Have We Learned to Love the Taliban?

Have we learned to love the Taliban? And how did this major shift happen so quickly? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the recent plans to start negotiations with the Taliban. Afghan President Hamid Karzai wants to talk to Taliban leaders, and his backers in the U.S. and Europe are all for it. What does this shift mean for the future of Afghanistan?

Join us live at 11 or send us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org. Are you ready for U.S. troops pulling out of Afghanistan, regardless of what it means for the future of the Afghan people? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
