Don't let Obama anywhere near any Taliban. He'll be apologizing up and down for all the war and fighting that our evil military has been doing to them.

Peace talks should always be on the table. Will they work with the Taliban? Probably not!

We have been there since WWII, first to keep Russia from acquiring their resources from WWII then after that during the long Cold War. One day their resources will be used up and we will leave there forever. There is always talk of the medical values our country derives from their poppy plantations, our government is the largest purchaser of the opium or whatever they make from poppies to be used in many medicines in this country. And the trade routes that get the drugs here also need to be protected from Pakistan and other poor countries who want in on the money. That will always be an issue.

Hey Minot Daily "News" - why the quotation marks? If you've been outside the country (Canada and Mexico really do not count) you'd gain an appreciation for just how unfavorably the US can be viewed. I believe we have an obligation to foster peace with talks at a table vs putting "a boot in your a--".

The US talked to them when they were the Freedom Fighters back when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan and remained there for 10 years until the Soviets were so wore down from fighting the Freedom Fighters, they gave up and went home.
The US supplied Stinger missiles to the Taliban and the Soviets suffered heavy losses of military aircraft.
But that was then and it is now now, so it is probably better to fight the Taliban instead of arm them, but that's what we're doing in Syria, so peace talks are just that, talk.
War is good business, so it will just shift to Syria.
Just as long as it costs you more in taxes via depletion of the US Treasury and US blood, you really shouldn't mind at all if the wars across the globe continue.
I guess you can hold peace talks, but there won't be any peace at all.
War is Peace and the orwellian future is now, we are there.
You're being watched by drone too!
Truth is Lies. The Taliban and the US peace talks will be all lies.

I find it odd that we the United States run around from Country to Country, arming them with whatever thet need, guns and all. But, Obama wants to take guns away from American Citizens.

I thought when your getting audited by the IRS, and pleading ignorant, doesn't count. But, they, the IRS and government plead it now.
Keep telling yourself that, Veritas. I am sure Obama will get everything you want. So far, I still have everything I want. It hasn't been totally ripped out of my hands. You voted for Obama, I did not. Happy you are so well invested and doing well. But yet you keep trying to make people feel bad. So who is unhappy, you or me?

Veritas, tell me why exactly why you say that. Or think that. Or keep telling people that comment, I threw a cigarette in a cops face, when I only threw it out the window. And then got picked up. YOU have lied about me. So what makes you so unhappy Veritas to make another person hate another on you opinion only.
