This article goes more indepth about the recent relationship between Pakistan and the Taliban.

It's pretty frightening what I've read so far. Seems like the new Pakistani Gov't are a bunch of cowering wimps and want to 'negotiate'.
Obviously the Taliban don't want to, not unless the gov't institutes Shariah law and gives up a certain part of the state towards the group.

Man. And if that wasn't bad enough, these parties want to negotiate even though the Taliban still wants to kill them. I mean, there's being naive and then there's being stupid, although it's easy to cross the line.
