News Taliban says no to surge.

    Taliban says "no" to surge.

    Who would have thought that the Taliban would say no to the US troop surge!

    If some of you don't know, the US is looking to end the war peacefully with the Taliban by negotiating a peace agreement.
    The US promptly served a nice can of STFU to the Taliban after this one which is a blessing.

    Are we going to go the way of Russia in the 80s and run away with our tail between our legs? The situation in A-stan is so F***** right now more troops isn't going to help immensely, and leaving out right isnt going to help either.

    What would be your exit strategy?

    As far as I can see, the taliban will play nice with the US until it gets what it wants, and revert back to its old ways knowing that the US wont come back. The Taliban might also get rid of AQ, which would help the US in the long run because the Taliban would want complete and utter political control.

    Can we really trust the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan to control the situation when we are gone? They sure are some slippery countries, especially Pakistan, who just so happens to hate our little buddies on the Med.

    So as I asked earlier. How do you see the US exiting Afghanistan?
