Will we negotiate with the taliban?

There's a lot of great information in this article, not just what's said in the title.

"On Monday, Tillerson showed up unannounced in the country, arriving in a military transport plane at the Pentagon’s illegal Bagram airbase.He’ll meet with US-installed Afghan officials in a windowless bunker for protection. Hated Americans risk being attacked. Coming to Kabul is dangerous.Tillerson didn’t risk a visit to America’s heavily fortified embassy in the city. Taliban fighters wanting US troops out of the country can show up anywhere.Tillerson downplayed the deplorable state of things. US aggression and occupation bear full responsibility.He disgracefully lied, claiming “Afghanistan has come quite a distance already in terms of creating a much more vibrant population, a much more vibrant government, education system, a larger economy.”“So there are opportunities to strengthen the foundations of a prosperous Afghanistan society” – never under illegal US occupation.Tillerson unambiguously said America intends to stay, what I called permanent occupation in earlier articles, using the country for oil and gas pipelines, part of encircling Russia and China with US military bases, and plundering vast Afghan mineral riches – likely worth trillions of dollars.Afghanistan is also the world’s largest opium producer. Heroin and other illicit drugs produce hundreds of billions of dollars in annual revenues – a US government-supported bonanza for corrupt regime officials, the CIA, organized crime and Western financial institutions, heavily involved in money laundering.Pre-9/11, Afghanistan under Taliban rule eradicated 94% of opium production, according to UN estimates. America’s presence in the country revived it."

Yep, the almighty dollar.  It's always the almighty dollar.  Those people over there are just as sick of American leaders as most US domiciled American's are.
