So the United States wants the Taliban to agree to a ceasefire in Afghanistan. Isn’t that special.
Politico reported a couple of days ago that a peace agreement is what America is seeking, but first the Taliban must agree to a ceasefire.
Apparently, long defunct peace talks began again after president Trump made his surprise stop in November to see the troops in Afghanistan.
It’s my opinion that Trump really wants a deal with the Taliban in order to fulfill his promise to wind down the endless wars and American presence all over the world. And for Trump, it’s not just some hollow political slogan – “bring our boys (and girls) home.” He really means it.
It’s a laudable goal to be sure. One I agree with – particularly regarding Afghanistan.
