United States Backs Karzai's Offer To Talk To Taliban

"The deputy head of the European and Eurasian Affairs office at the State Department, Kurt Volker, said Washington welcomed President Hamid Karzai's bid to sit down with radical Afghan groups, as long as they rejected violence.
"Those who formerly were fighters who want to return to society ought to be able to do so," Volker told reporters during a visit to Berlin."

So ... guess what ... even the war mongers in the USA State Department think that it is time to talk to the Taliban.

So can we get all of the Canadian right wing extremists at the Blogging Tories to shut the hell up! We don't want to hear any more of the Conservative Party's policy for perpetual war!


The US, Canada, Israel and many others always claim that ther should be no negotiation with terrorists. Witness the recent howling against South Korea which successfully rescued a number of its citizens.
Now we have Karzai not only trying to negotiate with the Taliban but offering them posts in his government. And the US praises him. What total hypocrisy.
Of course what Karzai wants to do is splite the Taliban. The main body will not negotiate until all foreign troops are withdrawn--not aid by the way. But Karzai could not allow that nor the US. Karzai depends upon those troops and he even has foreign private security guards. You can see them in dark glasses in the photo ops.
