Joe “the gaffe” Biden is at it again. In this case we can call him Joe “the genius” Biden for his latest claim that there are moderate Taliban that we should seek out and talk to.
5% incorrigible, 25% undecided and 70% capitalists. So according to Joe, only 5% of the Taliban are radicals and the rest just need a little understanding. Must be nice in his little world, all unicorns and butterflies. Meanwhile, back in the real world….
KABUL (Reuters) – Afghanistan’s Taliban on Tuesday turned down as illogical U.S. President Barack Obama’s bid to reach out to moderate elements of the insurgents, saying the exit of foreign troops was the only solution for ending the war.
Obama, in an interview with the New York Times, expressed an openness to adapting tactics in Afghanistan that had been used in Iraq to reach out to moderate elements there.
“This does not require any response or reaction for this is illogical,” Qari Mohammad Yousuf, a purported spokesman for the insurgent group, told Reuters when asked if its top leader Mullah Mohammad Omar would make any comment about Obama’s proposal.
“The Taliban are united, have one leader, one aim, one policy…I do not know why they are talking about moderate Taliban and what it means?”
“If it means those who are not fighting and are sitting in their homes, then talking to them is meaningless. This really is surprising the Taliban.” Source
Mr. Obama. If you have an original thought in your head, you will put Uncle Joe back in the basement where he can’t hurt anyone and can let that big genius sized brain of his have a rest. His advice is not helping you look any better to the rest of the world. The Taliban are laughing at you. They didn’t find President Bush so funny.
