Negotiate with the “Taliban”?

September 2, 2009

interesting opinions offered on the question of negotiations. I think a better question is not whether to negotiate, negotiations are a guaranteed, but rather with which factions and groups within the Taliban to negotiate with.

Taliban, while majority Pashtun, comprises many different groups, clans, ideologies and reasons to fight. The real question is which tribes and sub-tribes are negotiable and which are hardcore and are irreconcilable.
