NYT: The Taliban have offered the US authorities to sit at the negotiating table

25
In an american newspaper The New York Times a material is published in which it is allegedly approved of the proposal of the Taliban to enter the negotiation process with the United States. The report stated that representatives of the political wing of the Taliban movement (* terrorist group, banned in the Russian Federation) called on the US administration to "start a dialogue in order to stop the 17-year bloodshed in Afghanistan."


The submission says that the Taliban offer talks with the United States on the “peace channel” and without “trying to exert pressure”. At the same time, the Taliban, in their address, declare that they represent the interests of the overwhelming majority of the population of Afghanistan.

NYT: The Taliban have offered the US authorities to sit at the negotiating table


It should be noted that 1 March in Kabul begins a meeting of regional leaders. At the same time, there is no evidence that representatives of the so-called Taliban political wing are invited to the meeting *.

Recall that earlier, US President Donald Trump decided to transfer to Afghanistan additional military forces in the number of 4-x military personnel. About 800 the US military last week already arrived in Afghanistan, where they were met by the commander of the combined NATO contingent.

Some time ago, the former president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, accused the United States of conducting secret talks with the Taliban, not devoting the leadership of the Islamic Republic to them.

        I’ll venture to suggest: the gas pipeline from Turkmenistan through Pakistan to India began to be built the other day. The topic of what-protection? Again, American agronomists ... wink

            A couple of years before the American invasion of Afghanistan, a large gas field was discovered in Turkmenistan, 1/3 in Afghanistan (I saw a map on TV news). The Italians wiped away the Amerza, then infa about 120 Lyamas for guarding the pipeline, then one day the American staff dumped and threw everything. The locals, by inertia, were still for weeks at the office, and then the Amerz invasion.
            And the concentration of 8 thousand ISIS contingent, no matter how they now call themselves, in the north of Afghanistan + an additional 4 thousand contingents of Amerz, everything is going to aggravate the situation in Central Asia. How quickly the gas pipeline will be built, wait and see, but Qatar and the Saudis may not like this idea. So there will be some other barmalei on the Qatari suction. winked

              Turkmens, carpenter sitting on Chinese loans ... China, just do not let go ...
              There is an idea that the Amerzians will "stagger" Pakistan ... Oh, too much, he made friends with China ... At the same time, you can drag the Indians ... For them, those who are those enemies ...

      We found with whom to sit at the negotiating table .. The Taliban should be ashamed .. this is not a smart move ... but it is clear that they understand that the United States will bring other barmales to them now ..

        What can they negotiate about? Taliban for establishing Sharia in Afghanistan, Americans for secular authorities.
        The United States, by building up the group (even if it was up to 20 thousand; it was 14 tons), they really will not achieve anything militarily. So what can they talk about. A truce between them, so that the Taliban engage in Pakistan, and the United States with its barmaley Iran? Or maybe Central Asia?
        Assumptions and fortune-tellers can be engaged for a long time. But the fact is that it is a truce, which each side can use for its own purposes. It is clear that the states on the turntables are transferring or supplying someone - most likely their Barmley from BV. What are they preparing for? It seems to me that definitely not against the fight against the Taliban. hi

          Turkmenistan ... The most problematic place is the junction of borders with Uzbek and Afghan ...
          And perhaps, Sinzian-Ugur, that China would have something to do ... But Kyrgyzstan needs to do this, "shake" ...

            Also an option, especially since there is gas. But the problem is in the water and will be for every oasis butting. Still, you won’t hide in the desert. Another thing is mountains. For Turkmen, well, we, China will immediately fit.
            China has a small border with Afghanistan, but there the Chinese carry out prevention. Rumor has it that the Chinese especially religious Uighurs from the countryside closed up in the camps and Mao’s teachings are forced to teach, teeth are shaved. hi

    Probably the Taliban will promise the mattresses a green corridor for drug trafficking and the inviolability of plantations if the stripes stop hanging between their legs ...

      This will be bad, and there is an opinion that they will agree

        because there is an opinion that they will agree

        The probability is very high. The Taliban need relative peace in order to crush under themselves all possible forces, including the remains of the IG. Then they will mate with the mattresses again.

    called on the US administration to “start a dialogue to end the 17-year bloodshed

    called - it means forced to sit at the negotiating table!

    The Taliban with a negotiating position is not very.
    First you need to cut out a couple of Amer’s garrisons, pinch patrols, and turn down another turntable.
    Then you can talk.
    And so they can only whisper with them.

      First you need to cut out a couple of Amer’s garrisons, pinch patrols, and turn down another turntable.
      So that's why they propose to talk (if this is true) that there was an obvious agreement earlier - we (the Americans) do not bother you too much, you (the Taliban) do not bother us too much. Therefore, the Americans almost calmly engaged in self-protection and plantation control.

    Well, if NYT said, then everything is exactly the opposite. It is the Americans and the Taliban who are trying to divide the spheres of influence in drug trafficking. In PMCs in Afghanistan, a large understatement (they often die), local indigenous people are already being recruited there. The quality of drug trafficking management is rapidly declining, and competition is growing. It's time to move on to cartel conspiracy. The obvious step.

    If you think about it, what can the Taliban offer the Americans?
    Do not smash their caravans with drugs, go to the service of the Americans, but in any case it’s just bad for the Taliban. They will simply be redirected to a neighbor of Russia, but Afghanistan will not be peaceful, and the Americans will not offer another way

    We need to help the Taliban with arms, as the United States helped them against the USSR. Then, I think, the US will negotiate faster.

    Decided to discuss eye-to-eye plans?
