More change you can believe in – Karzai edition
Sensing a bit hesitation in President Obama’s support, Hamid Karzai promised reforms the world can believe it. Among those reforms:
“We want our Taliban brothers and all others to come back and join with us,” he added.
Last I recall, the entire point of going into Afghanistan was to remove those who supported Osama Bin Laden. For those that have obviously forgotten, that was the Taliban specifically.
Now, I don’t blame this specifically on Karzai. Obama brought in his guy to run Afghanistan. He said he needed troops to keep the peace since the Taliban was regaining momentum. Obama, after declaring Afghanistan the only true war we should be in, ignored those military leaders and decided his best course of action to deter the advances the Taliban were making was to do absolutely nothing. This worked in such a way ( draw your own conclusion ), that allowed the Taliban to make very public and aggressive strikes to prevent the national election from occurring. Abdullah then drops out, the election is indeed canceled, just as the Taliban wanted and democracy supporters feared. Karzai then declares to the world he’s willing to work with the Taliban.
Obama, just bring our guys home. You’ve already lost the freakin war that so many people have died for.
