All that death for nothing
McCully backs Taliban peace talks
The New Zealand Government has swung in behind a shock new move to start peace talks with the Taliban. Speaking to Fairfax Media from London this morning, Foreign Minister Murray McCully said the strategy announced by the Afghan Government was "sound". The move was revealed after a 70 nation summit on the war-torn nation held in London on Thursday (local time). A spokesman for Afghan President Hamid Karzai told AFP the Taliban would "definitely'' be invited to a peace jirga - a traditional reconciliation process for Afghans.
What a surprise, all that big tough guy talk about freedom and democracy and stopping terrorism and what's Muzza's solution? Let's bribe the Taliban. There was never a military solution to this madness, we should never have sent the SAS back in, Karzai is corrupt, how many civilians have we killed for this bullshit?
This is what we are risking NZ lives for? What a joke, how much NZ taxpayer money will Muzza commit to bribe the Taliban with? Freedom and Democracy never tasted so bitter.
