Karzai: You know I have to publicly condemn this act, but, do keep bankrolling our mujahadeen because I want to transfer my commission to a Swiss account. O yeah! Thank you, US taxpayers!

Since life in your country is apparently worth about .45 we'll take $4.05 off your bill. Please send the remaining $383,878,796,542.00 to us immediately. Actually that number goes up with every breath. And it seems most of it's going into your pockets.

Anyone want to gasp at the numbers and get dizzy watching them spin? Forget union busting, want to fix our budget? Let's start here. Stop the GD wars immediately and bring our boys home.

Who's bill? Are you suggesting that somehow Afganastan owes us for destroying their country?

That would be like China invading our country, as a result of a few canadian spent a few months training in montana to become terrorists and bomb china, propping up a president that supports china's interests, then turning around and trying to charge us for it.

Completely irrational.

1 - we can't destroy something that was already destroyed when we arrived
2- in case you had your head in nasty smelly places while the rest of us watched the bush administration destroy our own country, we went in there first to fight OBL and after screwing that up KARZAI ASKED US TO STAY SO WE COULD HELP HIM CLEAN UP HIS COUNTRY AND PUMP BILLIONS INTO HIS BANK ACCOUNT.
3 - that bill

the war is irrational as are its many defenders
sorry you missed the clear and simple point in order to get your snark on

People say it's the US government that is bad.

You are living proof that the American people are dirt.

Good Lordy, the US military is now in the business of killing little kids fetching for firewood in the wilderness and pregnant women attending bazaars and wedding ceremonies?

Sounds like Nam, stinks like Nam, it definitely is another Nam.
02:24 PM on 03/07/2011
and yet you the American people will allow another Nam to happen. Libya.

We need to admit that Afghanistan is a terminal situation that we are never going to improve. How many years does it take for reality to set in? We should pack it up and leave asap. How long after we leave before Karzai is assassinated? I give him less than 30 days.
11:50 AM on 03/07/2011
Which is it?

This article says that Karzai has rejected a US apology for the killing of the nine Afghan boys.

Another article in HuffPost today (Gates: U.S. Afghanistan Involvement Should Continue) says:
"Gates also apologized for the accidental deaths of Afghan children in an air strike last week, and Karzai accepted the apology."

Accepted or rejected: which is it?

My question is: "Who done it?"

All the articles I've seen use the "NATO" or "ISAF" in reference to the air attack. Why not "USAF" or "US Army" or "RAF" or whatever? Is this the US covering its own hindquarters by hiding behind the coalition? Or is the US covering for an ally's mistake/incompetence? Or does Gen. Petreus really have no idea whodunnit?

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, just want to know: what gives?

I am shocked - shocked - that you would have the temerity to level such baseless and slanderizing allegations of venality on the head of Afghanistan's foremost public servant.

P.S. Do not look behind the curtain.

Since Karzai has been taking a stand against this US occupation its atrocities, they have been systematically delegitimizing him. We saw this with Wikileaks releases that wanted to attack his psychological state. So, the puppet is not allowign the puppet master total control.

When will our Empire stop its WAR CRIMES? When it stops being an empire. We are a sick nation to allow our gov't to do all that it has done.
10:56 AM on 03/07/2011
ok, so let's leave Afghanistan 100% and see how long it takes him to accept our apology which we shouldn't be giving anyway!
11:14 AM on 03/07/2011
You are RIGHT! We shouldn't apologize for killing young boys who were barely even born on 9/11. They should apologize to us for getting in the way of our bombs.

If only he rejected US money, US troops and corruption in government!

Actually, I kind of agree with him.  We're paying good money for contractors in Afghanistan.  Why aren't they better at killing the right targets?

Because they can't find them. Because they have no idea who they are really fighting - or why. Because they are testosterone-fueled apes who don't speak the local language, know nothing about the culture and respect nothing but the gun.

Contractors? Is that the new polite word for hired guns and mercenaries?

What about his theft of US tax payers money! This is OK so our citizens can die from a lack of healthcare because it is unaffordable !!!!!! What a joke on us! Just another reason to be against the mismanaged war in Afghanistan!
