Karzai to US: Get out of Afghanistan immediately
PressTV ^ | 3/16/2014 | PressTV

Posted on 03/16/2014 4:44:52 PM PDT by Dallas59

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has called on the United States and its Western allies to immediately get out of the country by the 2014 withdrawal deadline.

President Karzai told the US in his address to Afghan parliament that local security forces were strong enough to defend Afghanistan without Washington’s assistance.

The remarks come as Afghan military already protects 93 percent of the war-ravaged country.

The president also warned the US-led NATO countries against continuous meddling in Afghanistan’s internal affairs.

"I want to say to all those foreign countries who, maybe out of habit, or because they want to interfere, that they should not interfere," Karzai said.

Let them go. Too much American blood has been shed for 7th century Islam. Let China, India and Russia kill them.

Karzai will clean out the treasury and leave the keys to the country to a taliban warlord.

I have no problem with this. But with the caveat that whenever we detect a terrorist training camp we send in bombers to destroy it and then send a few missiles into government buildings just to let them know we disapprove.

"I want to say to all those foreign countries who, maybe out of habit, or because they want to interfere, that they should not interfere," Karzai said.

Ingratitude must be a genetic trait among the people who are from that part of the world.

My son and his troops just arrived in Kandahar yesterday for a deployment until the end of 2014. Pull them ALL out NOW as far as I’m concerned. We just risk wasting more blood and treasure on these fools.

Time to leave that 3rd world cess pool in the dust. STOP ALL AID immediately. Too many of our young people have lost lives and limbs and for what, some muzzie bastard that has been skimming the cream from the top of the money barrel we have been sending over there? May one last parting shot would be appropriate for Karzai himself to settle the score.

You are quite right (although I did not think that about our mission and purpose in Iraq).

Good luck to you and your son. Most of us can't imagine the level of your continuing concern.

Who the hell is Press TV? No by line and no one claiming credit for the article.

If true, then let’s do get the hell out. The plan should have never been to stay forever anyway! It should have been get in and KILL as many jihadis as we could in retaliation for 911 and then immediately withdraw! George Bush the older was right about Iraq. HIt em hard and GET OUT !!! Our leaders failed us again!

I wish they could all leave tomorrow and and drop a Nuke on that son of a bitch Karzai on the way out. Not one more killed or maimed American kid for this septic tank of a country.

Oddly enough, that was Biden's plan after 9/11. No occupying forces, just bombs and missiles. As much as it pains me to say it, Biden was on the right track.

As Douglas MacArthur said, never get involved in a land war in Asia.

LBJ ignored that and got involved in an Asian land war. But Bush2 did LBJ one better and got involved in two Asian land wars. And none of those wars were fought to win. Idiots.

Let the Muslim scum have the stinking country. Let them fight each other and kill each other by the thousands. That is all they know. Hate, murder, rape, oppression of women treating them like dirt and lower than dogs. That is all they live for, to kill. They know nothing else. They are taught from the moment of birth to hate and kill. The blood of one more soldier is not worth one rock of that stinking land. If this fool thinks he can hold off the Taliban, let him try. They will shortly cut his head off with an axe.

These guys always think THEY know a better way. It’s pathetic, sad and disgraceful to have launched two wars w/o a plan to win the wars and a plan to bring our troops home in a timely, safe fashion.

Then there’s the whole issue of having our children pay for the folly of these two wars.

Don’t get me wrong...I wanted the Taliban bombed back to the 1st Century...at least that would be a century they were comfortable with. But for whatever reason, we didn’t do what it takes to ‘win’ in Iraq or Afghanistan.

I want that despicable Karzai to pay for his treacherous behavior. I can’t imagine he would survive a nano second after we leave. I also imagine he and his family have socked away BILLIONS in various accounts.

We tried to play ball with the war lords. Karzai owes his very life to us. The people we would like to help never had nor will have a chance. Let the big dogs fight it out. The Taliban will win and we’ll be better off out of there. Our guys made a very honorable effort but our own government sold them out. Get them out with the minimum loss of life today!

Perhaps we can use it as a test range for nukes, or to dump our nuclear waste.

Watched Charlie Wilson’s War again the other night. Hope we don’t make that mistake again.

Nor repeat the mistakes we made getting involved in our disastrous escapades and follies in Vietnam, Korea, Somalia, Iraq, etc;

Nor, IMHO, even in the tribally primitive fifedoms of Europe, nasty when our ancestors left there, and even more ruined by their globalist bankers and their decadent philosophical traditions that dragged us into their crap twice in the last last century at enormous loss of life and treasure to our country.

Let them all slaughter each other. Anyone who thinks they are really serving our country by going anywhere else in the world to kill or be killed should know better by now. Such things are nothing more than fool’s errands. I wish I and others like me had realized that before we signed up.

I think we all learned a lot about the average muzzie since 9/11. We thought there were radicals and most were normal. We thought they would welcome freedom from Saddam and the Taliban but it turns out they are all pretty much alike. Screw them all.
