Karzai Takes The High Ground. Not.

leave a comment »

I know he’s preaching to his own rabble, but there’s something utterly outrageous about Karzai’s “end of his rope” response to the mass-killing of Afghan citizens by a soldier who – it now seems – was himself at the “end of his rope”. That is not to excuse the soldier’s actions, but they were not those of a sane man. US and NATO soldiers have been bleeding to keep Karzai in the power-game business and keep the Taliban at bay for over a decade. In my humble view, if he wants to score political points at our expense, we should leave him to his fate – which would probably not be dissimilar to that experienced by another blow-hard in North Africa.
