Now, the Afghanistan Fiasco: Whack-a-mole with Arrested Political Reconciliation

Pakistan's arrest of top Taliban leader? A former U.N. guy is now talking openly about it as having stalled tripartite talks among Taliban, Afghanistan, and U.N.

Why would a non-party to the talks do that?!

The Taliban gain territory, in what looks on the surface a little bit like whack-a-mole. It's in the North, Kunduz.

Sound great?

There's more.

Iran is reportedly taking an interest in arming the Taliban.

The only brightspot in today's news is something like an "awakening" among the frontier tribesman to oppose "militants". LOL.
