[Updated at 10:06 a.m. ET] Could the end of the war in Afghanistan be in sight? A flash of hope flickered at the end of the tunnel Tuesday.
Afghan forces formally took over security responsibilities for their violence-plagued country from NATO-led troops on Tuesday, marking a key transition in the long and costly war.
President Hamid Karzai also announced that a government group dedicated to Afghan peace and reconciliation will go to the Gulf state of Qatar and participate in talks with the Taliban militant group - long the adversary of the Afghan and coalition soldiers trying to keep order in the nation.FULL STORY
Good means we are that much closer to getting the hell outta there!
Hopefully @chrissy if the likes Of Mccain,Graham &Co don't have their way.
It is already becoming another Islamic totalitarian theocracy filled with violence and insanity. Religion deserves no respect.
@ Wut, well ill pray that you reconsider that statement very carefully before judgement day!
And lets make sure that ALL of our military come home! WHY leave a "token" force on the ground when all it will result in is asking for help when the Afgan forces get into a little trouble? Let THEM take care of themselves! Sadly, when we leave, the sooner the better, I think we will see them return to their "normal" ways of life, like killing each other off!
this is funny, right now there is a gunfight at the afgan presidential palace. This is big news, it should be on a big sight like cnn. I geuss since the u.s is basically done with them they can forget about the place.
