    Karzai praises Obama's deadline

    It's about time we pushed the Afgans to take control of their own destiny, don't you think? They have a much larger stake in the defeat of the Taliban than we do, after all. Not only that, but it is difficult to see how we are going to be able to defend that nation from a threat that is basically internal.

    Now, the help and to motivate Pakistan to boot the extremists out of their country before we have radicals taking over a nuclear armed nation.

    Karzai will eventually have to include the Taliban in the Afghan government.

    When the American occupiers leave. He will be free to do that.

    Other wise, he and his puppet government will fail and be over thrown..

    Of course he likes a deadline.

    He now knows how long he has to rack in all the dough he can before we leave. Believe me he'll be right behind our boys when they leave.

    Karzai was IN the Taliban.

    And after our fool's errand ends, he probaly will be so again.

    If he isn't right now that is.
