Taliban Signal Readiness for Peace Talks


BREAKING NEWS Tuesday, June 18, 2013 10:31 AM EDT

In a potentially groundbreaking move, the Taliban announced on Tuesday they were prepared to take the first step towards peace negotiations with the Afghanistan government after 12 years of war.
The announcement came in Doha, the capital of Qatar, where negotiations have been underway for more than two years with a range of international participants to attempt start peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government.

Yeah, if *we* are all on the same page, I don't think they will be pulling the wool over anyone else's eyes.

I sure hope not anyway.

While we’re over there stocking Syrian Rebels with weapons, we might as well re-stock the Taliban.

Who says we aren't?  Either way, I'd venture a guess that these "arms" end up in the wrong hands sooner rather than later.
