    Afghan president endorses Taliban over USA

    Karzai says he’d ‘choose the Taliban’ over USA

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai says would side with the Taliban if he had to do it all over again.

    In late October, Gen. David H. Petraeus, US Ambassador Karl Eikenberry and other top officials were trying to convince Karzai to back down on an order banning all foreign private security contractors from Afghanistan. The Afghan president decided he had heard enough, according to a new report in The Washington Post.

    Time to go was awhile ago. Billions of dollars and millions of lives later, you have set up a future Sadam. Good job.

    Then let's make it easy for him, let's withdraw our troops and see how long he lasts in his posistion. Either way, I think these places should be left to make their own way and the US should take care of it's own yard before policing other yards.

    So how long has he got to live after saying that? Seems like TPTB will try to replace him.

    Well , he has said similar things before . I do not know what to make of it , because he does lie routinely . I think he says this stuff to try and stay in well with the people he will be left with when we wind down , but there is no way to be sure ..
