    The political dispute within the Washington-backed government deepened Sunday when another governor and ally of Noor in the north, Abdul Karim Khadam, refused an order from Ghani that he resign as governor of Samangan province.

    “The government’s decision is unjust and unfair,” Khadam said in a telephone interview, adding that it goes against a power-sharing agreement reached last spring between the Jamiat party and the president.

    Khadam took pains to emphasize that his refusal to obey the order did not amount to an armed rebellion. “Our opposition to the government does not mean we are rebelling,” he said.

    You should all just surrender and give the country back to the Taliban. They've beaten you. Badly.

    Well, at least you didn't disagree with me, it's a start.

    We are still over there. It's more than a "curiosity".

    The Taliban have contained us. We're such losers and can't even beat people wrapped in sheets and curtains.

    I'm pretty sure that they want to be useful dildos now that Pakistan's cash flow has been cut.

    Pakistan needs to be nuked, just for good measure.
