    This should have been done years ago as was suggested by sane & inteligent people. getting rid of the taliban is like getting rid of all of the Rs and Ds in this country and expecting to do it without having some oppisition. if the taliban and al qaeda were separated logically like they should have been from the beginning this war could have been over long ago

    We have been cow-towing to the "moderate" taliban for a long time now. The reconciliation program was up and running in '05.

    I wouldn't put much stock in it.

    How do you determine who is a moderate in an extremist organization?

    More importantly, why does everyone seem to presume their politics is exactly like ours.

    just because you are in the taliban doesn't mean you are an extremist. the attitude you have is one of the main reasons we are having trouble winning over any people except those politically connected to our money flow.

    again you don't understand what the taliban is and what their goals are. please stay out of the discussion as your post shows how ridiculously uninformed you are.

    I edited the your pics a bit so they don't widen the hell out of the page.
