So, after nearly two decades of war, we’re going to give back Afghanistan to the people we stole it from.
It’s poetic justice. No actually it isn’t. It’s just stupid.
The Taliban said on Wednesday they were close to an agreement with U.S. officials on a deal that would see U.S. forces withdraw from Afghanistan in exchange for a Taliban promise the country would not become a haven for international militants.
Negotiations over how to end the 18-year war in Afghanistan have been held in Qatar’s capital, Doha, since late last year. The ninth round of talks began last week.
“We hope to have good news soon for our Muslim, independence seeking nation,” said Suhail Shaheen, a spokesman for the Taliban’s political office in Doha.
U.S. officials engaged in talks with the Taliban in Doha were not immediately available for comment.
Two sources with knowledge of the negotiations said the U.S. special representative for Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, who has been leading the talks, is scheduled to be in Kabul to brief President Ashraf Ghani about the agreement.
Why did we fight this war?
Was it the Jews again?
I hope so.
So that the families of the 2500ish US soldiers who died in this war can rest easy knowing that their lads died in the name of God’s Chosen People.
