Obama’s Moderate Taliban, What?
“Obama’s comment resemble a dream more than reality,” said Waheed Mozhdah, an analyst who has written a book on the Taliban. President Barack Obama’s proposal to reach out to moderate Taliban, end the Afghan insurgency.
Nobody knows why Obama is talking about moderate Taliban and what it means? Im sure Obama don’t know what he’s talking about, I guess he didn’t have that teleprompter with him. Afghan President Hamid Karzai welcomed Obama’s proposal but analysts were doubtful.
“Where are the so-called moderate Taliban? Who are the moderate Taliban?” asked Mozhdah, who was an official in both the Taliban and the Karzai governments. Than the question “‘Moderate Taliban’ is like ‘moderate killer’. Is Obama dreaming here? Obama’s proposal to reach out to moderate Taliban was also aimed at splitting the movement. The violence has also risen, as the Taliban have stepped up their campaign to force out Western troops.
70,000 foreign troops, 38,000 of them American, are due to be joined in coming months by another 17,000 U.S. soldiers. The Taliban are very rigid in their demands and they don’t want to talk.
