That didn't take long.

AM - how does the saying go? Something like "When every other person you debate is obviously an idiot, and wrong, it may be time to re-evaluate your position." We are not a gang of teenaged boys hopped up on Monster Energy and playing Call of Duty all day, fantasizing about war.

This "talk with the Taliban after 9/11" smacks of Neville Chamberlain's desperation in the late 1930's. 9/11 demanded action, not diplomacy. Diplomacy died along with >3,000 of our citizens on that day.

If any other mods feel this is premature, feel free to open the thread.
