    The Taliban used doublespeak, Mr. High Gravity, I'm sad to say. Read further:

    They want nothing to do with negotiations. It's all about revenge now. Our failure was to leave them alone. Their revenge is to take advantage of stupidity on the part of NATO forces to think they are sincere in wanting any part of peace. They proved it Saturday.

    Their talk of peace is through the gravel in their mouths.

    Oh I agree with you, the Taliban don't want peace they want to go back to the way they were doing things before we got there. Besides even if they did come to some sort of power sharing agreement with the Afghan government as soon as US forces leave they will not follow it anyways.

    Why do I have this feeling we will have to stay there as long as we've stayed in Germany?

    I don't think so, the Germans aren't lobbing missiles at us and shooting down our helicopters from the sky. Plus the Germans don't actually mind having us around they get alot of money from the Miltary personnel on those bases, the Afghans are a totally different situation they wouldnt piss on us if we were on fire.

    I don't think so. We just brought back 30 of our finest in Pine boxes from Afghanistan's Talaban pissing a little mortar at one of our helicopters that was on a rescue mission and loaded with Navy Seals. There's more of that piss and vinegar where it came from.

    Well if we are going to stay in Afghanistan it is always going to be on a combat footing, it will not be like Germany where we are welcome and our troops are relatively safe, this Afghanistan thing is going to be the longest war we ever fought.
