US to Consider Political Party For the Taliban — Victory?

If you live in a democracy, you must accept that ideologies you disagree with often get represented in government. This may soon happen in Afghanistan. The outgoing US ambassador to Afghanistan thinks that establishing a stable government in that country might require inviting the Taliban to the election-happy party of democracy.

Ambassador Wood maintains that the Taliban should never be part of a power sharing arrangement; however, if the insurgency ends there will surely be some sort of agreement. He says: "There is room for discussions on the formation of political parties, (or) running . . . for elections."

Perhaps some of the less radical forces within the Taliban might need to participate in Afghanistan's democracy if there is to be true stability. Do you think it could work?
