Progress toward peace is being made!
Taliban Opens Office for Talks with US, Afghan Government

And the stated purpose of this:

“One, to reach understanding and initiate talks with countries of the world for the purpose of improving relations with them; two, to support a political and peaceful solution, which [would] include [the] end of the occupation of Afghanistan and establishment of an independent Islamic system…; three, to hold meetings with the Afghans as times may demand,” he said.

The people of Afghanistan deserve peace and it appears that the Taliban is more than ready to bring it. There is little doubt that theirs is the popular movement the people have been waiting for.

Now, if they would stop throwing acid in the faces of little girls who want to go to school, and other such atrocities, then perhaps their peace overtures might be believable.

This is just one of the pitfalls of religion. Similar to the child abuse of indoctrination children into the kristyun religion at an age where they are incapable of making their own decisions. In any case, a small price to pay for peace and security according to the people who are choosing the Taliban over the others.

Then, on the other hand, it could be that those kind of stories are US demonizing propaganda stories and not much more. In any case, the line about the US being there to help the little girls to go to school, was sort of abandoned a long time ago.

Or: a face full of acid is better than a body full of US made bullets!

It's neither the Christians nor the USA who is shooting girls for daring to go to school.

LONDON – Just five months after she was shot in the head by the Taliban in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, apparently for defying a ban on girls' education, Malala Yousafzai returned to school, this time in the safer confines of central England.

You mean like decapitating 10-year old boys as spies?

Why do Americans hate the idea of peace talks so much? And as for brutality toward a little girl, how is this so much more important that killing their own doctors for aiding a woman to have an abortion? Or a Hispanic man shooting a black man in cold blood for walking home with a package of skittles as his only weapon?

I don't think Americans hate the idea of peace talks. I do think that if they aren't naive, credulous fools, they'll take any promises made by the Taliban for exactly what they are: Lies justifiable because they're being made to infidels.

I don't think Americans hate the idea of peace talks if those talks can be productive.

Peace talks with nutters who bomb abortion clinics wouldn't be too productive either.
As for the Travon Martin case, the jury hasn't rendered a verdict on that one. It's doubtful they will agree with your characterization, but who knows? they could.

Well, so much for taking this thread seriously now that lyrics in large font substitute for thinking.

The intention was to let lyrics substitute for hate toward the Taliban. And after all, it wasn't them that were responsible for the deaths of so many innocent women and children in Afghanistan was it.

Let the hate go and hope for peace talks.

By "racists", do you mean people who disagree with those who believe that girls must be kept out of school by force, women may not leave home without being covered head to toe and accompanied by a male relative, and that killing people who don't believe as they do is totally justified?
