Karzai talks about “foreign meddling”

| February 4, 2013

Stars & Stripes reports that Afghan President Hamid Karzai is doing his level best to end the war in Afghanistan;

He said in an interview with The Guardian and ITV News that it’s possible western forces are being drawn down in Afghanistan because international leaders realized “they were fighting in the wrong place” and that he expects fighting to diminish once NATO forces withdraw.

Karzai said Helmand province – where the U.S-led coalition has lost more soldiers than anywhere else – was more peaceful before British troops arrived in 2006. He says the greatest threat to his country’s prospects is foreign meddling.

Yeah, Hamid would still be in exile in Paris if it wasn’t for “foreign meddling”, and he’s going to be praying for a little “foreign meddling” in 2015 when the Taliban with whom he’s been negotiating poorly are banging on his bedroom door. We should make that inevitable day arrive a couple of years early and give him wish.

    I am quite certain he has a private aircraft on standby, fueled and ready, 24/7 just in case we do leave. He would be wise to get one ready if he does not. There is no chance he will survive for long without foreign meddling.

    He has no popular support, and his country has no national will to stand on its own. Consequently it will be a sorry state of affairs not long after US troops are back on home soil and out of that sh1thole.

    He doesn’t want foreign meddling? Then we need to stop sending our foreign aid money.

  3. Devtun says:

    Hamid probably already has a posh flat in London, villa in Paris, resort cabin in Zurich already picked out…thanks American taxpayers.

  4. Common Sense says:

    We should bring home every single American TODAY. Obama has seen to it that we’ve already lost so there’s no need to spill yet more American blood for people who don’t appreciate what we’ve given during the past 10 years. And withdrawal means every dime too.

    When we pull out, we need to crater the runway and burn all transport assets in place…..and our last snatch and grab should be him. We can leave him tied to a pole in a town square.

  6. NHSparky says:

    As soon as he tries to bail come 2015, the plane takes off and instead of going west, heads east over Warziristan.

    The only choice he should get at that point is whether he leaves the plane with or without a parachute.

    hopefully when Hamid tries to flee in the 6 months after we withdraw, his frequent flyer miles are all blacked out.

  8. Fen says:

    What a douche. If you don’t want America to meddle in your country, don’t let terrorists operate freely in your country and murder 3000 American civilians.

  9. Redacted1775 says:

    Yeah, foreign meddling like Quds and ISI…

  10. Redacted1775 says:

    Odd how he doesn’t mention them.

  11. NHSparky says:

    Considering they’ll determine whether he lives or dies 24 months from now, yeah, you’d be rather reluctant to criticize the ones who hold your fate in their hands.
