Sources: Taliban split with al Qaeda, seek peace

The talks — the first of their kind aimed at resolving the lengthy conflict in Afghanistan — mark a significant move by the Saudi leadership to take a direct role in Afghanistan, hosting delegates who have until recently been their enemies.

They also mark a sidestepping of key “war on terror” ally Pakistan, frequently accused of not doing enough to tackle militants sheltering on its territory, which has previously been a conduit for talks between the Saudis and Afghanistan.  >>>>>

This story actually legitimizes the notion that Al-Qaeda and the Taliban had a marriage.  In effect, there is no al-Qaeda.  There is merely a response to an invasion, ethnic cleansing, torture and other horrors against humanity.  These very same people who have been defending their own homeland, have been conveniently lumped together to be identified by the West as Al-Qaeda.

The Taliban, or the government of Afghanistan at the time of that country’s invasion and occupation, are a group of people whom have been focusing internally – and simply desire to live out their own culture, under their own sovereignty.

The continued connection between the two groups, with Osama bin Laden purported to be acting as liaison, is something that the West needs in order to continue its marching orders on the War on Terror.  Interestingly enough, Pakistan and Afghanistan are commencing to ‘flip-flop’ on roles that neither wanted to take on, regardless of which side of the spectrum they fall on.

    If youre gunna copy and paste your postings on other people’s sites, at least make it readable, rather than rambling. I get the point, you think America is evil. THey’re invaders. They should leave everyone alone. If that’s not your point then you REALLY need to work on the writing. Something else about India and Pakistan too. Didn’t catch that part.

    Wozzle – on the Afghanistan and Pakistan part (not India), I was trying to point out the Pakistan was once our ally, soon to be our enemy; while Afghanistan was once our enemy, soon to be an ally. No matter how you cut it; both countries will lose in the venture associated with the U.S. — whether enemy or ally.
