Welcoming Corruption: Britain leads the way in Congratulating Karzai after Abdullah drops out because of proven corruption!
Karzai Declared Afghan President
I guess the opium growers, drug lords like his brother, and other corrupt officials must be pretty happy that the election was handed to Karzai despite the corruption and the US stupidly says they will keep working with him! He is damn using us to keep power in his corrupt drug infested regime. What the hell is wrong with us? Karzai handed second term after Afghan election run-off cancelled
Think about this again: I do not know what you think about Ahmed working for the CIA or "rumors" of him being a Drug Lord but think about this! First hearing he is a drug lord makes me wonder what was being discussed in all the pictures I see of him visiting towns and conversing with tribal leaders. Being a a prominent political figure in the southern region of the country with regular visits makes for a lucrative convenient position in the opium world. I refuse to believe it can be ignored though Ahmed denies any involvement. Yeah like the million rigged ballots he didn't rig.
Okay! Ahmed is a drug lord. Him and his profits are probably helping to fund the war against us. Think about it! It gets worse. While returning from a successful mission searching a compound for drugs the helicopter crashed killing 7 troops and as we now know, 3 DEA agents. In the fight after the crash 12 "insurgents" were killed. 14 Americans die in Afghanistan chopper crashes
They were just returning from a successful mission cleaning out opium interests in Ahmed's region. Makes you wonder doesn't it?
Now our commander in chief: He has done his homework in what will be the most important decision he has ever made. He has done his homework dotting the eyes and crossing the T's. He has done his homework and is close to a decision. He has listened to General McChrystal, his advisers, all his joint chiefs, and all involved. He just paid a midnight visit to Dover to Salute the caskets and Honor 18 US soldiers that were killed this week in Afghanistan. Obama never stops impressing me! He is the first US President to go to Dover and honor the returning dead!
Anyway to top it off amidst escalating violence in Afghanistan Obama has sent his Commanders on the ground in Afghanistan province by province and village to village to talk to all tribal leaders find out what they need, what their issues are, and discern how many more troops will be need and what type. Obama take your time! He will do this if anyone can. What if his analysis dictates we leave? Think about it!
I was pretty impressed that President Obama went to Dover, Delaware to honor the 18 troops recently killed in Afghanistan as they were brought off the plane. I know Limbaugh is a so called entertainer but I was sickened when he called it a publicity stunt to make palatable whatever decision he makes on the troop count. I know it will influence his decision but I hope in the form of changing the mission purely to defense and training up Afghanistan to fight for themselves. This is Vietnam x 10 if we are stupid enough to stay there. I reiterate, it is time to start the slow good bye!
