    Well, the US has negotiated with the Soviet Union and Japan today is an ally. Problem is islime teaches that deception and lying in the way of allah is a virtue. Also, the Russians were equally fearful of death whereas muslimes worship death

    Only the GOP are allowed to kiss up with the Taliban.

    Rogue Statesman

    by R. Scott Moxley

    "[Rohrabacher] says the Taliban are devout traditionalists¬ónot terrorists or revolutionaries. He believes a Taliban takeover [of Afghanistan] would be a positive development."

    ... "Listen! Hold on!" said Rohrabacher. "I am a bigger expert on Afghanistan than any member of Congress." ...

    A November/December 1996 article in Washington Report on Middle East Affairs reported, "The potential rise of power of the Taliban does not alarm Rohrabacher" because the congressman believes the "Taliban could provide stability in an area where chaos was creating a real threat to the U.S." Later in the article, Rohrabacher claimed that:

    Taliban leaders are "not terrorists or revolutionaries."

    Media reports documenting the Taliban’s harsh, radical beliefs were "nonsense."

    The Taliban would develop a "disciplined, moral society" that did not harbor terrorists.

    The Taliban posed no threat to the U.S.

    So much for the long standing policy of not negotiating with terrorists.
    More concerning is how do you hold a rogue organization without borders accountable?

    Because they have a large political influence in Afghanistan.

    The Taliban need to be part of any government or political solution for that countries future. :cool:

    It's not going to work, the Taliban are not going to honor any agreements that come out of this anyways.

    Why would they? they will just say and promise whatever they have to so US Troops can leave the country and they can start running things the way they used to, thats what I would do if I were them.

    The degenerate pedophile-worshipping muhammadan invaded Afghanistan when it was a Buddhist country and turned it into another muslime shithole like every other muslime shithole.

    Go back to arabia where you trash came from
