Taliban strike deal with Qatar on office there - World news - South and Central Asia - Afghanistan - msnbc.com This is a huge event for an end to the Afghanistan dilema. The Taliban will not negotiate with Karzai directly. For a long time now I have stated we should make a peace deal with them ... let's hope something good happens. Also would be good in the meantime to see Karzai go ... he is corrupt as they come. Obama could greatly enhance his worldwide image here ... which also benefits our country.
