What people are saying?
Frank Shetler The Taliban wanted to take over Afghanistan with zero plan for the people.. Afghanistan is their problem now.They’re forcing the country back into the dark ages. Why would anyone help them?
Birgitte If will prevent terrorism he should put enormous pressure on Taliban and tell them to let girls and women go on with their education after international standards.
Andrew Personally I think this overture is mad. We are being played yet again. The only people who benefit are the egos of the Brit officials involved. Mad stuff.
