Dutch Treat

From the Brussels Journal, a new way of dealing with the resurgent Taliban:

There is some commotion in the Netherlands following a report in The [London] Times (6 January) that Dutch troops in Afghanistan have found a new way of beating the Taliban. They invite them round to tea.

...

The Times reports how the Dutch military HQ in Uruzgan province, on the fringes of Taliban country, is run as an open house where locals, including Taliban sympathizers and fighters, are encouraged to air their grievances and talk politics, whilst munching nuts and dried fruit and sipping tea. The reaction to the “Dutch model” is mixed. Some locals say the Dutch act “with great respect for local culture, traditions and tribal leaders – that has had a positive impact.”

I understand that these meetings feature a wide selection of hors d'oeuvres and sweetmeats, followed by cigars and a friendly game of touch football. They originally offered pony rides, but the Afghan warlords couldn't seem to grasp the concept of not gang-raping the infidel horse.

You know what else would have a "positive impact", Holland?

Shooting a few of these guys once in a while.
