Here is what the USA should tell Mr. Karzai in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS:
"Mr. Karzai, you get YOUR PEOPLE under control IMMEDIATELY, or else we will PULL ALL OF OUR TROOPS OUT IMMEDIATELY and TO HELL WITH THIS 'NATION-BUILDING' THING. One more thing... WE WILL AERIAL BOMB ANYWHERE and ANYTIME we feel necessary, ONCE WE PULL OUR TROOPS OUT!"
