    The headstrong person is not to be stopped in his own course of action, while the obstinate and stubborn is not to be driven to another's way. The headstrong act; the obstinate and stubborn may simply refuse to stir.

  4. Michael Kugelman:

    We shouldn't overstate the importance of this letter. It may be a case of the Taliban trying to earn some legitimacy and goodwill by playing the role of good guy and proposing nonviolent solutions, at the end of the day, The Taliban has no incentive to propose talks unless it's starting to feel major pressure on the battlefield. Though U.S. forces have ramped up their fight, I think it's too early for The Taliban to suddenly conclude it's not worth fighting anymore. Michael Kugelman said the Taliban offer could nonetheless be useful to the President Trump administration. Even if the letter is just a bluff, and I assume it is, the White House can say - Look, our strategy is already paying off.
