Trump cancelled a secret meeting with Taliban and Afghan leaders aimed at ending America’s longest war and told reporters at the White House on Monday that he sees no point in resuming a nearly yearlong effort to reach a political settlement with the Taliban. Peace talks with the Taliban are now ’dead,’ President Donald Trump declared Monday, .

I agree with Trump's reasoning on this - it's a big mistake to murder other people for a perceived improvement in negotiations. There should be some sort of consequences for the Taliban, and preferably, the very painful kind that lead to a lifelong aversion to repeating the mistake.

It's a waste of time and resources to attempt to negotiate with terrorists.

I must’ve missed the news that the talks were alive. MSM conveniently didn’t cover the idea that Trump was withdrawing from a pointless war after 18 years (longest ever). Hope he finds a sufficient cease-fire so that they can live their pathetic lives without terrorizing anyone:

I guess the Taliban will just wait it out until the U.S. eventually collapses!

Peace talks with the Taliban are as pointless as "green tourism."

Lightning strikes and rolling thunder for the next year; 24 hours a day 365 days. Just call it bombing practice and weapons testing. MOAB's every other day. If it moves it is a target. They like craters so much give them what they want.

Bring the troops home. Let them fight for themselves. Not our responsibility.
