The badly misunderstood jihadis
This is the same clown who said he would talk the Taliban into surrendering. With military commanders like Barron, why should the Taliban have any doubt that they will at some time succeed in toppling the present Afghani government? Straight from the “dumber than dirt” dumpster:
Major General Richard Barrons backs the move despite concerns that militants might use it as an opportunity to infiltrate the security services.
In two separate incidents last week, a Taliban bomber wearing a military uniform and a suicide vest entered a base in Khost and blew himself up inside the gym, killing eight Americans thought to be CIA officers, and an Afghan soldier killed a member of the US forces and wounded two Italian soldiers when he opened fire at an army base in western Afghanistan. In November, a rogue Afghan policeman shot dead five British soldiers while serving alongside them.
Two more British soldiers killed in Afghanistan, MoD confirmsGen Barrons, who heads a newly-formed Nato unit seeking to reintegrate former insurgents, said he also expected to see Taliban commanders take senior positions within the President Hamid Karzai’s administration in the future. He is hoping for “substantive delivery” in coaxing fighters to defect by late summer of this year.
