Afghan government officials and Taliban insurgents gathered on Saturday for 'historic' peace talks, aimed at ending two decades of war that have killed tens of thousands of people and devastated a nation.

"Each of you carry a great responsibility," Pompeo told the participants."You have an opportunity to overcome your divisions."

While Saturday's opening was about ceremony, the hard negotiations between Taliban representatives and an Afghan-delegation that includes members of the Kabul government, will be held behind closed doors and over a number of sessions.Issues including the terms of a permanent cease-fire, the rights of women and minorities, and the disarming of tens of thousands of Taliban fighters and militias loyal to warlords, some of them aligned with the government, are all set to be discussed.

G-d have mercy on the women and girls of Afghanistan.

When do you think it will implode. I give it 2 weeks

Never trust a guy that doesn’t like a girl in a mini-skirt.

What a joke, it would never work. The Taliban already stated the they well fight for next 20 years if needed to destroy the Afghan government. They are bitter enemies..!

As long as the Taliban can terrorize the country side it will last.

And the only reason Trump cares is because he desperately wants that Peace Prize.

Thank Trump.

Uh huh.

The Russian bounty joining forces

So now we negotiate with terrorist

All because of PRESIDENT TRUMP

Is this a 'Name this Band' tweet?

They shouldn’t have sheltered Al Qaeda then should they

What's the Quid? The Pro? And, the Quo?

What has pompous pompeo secretly promised, on the backs of American taxpayers!

Wow. What timing. Btw I want reparations. $1 Trillion?

Trump Peace

Wait, which war is that? [a boner was just popped in every MSNBC man’s pants]

I think that's a good time to remind people that while they were busy running around burning down villages, they were actually building roads, schools, hospitals and other infrastructure for their own people.

Pretty sure i've seen this movie. It doesn't start or end well.

What a bunch of morons , fighting over a god that never existed !

. Voting for a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Double Nominee is the most patriotic thing you can do this year, not for yourself, but, for America. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 . Vote Trump for a great America ! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ .

Thank you realDonaldTrump Bringing our troops home, as promised!

They tried this before and it fell through. That being said, Trump is now removing troops from Afghanistan. They likely hate us being there more than they hate each other.

Who trust on these people ?

No rights for women I’m sure. Who cares about their lives?

Yea.. but if Trumps name is on it we don't want a peace deal.. Right liberals/left?

Instantly, Liberals attack Trump. Seems like lefties don’t want wars to end after all! “Oh it’s a farce. It will break down. Orange Man Bad!” So you’d rather them just keep killing. Nice.

Maybe Trump does deserve the Nobel Peace Prize

Left wingers hoping for failure. Trump has them defending the Military Industrial Complex, Forever War, pedophilia, sex trafficking, anti-vaxxers...
