Afghans Skeptical of Karzai's Plan to Negotiate With Taliban

"Tthe biggest challenge these days is security," real estate agent Muhib Hussein said. "Everything is dependent on security. When there is security people will be investing, business men will be opening new businesses and they will be employment for people. If you go to roundabouts in the morning you can see hundreds of people standing around looking for work. This is because security is not good. There are not jobs for people.''

Talking With the Taliban

Street vendor Hakim Kahn, 27, told ABC News that ''negotiation is the key to bring peace. Fighting will never bring peace ... They should make concessions to the Taliban in order to bring peace. ''

Hussein agrees. "Now there is no unity among the people and this causes big problems ...Negotiation with the Taliban is a very good. They are all Afghan's, they are all Muslim's and they should be unity among all of us," he said.
