"All the Shura (consultation) members have received the draft and they are reading it carefully, yet no go-ahead signal has been given to the Taliban negotiating team in Doha," the Taliban official said.

How is that when only 38% of Afghanis can read?

Hope they tie all aid to over 90% female attendance at school until at least age 15.

Ending the endless and arguably illegal foreign wars was part of Trumps election platform. Now the Trump hating crowd is shocked that a politician is actually trying to follow is promises.

But yes I know.... we need foreign wars, because orange man baad!

Taliban hide the guy behind killing 3000+ Americans. As I've said here before, the US involvement in Afghanistan should have been 150 specops guys.

But the military (and probably VP Cheney) talked Bush-jr into deploying everything, making a poor country even worse off. Old-men in power there want their women barefoot, uneducated, and at home.

It could have worked, except those old-men are afraid of smart, educated, women and would rather kill them and anyone trying to help them improve their position.

To western women, seeing their Afghani sisters being held down cannot stand. They cannot look the other way, unlike some others, it seems.
