Will U.S. peace talks with the Taliban stabilize Afghanistan?

Yes. The only way to end warfare in Afghanistan is through a negotiated peace with the Taliban.

Temporarily. The Taliban may accept U.S. conditions for a while, but it will eventually resume support of terrorism.
8% (104 votes)
Doubtful. The Taliban would have to find a way to co-exist with the current Afghan government, and that’s not likely.
29% (380 votes)
No way. Any concession to the Taliban is a step toward deeper instability in the region.

I suppose if you define stabilize as surrendering to the idea that any negotiated settlement will result in the installation of Islamo-Fascism and the recreation of terrorist training camps in Afghanistan then I must agree. However, this "stabilization" will be seen as an Islamist victory and, in the eyes of the world, an admission by this nation that we place absolutely no value on the sacrifice of our military. It also reinforces the global opinion that the US, while obviously capable of breaking everything in sight as soon as its military arrives, is incapable of successfully completing a war since WWII.

The Taliban, nor Al-Qaeda, gives a Tinker's Dam for these, so-called Peace Talks.
Muslims have been attacking Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and anyone available, since the Crusades in 1096.
Islam is a violent, cruel religion of murder and the rape of children.
