Each year I'm flummoxed by the kickoff to our holiday season. Let's bring family and friends together to give thanks for what we have on Thursday, and then trample our fellow man at 5:00 a.m. at a local Walmart to purchase cheap electronics on Friday?
Mr. Karzai, with all due respect, our government at the moment can't even decide how much money will be spent on our own people, on our own needs, on our own security. Please be patient -- and appreciative.
A quiet city in the north of Afghanistan ignited today after yet another NATO night raid reportedly tore another family apart. Thousands of people took to the streets, again chanting, "Death to America!" as they pelted Karzai's billboards with mud and stones.
