KABUL (Reuters) - The top U.S general in Afghanistan told NATO troops on Tuesday to prepare themselves to deal with “positive processes or negative consequences” as peace talks between the U.S. and the Taliban to end a 17-year war gain momentum.

Must be smoking some of that high power weed from southern Afghan. There will never be political peace in that rathole.  It is too fragmented and still in the dark ages.

The only time there will be peace in a religious war is when one side annihilates the other.............and anyone foolish enough to get between them.
