Iran state TV confirms arrest of 3 Americans
<snipped>
  By YAHYA BARZANJI, Associated Press Writer Yahya Barzanji, Associated Press Writer   – 6 mins ago

SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq – Iran state TV confirmed Saturday that it has detained three Americans who crossed the border from northern Iraq, saying they failed to heed warnings from Iranian guards. Kurdish officials from the self-ruled region in northern Iraq said the three — two men and a woman — were tourists who had mistakenly crossed into Iranian territory Friday while hiking in a mountainous area near the resort town of Ahmed Awaa.

"The Iranians said they have arrested them because they entered their land without legal permission," said Qubad Talabani, the Kurdish regional government's envoy to Washington.

I am sorry they have been captured, but something is hinky about all of this.

Of all places in the world to "hike" Kurdistan would not be on my "top" places in the world to take a hike.

UN official calls for talks with Taliban leaders

  By FISNIK ABRASHI, Associated Press Writer Fisnik Abrashi, Associated Press Writer   – 1 hr 50 mins ago

KABUL – The top U.N. official in Afghanistan called Sunday for talks with Taliban leaders at the highest level, another indication that parts of the international community are reaching out to the top echelons of the radical Islamist movement.

Kai Eide did not name Taliban leader Mullah Omar in his call for negotiations, but he dismissed plans that call for reaching out to only some militant commanders.

"If you want relevant results, you have to talk to those who are relevant. If you want important results, you have to talk to those who are important. If you only have a partial reconciliation process, you will have partial results," said Eide, a Norwegian diplomat who heads the United Nations mission to Afghanistan.

While the need for talks with the Taliban is recognized across the international community, the conditions attached to such proposals — and the timing of the talks — are a bone of contention.
President Hamid Karzai, facing a re-election challenge later this month, has repeatedly called for talks with Taliban leaders on condition that the militants accept Afghanistan's constitution. Karzai has even personally guaranteed safe passage for Omar if he attends such talks.

Omar, who is believed to be hiding out in Pakistan, has publicly dismissed the overtures, calling Karzai an American puppet and saying no talks can happen while foreign troops are in the country.

But behind the public posturing, several Gulf countries are working on sketching out the contours of a political process that could eventually bring an end to the expanding conflict. The war is claiming a record number of lives among U.S. and NATO troops and Afghan civilians nearly eight years after the U.S. invaded the country and ousted the Taliban from power.

The Taliban government — led by Omar — was sheltering Osama bin Laden as he plotted the al-Qaida attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Eide's remarks follow calls made last week by David Miliband, the British foreign secretary, for talks with regular Taliban fighters.

Miliband said that while hard-line fundamentalist commanders committed to a global jihad must be pursued relentlessly, ordinary rank-and-file Taliban should be given the opportunity "to leave the path of confrontation with the government."
He said Afghanistan's government must develop "a political strategy for dealing with the insurgency through reintegration and reconciliation" and "effective grass-roots initiatives to offer an alternative to fight or flight to the foot soldiers of the insurgency."

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Washington agrees with the British analysis of the way forward.

Eide said that his approach is more comprehensive.

"If you do want a comprehensive peace process, it is not enough to talk to the commanders on the ground," Eide said. "It is a political process, and I think you also have to approach the more political structures of the insurgency movement," he said without naming any insurgent leaders.

Good afternoon/good morning west coasters!

Sad day today for me, Robert~close to my son's age & Jaliek Rainwalker's birthday 

I'm like nrcg, wondering why I come here and torture myself. 

Hope everyone has a good day.  It's cold & rainy here, going to catch up on housework.  I hope to be back later maybe to some good news?

Good Morning.  Glad to see everyone is safe.  We had another dark cloud yesterday.  Oldest son and 5 buddies drove down to a 4 day music festival.  It was hit with a freak storm last night, stage collapsed on 170 people, 1 dead, 4 critical, hundreds hurt.  Not heard from any of them yet.  Rogers cut cell service down to only emergency crews so no one can get through on any of their cell phones.  Please pray for all the people that were and still are there and that we hear from him soon.  The second link has pictures from the event before and after the stage collapsed. 

here is the story.  http://edmonton.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20090802/EDM_storm_update_090802/20090802/?hub=EdmontonHome

I am scared to look for news.  The more pictures that are getting posted the more worried I get.  Another news site just posted more images and I am studying them to see if I can see any of their faces.  It looks like there were many that helped which is some comfort.

JSM, I like the way you think.  That is the only language they understand.  Don't these idiots at the UN understand what the Taliban did to Afganistan women and young girls?  Where's the UN Human Rights Commission?  They don't care, do they?  Disgraceful.
