OK, basically I give a poll based question every day on the news and what have you (maybe we could do a cricket one as well) and each day we'll get results, I think it will be interesting.
Should the U.S. pursue talks with moderate elements of the Taliban?
I found this one on the time magazine website, personally I think the war what the US and other western powers has not been very successful whatsoever and has resulted in even more hatred toward the west by the middle east. One could argue that we have took down Saddam Hussein's brutal dictatorship, weakened Al Qaeda and the Taliban and created a democracy in Iraq. But at what price? Both sides have shown disgraceful incidents which comes back to that "All's fair in love and war." Cliche and thousands (If not a million) have died. Personally though I think the US would get a lot done through basic diplomacy. So I think yes they should at least talk with each other, but what if one side doesn't want to listen? It could result in only more violence, but on the whole I think they should try. So I choose option one.
But what do you think?
