Hamid Karzai says Taliban chief Mullah Omar can run for Afghan presidency

Afghan President Hamid Karzai called on Thursday on Taliban supreme leader Mullah Omar to give up fighting his US-backed government in return for the chance to run for president of the war-torn nation.

Mullah Omar, the one-eyed Taliban leader who has been on run since the United States toppled his regime in late 2001, is one of the world's most wanted men and is leading a Taliban insurgency aimed at ousting Karzai.

Karzai has repeatedly called on Omar and other insurgents fighting against his administration to renounce violence and accept peaceful reintegration.

"I repeat my call on all Afghans, those who aren't the puppets of others and have (only) issues with us at home – they're welcome for any talks," he told a news conference.

"Mullah Mohammad Omar can come inside Afghanistan anywhere he wants to. He can open political office for himself but he should leave the gun.

"He along with his friends can come and create his political party, do politics, become a candidate himself for the elections. If people voted for him, good for him, he can take the leadership in his hand," Karzai said.

When it all comes down to it, Karzai is not to be trusted. Ever.

Oh, perfect. Sure am glad to hear this after all the human lives and resources we've invested in this piss-ant country only to have its leader throw everything away. Time to pull every plug on this rat hole.

Baloney...Karzai knows it would cost him billions of dollars.

Remember, Karzai's family has/had run Afghanistan for years.

It would be nice if they both ate the same drone strike.

Must be close to the time when the last plane loaded with bales of US currency is scheduled to deliver its cargo to Karzai.

Nice try, but since Mullah Omar is a Muslim, as is Karzai, Omar certainly understands that, as directed by their ‘holy’ writings, Muslims routinely call for a truce such as this as a pretext to retrench and rebuild their forces, while lulling their opponent into a false sense of safety and security, after which they brutally murder him.

Karzai has no desire to follow in the footsteps of Najibullah. Or rather, the drag marks...

Mulah Omar is EVIL. While I was in Afghanistan, an Afghan related his unspeakable acts of cruelty. Karzai is likely a heroin addict, so who who knows where his mind is at.

Right...and the first time he sticks his head out of his cave, the SEALS can give him the "Bin Laden" treatment. Can't happen soon enough.

It appears Afghanistan will shortly usher in its pre-2001 Taliban oppressors, minus only Osama Bin Laden.
