Official says US, Taliban reach Afghan truce agreement
https://apnews.com/fa41245d47d48332b10c8aeadcd6cb73


quote:

MUNICH (AP) — A senior U.S. official said Friday the United States and the Taliban have reached a truce agreement that will take effect “very soon” and could lead to withdrawals of American troops from Afghanistan.

The official said the agreement for a seven-day “reduction in violence” to be followed by the start of all-Afghan peace talks within 10 days is “very specific” and covers the entire country including Afghan forces.

The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss details ahead of an official announcement.

The developments come as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Mark Esper met Friday in Munich with Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani. They spoke on the sidelines of an international security forum in Munich.

How many goat wives did we agree to provide them with?

What's the O/U on how long it will last? A month? 2 months? 3 hours?

I expect the media to be suddenly consumed with overwhelming concern about girls being able to go to school and the like.

The Taliban will eventually topple the government in Kabul.

We should still leave though.

Its a 7 day cease fire and if it works then we pull the trigger but if it doesn't then Trump will take out some senior Taliban families to force them back in.

They will topple it with or without blood.

Only way to prevent it is to stay and prop it up for the next 50+ years.

Maybe Congress will pass another law that prevents Trump from using any military action in Afghanistan.

Expect Bill Kristol, John Bolton, Jennifer Rubin and the rest of the neocons to be on every cable network urging us to stay another years. And the left will eat it up.

If they want to live in the 5th Century, so be it. But this time, if they host camps for people that hit us, we should not give them what everyone else that ever dealt with them did, soldiers that went in and gave them opponents for jihad.

We should nuke the place to glass. Destroy it and send them all to Hell.

They probably will. A great reason why this war should have been ended 18 years ago.

Yep.

We’re just flushing American lives and money down the toilet by staying there.

We don't need some phony agreement to get out of that shithole that will never hold up in the long run.

We could pull everyone and all of our resources out of Afghanistan and the country would look completely the same as it does today in a year from now or even 5 years from now.

There is no victory to be had in Afghanistan and the politicians in the Pentagon keep lying to us about that. That must stop now.

Get out of that shithole. Now.
