(Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Saturday he hoped proposed U.S. talks with the Taliban are put back on track after this week's delays, and warned that a recently opened Taliban office in Qatar may have to close if peace talks do not proceed.

"We need to see if we can get back on track," Kerry told a news conference.

Taliban “office” is a railroad car where the Taliban beat people to death

Yeah, close the office.

That'll teach them a lesson! They can't mess with us or we'll close their office.

A Taliban office is a soccer field where women are shot in the back of the head.

Close the office and take the occupants as POW’s...or better yet, just execute them on the spot and burn down the office, alas some will say that’s extreme, my question would be, is it really extreme to administer the only actions these sub-humans respect?

This treasonous SOB is eager to get back to the Taliban in order that he can surrender America. Hope that he doe not give up American soldiers and Marines into Taliban hands for “War Crimes” against the Afghan people.

The absurdity of this “threat” is astounding. I would imagine that we already paid for this quasi embassy and by so doing helped to legitimize these thugs.

The Taliban don’t care about peace - they want to survive to rule another day...and if sending some front men to waste the time of our diplomats - so be it...If Kerry was so perceptive - he’d realize that this is the same thing that happened in Vietnam - but for someone too busy earning medals just to throw them away — I guess Kerry missed out!
