Karzai wants 'at least $2 billion' a year from US

Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Tuesday said he wanted "at least $2 billion" a year from the United States after it withdraws its troops in 2014.

Karzai said the US should specify in a partnership agreement to be signed between his country and the US how much money it will give to Afghanistan after they leave.

"They (US) say we will give you money, but will not specify the amount. We say give us less, but write it down," Karzai told a group of university professors and students in Kabul.

At that price, we could safely turn the whole latrine into a parking lot and have money left over. It might be a good object lesson for the Paki’s next door.

There isn't a more profitable undertaking for any country than to declare war on the United States and to be defeated.

For free? No way. Karzai and the rest of the goat-humpers can kiss it.

Give us an equivalent value in opium and/or oil. Then, we can talk.

Get the money from Red China, Karzai. After all, you gave them the oil contracts.

To Hilterly and obammy, our enemies are our friends. Pay ‘em! They will kill us.

I say turn Afghanistan over to the taliban and rake them if they dare mess with us again. Enough of playing stupid to the Muzzies with the Rinos (McCain, King and Graham) and the other side of the treasonous aisle.

When Karzai first came on the scene, I was in his corner. Now days, he’s a complete and utter disappointment and enemy to the US. Karzai can sit and spin.

Your problem is that you are trying to use logic.

Common sense in American politics went out of the door the day we joined the UN.

Yep.

He should have listened to me when I advocated going in, smashing everything flat, and getting out again.

Nation building is the dumbest thing we've ever tried to do as a Nation. Ranks right up there with election a Socialist President.

If you will take 500 million, I will subit the offer for you.

The answer is NO...Heck No! The blood and missing limbs and body parts of our good soldiers, so you might be free, paid whatever price. There is no debt owed....there never was.

Let Karzi and his people wallow and sink for all I care...he had an opportunity to completely free his people... You kick us out...you don't get one dime!

I'm just sorry we didn't bomb the entire country and get rid of the stench of Islam altogether there. The people have zip-zero hope otherwise of every having a better life...none.

Nation building only works once a nation has been utterly defeated and the will of it’s people to resist completely broken. That did not happen in either Afgan or Iraq. Lots of us knew after the first battle of Fa-lu-ga that the mission was toast.

I take that as sarcasm. Bush had the Taliban on the ropes and all but defeated.

Obama has seized defeat out of the jaws of victory. As soon as Obama instituted his new crazy and defeatist rules of engagement our casualty rate more than doubled and we began to lose control of the situation.

How can you resist?
