    Trump will have to stop bombing the sh1t out of them first and he won't stop so its unlikely to hold.

    It appears a lot of effort has been put into this by Zalmay Kahlilzad and Mark Esper and others . I hope it goes through.

    A 'reduction of violence' is not a ceasefire. I would not trust Epser or Pompeo to adhere to it if I were the taliban. Neocons have a history of double crossing.

    Well , that goes without saying . You cannot trust the Taliban , afghan govt or the US . The Taliban just wants to go back to the 7th century , the afghan govt does not want to be that poor and the US has no idea what it is doing . No trust on the table , just stop shooting for awhile.

    The neocons will never allow it. There is only talk of a reduction of troops to 8600 or so.The taliban want all of them out so the whole thing will fail again.

    I think the Taliban may agree to 8600 if there footprint is reduced to areas they do not control . Hopefully there will also be a withdrawal date set for those . It is a 33 percent reduction .

    The problem is that the hardliners in the taliban will still continue to fight until their all gone..

    It will be the last chance to get out under 20 years . If trump were to lose there will be no other chances for another decade .

    Your prayers are requested for the success of the deal .

    So I guess the Taliban have decided to allow poppy production going forward?

    Votes for Dem pres in primary and general elections will be votes to stay in Afghanistan another decade . As simple as that . Very disappointing people here are participating in that but , hey , humans are just a murderous species .

    In order to keep things neutral I would have suggested that be sub contracted to a third party .

    "Peace deal" only calls for one week of "reduced violence"- not even a full cease-fire.

    This deal is permanent to be approved by months end . The probationary period was set as conditional prior to this deal to see if the Taliban can resist killing for a few days .

    The best and most well funded army in the world can't beat the ragheads who have AK-47's.

    Why is that ?

    Most are not likely to win guerilla war on others home turf . A standing army is meant to engage other standing armies .

    That's because we're not trying to win the war. We're trying to prolong it on taxpayers dime.

    That's just the first phase, they will all leave.

    I'll Celebrate with some Afghani Hash.. if it is ever available again..

    Haven't seen any since Russia invaded.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.
