US Agrees Deal With Taliban It Could Have Had in 2001

Non-binding 'roadmap to peace' commits the US to a withdrawal, the Taliban to snuff out Al-Qaeda and ISIS for the US

The Taliban also accept to enter into talks with the US-organized Kabul government on power-sharing: that is something they wouldn’t have accepted in September 2001, but something they could not even dream of when their leaders including Mullah Omar in December 2001 accepted to disband

The latest round of talks between the US and the Taliban have ended with what is being called a “roadmap to peace” for Afghanistan. The agreement is non-binding, but points toward a formal agreement being not far down the road.

The talks effectively have an agreement on the US withdrawal and the Taliban fighting against ISIS and al-Qaeda, and commits both sides to a deal to end civilian casualties and negotiate with the Afghan government on power-sharing.

Zalmay Khalilzad, the head US negotiator, is expressing hopes that the deal will ultimately be finalized by September 1. This would be the day for signing the deal, though when everything would be implemented is still unclear.

A final deal is expected to both put a timeline to everything, and provide some mechanism of international guarantors for the peace deal, ending 18 years of US-led occupation of Afghanistan.

I suppose if the Taliban agree to be custodians of the opium poppy fields and provide access to mineral sites, that would accomplish everything America wanted.

I hope the Taliban appreciates the history with which other countries have had in negotiating with Americans.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the Supreme leader of the Islamic Republic, in
his recent meeting with the Japanese prime minister, shrewdly pointed
out that the very fact that some like Trump can become president of the
United States, is an indication of its decline.

That is such an insightful statement.

Trump is a glorious buffon, who’s pride and arrogance is only surpassed by his immeasurable ignorance.

He claims to want to make “America great again”, yet he has spent
most of his time in office pursuing a Israel firster agenda, that for
the most part runs counter to core US interests.

Trump’s pick for US ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, acts as if
he is a part of the Israel government, and spends his time promoting
policies that are good for Israel, but undermines the interests of the
country that he claims to represent.

When he went tunneling under Palestinians homes in East Jerusalem recently, the State Department was blindsided.

Trump might be good for Israel, but he is bad for America.

Yes but as an USA political prostitute once said, “sure it’s a s#itty little war, but it is the only war we have right now!”.

the US will agree to withdrew if the Taliban agrees to fight the Zionist/US creation proxies lol
I have a feeling the Taliban dont trust the US and they will promise them this fight as long as the US goes home but actually will not fight cause Russia and Iran will take care of them

This should shut the mouths of those ignorant morons (like Tim Ryan) who maintain that the Taliban protect ISIS, al Qaeda, and participated in 9/11. Iran is also NO friend of al Qaeda.
