Well... really don't know what to say about this farce. Let me exercise my intuitive powers... we go to the table with peace talks... the Taliban leadership waiver and waffle until finally they "accept" terms of the BHO peace treaty. Everything is declared a victory and the Taliban are defeated. The second the last troop flies out of the country, a huge Civil War starts AGAIN and the Taliban go right back to their old ways. But it's ok, we've lost Brothers and friends in that shithole...but we'll all pretend everything is ok and skip hand in hand through the valley of denial.

But the military worries things are moving too fast, and intelligence agencies offered a gloomy prognosis in their latest Afghanistan report.
Several current and former U.S. officials said the most substantive give-and-take to date between U.S. and Taliban negotiators could happen in the next week, with the goal of establishing what the U.S. calls confidence-building measures -- specific steps that the U.S. and the insurgents agree to take ahead of formal talks. Those talks, if they ever take place, would include the United States, the Taliban and the Afghan government of President Hamid Karzai, a senior US official said.
