Maybe once the Republicans win the next election they can approach the Taliban.

"Look, we're all extremists here. You hate gays? WE hate gays? You love shootin' guns? WE love shootin' guns! You think women need to know their place? Hey! So do we! People of a different race frighten and confuse you? Guess what.... Yup! Us too! So, c'mon, even though you believe in some funny Muhammed-y stuff and haven't discovered Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Amen Amen Amen, we can all get along, right? We want the same things, you just have some silly beliefs about a big black cube thing. We can overlook that. Hey, by the way, what do you think about Mexicans? We might have a job for you."

In November when Obama is re-elected all of this will magically straighten itself out and we'll all be good.
No worries.
Everyone in the military will come home in 2014, we can draw down U.S. forces overall and ever thing will be honkey-dorey in the Middle East.

I can't imagine anyone held any true hope of negotiating peace with the Taliban, but I'm glad it was attempted. I understand the necessities of war, but that doesn't mean peace isn't worth pursuing, even with a group like the Taliban.
