The main correspondent of UN to Afghanistan, Kai Eide, defended that leaders of Taliban are removed terrorists' list of the entity. The objective is to facilitate the "dialogue" with those leaders. The boss of the forces of Otan in Afghanistan, general Stanley McChrystal, and the boss of the Central Command of the USA, general David Petraeus, they also spoke in negotiation.
The mere possibility that the leaders of that Islamic group are "forgiven" somehow and pass to be treated as dialogue partners shows that Taliban WON THE WAR. Even the fucking President of the USA, Barracks Obama, already suggested, in other opportunity, that could try to negotiate with to guerrilla whose religious campaign put Afghanistan in the Stone Age.
It was already the time in that western leaders, like Churchill, didn't accept other thing except the enemy's unconditional surrender. The logic of Obama and their generals are evident: better a peace negotiated now than a more humiliating defeat in the future.
Then I ask: does honorable defeat exist? I think no and I will commemorate this new American humiliation a lot. If "los gringos" don't get nor to win a group of primitive ragged what credibility they deserve?
Will Latin America give the mercy punch in the soft belly of the American Empire? We will see... we will see.
