    Thumbs up U.S. Envoy Seeks Peace Deal With Taliban By 2019 Amidst Direct Talks

    The U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan has said he hopes to strike a final peace deal with the Taliban by April of 2019, according to Reuters citing local media reports.
    U.S. envoy Zalmay Khalilzad led three days of talks between the United States, the Taliban and the Afghan government in Qatar where the Taliban has a political office, the culmination of months of attempted unprecedented face-to-face sit down dialogue between American officials and the Islamist insurgent group's representatives.
    Khalilzad told reporters over the weekend that he hopes “a peace deal is reached before April 20 next year”, when Afghanistan is planning to hold a presidential election. While six months is ambitious and a tad optimistic, it appears more about creating the conditions for a final politically face-saving American exit from the now approaching two decade long quagmire.

    Trying to understand rationale behind this schedule, why not 2029... or more importantly why wasn't this done in 2009?

    Who's responsible of past decades lives, limbs, dollars spent on this costly exercise if in the end we were to "seek peace deal" with Islamist Jihadi militants who observe no gun controls?
