hospital bombing comes as the United States is quietly exploring some diplomatic options that could reduce the violence in Afghanistan – and perhaps even curb the danger of a nuclear Pakistan next door.The U.S. recognized more than four years ago that the best way out of the Afghanistan conflict would be a diplomatic settlement that involved the Taliban and its sometime sponsors in Pakistan. But the pace of negotiations has quickened this year, thanks to an unlikely U.S. diplomatic partnership with China. The U.S. and Pakistan were observers to discussions there between Afghan government and Taliban representatives.The nuclear dialogue is especially important because it would begin to address what U.S. officials for two decades have viewed as one of the world's most dangerous security problems.In return for such an agreement, the source said, the U.S. might support an eventual waiver for Pakistan by the 48-nation Nuclear Suppliers Group, of which the U.S. is a member. America may have forgotten Afghanistan and Pakistan, but those volatile countries haven't forgotten about America.
