Comparitive Analysis: The Taliban Position and the Troops-Out Position.

Setting aside the ridiculous claims the two camps make for themselves, can anyone draw any fundamental distinctions between the latest analysis offered by the self-proclaimed Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (the "Taliban") and the various and sundry pronouncements of Canada's self-proclamed "anti-war" movement (Steve Staples of Ceasefire, the Canadian Peace Alliance, etc.)?

To assist you in your inquiries, here is the Reponse of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan As Regards Lisbon Meeting. Here is what the Canadian Peace Alliance (such an amusing boast) has to say about the directly-related Canadian decision to stick around with a military troop-training project in Afghanistan. Plus a Ceasefire petition. Plus various ruminations from the towering intellectual giant Steve Staples on the subject.

Just asking is all.

Just for fun, here's the Toronto Star's Haroon Siddiqui: Afghanistan - It's Even Worse Than You Thought, and here's the Taliban's Voice of Jihad: The Americans can no longer conceal their defeat in the Kandahar operations.
