So ALL THOSE PEOPLE MURDERED for a LIE was a HUGE WASTE of TIME, huh?
Now they want to TALK?!!!
Oh, oh, MY HEART!!! TEARS FLOWING!!!
O', Afghanis (and Pakistanis), can you EVER FORGIVE US!!!!!
Decisive military victory in Afghanistan is impossible and the Taliban may well be part of a long-term solution for the country, the senior British commander in Afghanistan was quoted as saying Sunday. The Sunday Times newspaper quoted Brig. Mark Carleton-Smith as saying that "we're not going to win this war." He also reportedly said a deal with the Taliban might be on the table.
On Saturday, the British government denied a claim that the U.K. believes the military campaign in Afghanistan is doomed to failure, after a French newspaper reported that London's ambassador to Kabul had said foreign troops added to the country's woes. France's weekly Le Canard Enchaine published on Wednesday what it said was a leaked French diplomatic cable recounting talks between Britain's Ambassador Sherard Cowper-Coles and a French official.
The newspaper said the French cable reported that Cowper-Coles had said Afghanistan might best be "governed by an acceptable dictator" and that the cable quoted him as saying foreign troops were adding to the country's problems by helping shore up a failing government in Kabul.

Cowper-Coles was quoted as saying that "the American strategy is destined to fail" and that the presence of foreign troops in Afghanistan was "part of the problem, not the solution." The prospect of a dictatorship "is the only realistic one and we must get public opinion ready to accept it," the report quotes the alleged cable as saying."
Are you effin' kidding me?
You know, this piece fits right into the puzzle, doesn't it?
