    And you're paying for this America. Your Tax Dollars at work. Fun times huh?


    Gulf Widens Between U.S. and a More Volatile Karzai

    The Americans in Afghanistan are “demons.”

    They claim they burned Korans by mistake, but really those were “Satanic acts that will never be forgiven by apologies.”

    The massacre of 16 Afghan children, women and men by an American soldier “was not the first incident, indeed it was the 100th, the 200th and 500th incident.”

    Such harsh talk may sound as if it comes from the Taliban, but those are all remarks either made personally by the United States’ increasingly hostile ally here, President Hamid Karzai, or issued by his office in recent days and weeks.

    The strongest such outburst came Friday. “Let’s pray for God to rescue us from these two demons,” Mr. Karzai said, apparently holding back tears at a meeting with relatives of the massacre victims, and clearly referring to the United States and the Taliban in the same breath. “There are two demons in our country now.”

    Ever since the Koran-burning episode on Feb. 20 and its violent aftermath, the relationship between the two governments has lurched from one crisis to another. American officials have scrambled to run damage control, with President Obama expressing a personal apology for the Koran burning, as well as regrets about the massacre, while calling Mr. Karzai twice in the past week.

    Gee.....a Middle Eastern politician....resorting to religious/fundamentalist-idiom....in-order-to appeal to his Country's least-educated populace.

    Whatta shocker.

    You're gonna have to try a little-harder, than that, Hamid.....or, maybe switch places with John Boner. You're both dealing with outta-control religious-whack-jobs....but, we've got a much-better (increasingly-better) economy. Hell.....we could even sweeten the deal and throw-in Eric Cantor. ​

    Karzai is a dishonest thief who's gotten rich off our taxdollars. The only thing he leads is his pocketbook.

    If I were the Generals over there I would tell him to kiss our ass. Remove our troops and watch him deal with the Taliban on his own.

    Believe me, that asshole will be leaving Astan in one big hurry when we pull out.

    .

    What, people are surprised at this?

    And precisely what did we expect when we took over that country so many years ago?

    Karzai has money in a Swiss Bank account and a swanky apartment in London, when shit starts rolling down hill in Afghanistan he will be on the first flight out of there.

    Karzai is under the false impression that he is running an effective government that can exist on it's own for some strange reason.

    Let's do the logical thing here:

    Withdrawal from Afghanistan.

    Immediately hault ALL foreign aid flowing to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    He'll change his toon within an hour of having to actually govern his war-torn nation and it's tribal leaders who hate each other without US assistance.

    By then though... we'll have the satisfaction of being able to say "Ha! It's too late."
