Moonbat Strategy for Dealing With the Taliban
Posted by Dave Blount at January 26, 2010 1:27 PM
Here we have the liberal anti-terror strategy in a nutshell:
KABUL, Afghanistan — The leader of the United Nations mission here called on Afghan officials to seek the removal of at least some senior Taliban leaders from the United Nations' list of terrorists, as a first step toward opening direct negotiations with the insurgent group.
In an interview, Kai Eide, the United Nations special representative, also implored the American military to speed its review of the roughly 750 detainees in its military prisons here — another principal grievance of Taliban leaders.
The UN doesn't have a monopoly on moonbattery:
American, Afghan and NATO leaders are also preparing to start an ambitious program to persuade rank-and-file Taliban fighters to give up in exchange for schooling and jobs. That plan, expected to cost hundreds of millions of dollars, will be the focus of an international conference this week in London.
If we pretend they aren't terrorists, and let them out of jail, we can all sit down together to discuss root causes, and then if we shower enough free taxpayer money on them, they'll agree to be nice liberal Democrats.
There is one thing we should be able to agree on even with the Taliban: the useless joke known as the United Nations needs to go the way of the League of Nations.
