Is Peace Really in the Air in Afghanistan?

There's something wafting in the air in Afghanistan, and for once it's not the smell of detritus, diesel or cordite. People - rivals, even enemies -- are talking about peace. Not just talks about talks - those have been going on and off for years.

We'll have to wait and see. Things can turn on a dime.

I'm not even being cautiously optimistic. I don't trust the parties involved; what makes these men "former Taliban militants"? Too many years of hate, distrust, cruelty, distruction, murder, to think there has been a change in mind set.

Allan, I hope you are wrong, but this is most certainly a wait and see moment.

Thank you Carrie. Wouldn't this be wonderful...but I also think it is a wait and see moment.

Afghanistan does not want peace, ask the British. Lets get out of there and let them fight it out between themselves, the best way to end terrorism. Just don't sell them any weapons that can be used against us. But I do pity their women. Islam is so evil.
