Taliban sources claimed that they had reached an initial peace deal with the United States on Saturday in which American troops would depart from the country within 18 months.
American officials have sought for years to come to an agreement with the Islamist militant group that would see the Taliban disarm as a combatant force opposing both the Afghan and American militaries, usually offering a role to play in Afghanistan’s democratic political system as an alternative to armed militancy.
Reuters claimed to have seen the draft agreement of the proposal, which was negotiated over in Qatar between Taliban representatives and U.S Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad. On Twitter, the U.S diplomat described “significant progress” as having been made from the talks in Qatar.
Some might object to the very premise of negotiation with a organization thought of by many as an Islamist terrorist group. However, the prospect of simply destroying the Taliban as a significant element within Afghan society has seemed less and less likely as the United States’ record-setting 18-year engagement in the country has continued on, the longest overseas war in American history by far. Afghan forces have continued to demonstrate themselves largely ineffective or unwilling to confront the Taliban in a meaningful way, continuing to cede great swathes of the Central Asian country to the group despite hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S military aid.
It’s long past time that the boots on the ground opposing the Taliban be drawn from populations that actually live in Afghanistan.
Declaring victory and bringing American troops home safe from harm’s way would allow the U.S military to refocus on preparing for contingencies that pose a far more realistic threat to American national security than the Taliban, such as North Korea, China, and Iran.

President Trump Prepares Afghanistan Peace Deal To End America’s Longest War
It’s about time.
President Donald Trump is preparing a monumental peace deal with the Afghan Taliban to withdraw thousands of U.S service members from Afghanistan and start winding down America’s lengthiest war.
The President is dispatching Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to attend the signing of the peace deal in Qatar. The White House published a statement on the upcoming peace deal Friday, emphasizing the need to finally end the seemingly endless Afghan War.
The statement emphasizes President Trump’s campaign promise during 2016 to pursue a final end to the ceaseless, never-ending conflict.
Senior military and state department officials had met with representatives of the Taliban on Thursday night. The Taliban has been negotiating with the United States and the Afghan government on and off for months now.
Leaked documents have revealed a legacy of corruption and waste surrounding the U.S presence in Afghanistan.
The US-Taliban peace deal with reduce the amount of American service members present within the country from around 13,000 to 8,600. The burden of securing Taliban-dominated Afghan provinces will now be further shifted upon the Afghan government, a largely corrupt entity that has largely failed to provide a lasting and meaningful governmental alternative to the Islamist organization.
The Taliban has agreed never again to host extremist organizations such as al-Qaeda or ISIS in Afghanistan that plot attacks on the United States from the nation. The signing of the deal in Qatar has been preceded by a seven-day limited ceasefire, which the militant group had to obey in order for American authorities to sign the deal.
Some hawkish Senators and congressmen have openly called for limitless and infinite American military presence in the troubled Central Asian country.
