More and more we are choosing to side with the Taliban/Al Qaeda axis.

The Obama administration expects to move ahead with plans to meet with Taliban representatives in the next few days, despite a still-simmering dispute with Afghan President Hamid Karzai over the negotiations that led him Wednesday to suspend separate talks over a key U.S.-Afghan security pact.

Administration officials, including Secretary of State John F. Kerry, spent much of Wednesday scrambling to defuse Karzai’s anger over the Taliban’s news conference on Tuesday, during which the insurgents announced that they would open an office in Qatar, raised their flag and stood under a banner reading the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan” — the name they used when they ruled Afghanistan a decade ago — despite written U.S. promises that such a move would not be allowed.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.
