Ain his election date blog, Thomas Ruttig is quoted here as saying that inviting the Taliban to run in elections was nothing really new and that the same offer had been made to the militants earlier. The Taliban, he said, had not accepted the offer. Ruttig hoped that this time, the Taliban would consider it. ‘I hope that the Taliban will realize that there is no military solution to the Afghan conflict.’ (Not only the Taleban.)
