Pakistan In Negotiations With Taliban

Pakistan In Negotiations With Taliban

Pakistani officials, who recently have grown tired of American military influence in their region, have begun preliminary peace talks with members of the Taliban, according to reports.

Pakistani Taliban members have waged war against the government of the country over the past several years, according to The Associated Press. Recently, the Taliban have increased the number of suicide bombings and attacks in the region, and many Pakistanis believe the increase is related to the government cooperating with the United States. It is believed that a peace deal between Pakistanis and the group could represent the best hope of ending years of fighting that has killed thousands of security personnel and civilians.

The AP reported that U.S. military officials may be wary of the peace deals, since they likely will create a vast safe haven in the country for terrorist planners. However, the United States recently sought a similar peace agreement with the Afghan Taliban, so public denouncement of the talks is unlikely. The Pakistani Taliban trained the Pakistani-American who carried out a failed car bombing in New York’s Times Square in 2010.

On Saturday, a Pakistani Taliban spokesman told the AP that the group has demanded the Pakistani government cut ties with the United States if it wants to make peace with the militants.

    Is that Obama is finally getting out of the country?

    It is their country and therefore their right! They might, however, consider what Thomas Jefferson said “A society that will trade a little liberty for a little order will lose both and deserve neither”! I realize that they do not wish to be American. I feel this applies not just to Americans but to mankind as a whole!
    In the end it is their rightful choice.

    Darn right they don’t want to be American. We need to get back to defending our country against attack and not making excuses for anyone that does attack the country. We also need to stop prosecuting our own military or border patrol for defending our country and themselves. I don’t advocate giving them carte blanche to mow down other people but they need to not be able to be prosecuted with dirt bag drug dealers as witnesses against them just so a prosecuter can chalk up another win. The liberal war against law enforcement is horrific.

    Another shocker … we just do not have a clue concerning that area of the world. We expect them to look at the world the way we do ….. HELLO … THEY DON’T!!!!! The sooner we understand that and get out of their business and keep our money at home where it belongs, the world will be a better place. Has anyone heard of covert operations … HELLO!!! These operations have gone on for centuries … that is the only way to handle this part of the world. When the Taliban attacks us, we retaliate …. swiftly, effectively, and quickly …. like hitting areas with drones and bombs … NO TROUPS, I WILL REPEAT THAT FOR THOSE IDIOTS IN WASHINGTON … NO TROUPS. If Pakistan or Afganistan or Irrisiblestan, or whoever harbors terroist, they are suspectable to our attack if we are attacked … otherwise run them out of your country. Oh my, this could escalate into a world war ….. well, friends, I would rather have a world war and get it over with one way or the other than to get killed one day at a time. A coward dies a thousand deaths, a hero dies once!!!!!!!!! This idea that our billions of dollars that we have given Pakistan / Afganistan / etc. in aid over the years has helped … where has it gotten us?????????? We are in no better a situation today than we were 20 years ago. The money can be replaced, but the lives of the thousands of our young men and women who were lead to believe that they were defending freedom when they were only pawns in a “game” played by our impotent politicians. I salute the military and those men and women who follow their orders ….. it’s the ignorant politicians that have made the world such a dangerous place. EVERY WAR SINCE WORLD WAR II HAS BEEN A POLITICIANS WAR AND ANYTHING POLITICIANS HAVE A HAND IN IS ALWAYS SO SCREWED UP.

    If we did a little mowing down at the onset of an attack by the terrorests ,there would be less of them to have battle with.

    • eddie47d

      Yes Lyle, Hitler used that theory against the Jews . If you “mow them down” our problems will be solved.

  • Marlene

    Sounds like the ultimate unholy alleance. This country should demand repayment of every penny it’s paid to aid these sand ants. Now, that would be a first!

  • Jan

    Time for DC to cut all aid to those so called friends of ours.
