Taliban Joining Afghani Democracy

It seems that the Taliban in Afghanistan are choosing to accept the US backed amnesty deal offered by the government of Hamid Karzai. Since they were unable to disrupt last fall’s Presidential election, the attacks against US and coalition forces have waned, and senior leaders of the Taliban have come forward to negotiate what amounts to a surrender, in exchange for a voice in the new government.

This is fantastic news, and it seems to mirror the rumor of something that is happening in Iraq with the remnants of the former Baathist regime.
