

    Will this "change" of reverting back to the left's pre-9/11 "grovel, appease, and surrender" approach cause another 9/11?

    Negotiating with terrorists has been tried before, and I believe has always failed...100%.
    But, then there is this... Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.....
    The Taliban is not necessarily our enemy....nor do I put a lot of stock into "friends and enemies"...

    I don't think negotiations accessorized by a Stryker brigade and platoons of marines is neccessarily what I would call "grovel, appease, and surrender". But let's not let facts get in the way of your blogging enjoyment.

    I would say that it is possible. But then anything is possible given the right knowledge and materials. Weather it happens or not I don't know.

    Who's got their reservation to Afghanistan, I'm expecting it to be a tourist trap soon.

    Interesting. So you mean that General Petreaus's strategy in Iraq was "grovel, appease, and surrender?"

    One of the key successes was hiring a guy who used to try to kill Americans and get him to supply vast amounts of information that we later used to turn other insurgents as well as destroy those would would not turn.

    The hypocrisy here is absolutely amazing. When a Republican President follows the strategy of a nonpartisan General and wins, they give him all of the credit and praise the General. When a Democrat President does the exact same thing they accuse only the president of being a terrorist appeaser. And yet they ignore how the tactic was from the nonpartisan general.

    Yeah, how could Islamic fundamentalists who deliberately facilitated the murder of 3,000 Americans possibly be misconstrued as an enemy?

    A military presence at a negotiation with terrorists makes it something other than negotiating with terrorists? Um...sure.

    Besides, this act alone is not what I'm identifying as the return to the left's "grovel, appease, and surrender" strategy that so utterly failed us with al Qaida. It's Democrats:

    -ludicrously apologizing to Iran's Islamo-fascist psycho-in-chief Ahmadenijad for America's policies,

    -incompetently botching critical U.S. alliances in the War on Terror,

    -surrendering missile defenses as the racist lunatic regime they installed in Iran goes nuclear,

    -negotiating with and giving hundreds of millions of U.S. tax dollars to terrorists,

    -releasing al Qaida terrorists from Gitmo,

    -removing all U.S. pressure against the tyrannical Castro regime in Cuba,

    -re-inflicting deep military budget cuts,

    ...and so on.

    Thanks for the ad hominem BS though.

    This "Bush worked with the Sunnis" red herring was already addressed in the article. Learn how to read.

    There are some locally focused Taliban who have no interest in global politics and some Taliban who are part of the global Islamist threat.

    The idea is to get these two factions to fight each other.
