Hamid Karzai never seems to surprise us when presenting Burhanuddin Rabbani, a former Tadjik warlord as the chairman of a new peace council. The intention is to invite Taliban to peace negotiations. This warlord is the very one who is responsible for thousands of deaths in the war between Taliban and the Northern Alliance (Tadjiks, Hazara and Uzbeks). Now Hamid Karzai thinks that Rabbani is capable of enticing Talibans to peace negotiations? This is just another way of deluding the western countries and NATO forces. How tempted do you believe that Taliban are to hold peace talks with a warlord and a criminal leader as Burhanuddin Rabbani?
The High Peace Council is doomed to fail since the best before date for Rabbani has passed the same day he was ousted as president of Afghanistan. The only place that is suitable for Rabbani is be prosecuted for the war crimes he has committed during and after his six month time as the president of Afghanistan. A more in depth inspection of the wealth of Burhannudin Rabbani and his relatives would be in place.
