I think these talks will not show any immediate results, it is very dificult to find one solution at all and even more difficult to find a longterm solution for these conflicts because Pakistan/Afghanistan are extremely unstable regions and Karzai and Zardari may not be forceful enough to achieve real "breakthroughs" back home, they are very unpopular in their countries. But I also think that Barack Obama will try to get as much as he can out of these talks, so let's hope for the best!

No, I don’t think there will be any result from these talks. Because these three people are from the same team. Taliban is a terrorist organization so far we understand. But once they were ruling Afghanistan. Then they thought they are the only pure Muslims of the world and attacked world trade centre and destroyed it. Then USA and NATO came to Afghanistan and capture it but couldn’t diminish Taliban. But after eight years of invasion of USA in Afghanistan still Taliban exists. Osama bin Laden and Molla Omer are still alive. It proves that Taliban has at least some popularity. If that is so, why don’t you ask them for discussion? Just ask them what do they want.

Circumstances on the ground can only be changed by giving Afghan people an alternative for supporting the Taliban. As long as they have no job, no education and nothing to eat, the Taliban will always be able to gain more and more support. If spending hundreds of billions of dollars in a war is possible, spend a few dimes also to help the Afghan civilians. Giving them a future and their support for the Taliban will slip away and the war will be won!

These talk will not change anything.
Pak is surely playing double game. Pak is not doing enough on its own but is blackmailing the world while milking USA by continuously asking millions of dollars as aid. It will not help anyone but Zardari, who is enjoying his dreams come true.

Why can't it be like Iraq where US forces took control and improved the situation? Hillary Clinton's concerns are geniune but what effective steps are being taken to control this?
