Good for Karzai. He'll probably be taken out for this, but he has more testicles than most people--Obama and Hagel are following a weak, flaccid foreign policy course.
Maybe Bibi can call Karzai and the two can have a meeting of the minds...they are two guys who don't seem to have a problem standing up to the Clown.
Karzai is an idiot. The minute the last soldier and Marine leaves that hellhole is the minute his number is up. There is no way in hell the ANA can hold on to Afghanistan. While there are a few ANA units that can hold their own, the majority will melt away as soon as they feel any pressure from the Taliban.
Agreed. A lifetime ago, it seems, I was in Philadelphia to watch Karzai receive the Liberty medal. He was no one’s puppet, even though he has to walk a tightrope of competing interests..tribes, terrorists, U.S. government, etc. The man had a very strong command of American History and articulated elements of our Constitution and Declaration of Independence with ease, understanding and application. It seems so long ago. I do wonder what happens when he leaves office.
After WWII allied intelligence used former Nazi and other “left behind” forces to perform a variety of “terrorist” attacks against soft targets for the sole purpose of swaying opinion away from the communists. These events went on through the cold war. It would not surprise me if coalition forces in the Afghan region are not employing the same tactic.
Karzai better keep his head down...drones are everywhere in his country.
Yep. I reckon that Hussein Obama is more of a Muslim than Hamid Karzaik. Hussein loves fighting on behalf of Muslim terrorists and providing them with weapons. I suspect he’s an honorary member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
But remember, Grandma has to be groped at the airport and Big Sis has to read all our email or those mean ol' Muslim terrorists will get us. The same Muslim terrorists the US taxpayers are paying to attack Christians in Syria. See how that works.
We need to turn him over to the Taliban.
