My response to both the Karzai government and to the Taliban is to use their “demand / suspension of talks” as a good reason to begin an orderly withdrawl of US troops ahead of schedule. While I don’t usually agree with positions of Sen. Grahama of SC I imagine he is right that the US cannot effectively achieve the current counterinsurgency objectives by retreating to inside large bases. So, fine, let them have their “country” / settle their own disputes / determine the extent they want Muslim domination of the government and stop wasting US lives and dollars. Whenever we do withdraw troops it will end up being the same anyway. We never seem to learn from the history of others or our own recent past histories.

Karzai demands U.S. troops leave village outposts; Taliban suspends peace talks with U.S.

KABUL — President Hamid Karzai demanded Thursday that the United States pull back from combat outposts and confine its troops to military bases in Afghanistan, an apparent response to Sunday’s shooting rampage by a U.S. staff sergeant.

Meanwhile, the Taliban said it was suspending preliminary peace talks with the United States because of Washington’s “alternating and ever-changing position,” and accused U.S. officials of reneging on promises to take meaningful steps toward a prisoner swap.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta held talks with Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Kabul on Thursday, as Afghan lawmakers expressed anger over the move to fly an American soldier accused of killing 16 civilians out of the country to Kuwait.

The announcements followed a meeting between Karzai and U.S. Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta in Kabul, after which U.S. officials said the two sides had made progress discussing the contentious issue of night raids — but did not mention any discussion of a pullback.

Tension between the United States and Afghanistan soared last month after the burning of Korans by U.S. troops set off a wave of violent protests and retaliatory killings. Support for the war is slipping among Americans as well as Afghans. Sunday’s massacre of 16 civilians — and the transfer of the staff sergeant believed to be responsible to a U.S. base in Kuwait to await prosecution — further outraged the Afghan people.

I’m sure the relationship between the U.S. military-industrial complex and the Afghan narco traffikers will survive this upheaval.

The more subtle issue here is that the Taliban are not willing to negotiate with Karzai’s representative. We have put ourselves in the ridiculous position of (a) legitimizing the Taliban by agreeing to negotiate with them, and (b) allowing the Taliban to de-legitimize the Karzai government that we support by refusing to negotiate with it. If we conclude our talks with the Taliban, they will have a perfectly legitimate political position – the U.S. is leaving, and the Karzai government is illegitimate, on its face. Once we leave, we’re not coming back. How long do you think it will be before the Taliban re-establish themselves as part of the Afghan government?
