As U.S. Continues To Spend Fortune In Afghanistan, Karzai Turns To China

225px-hamid_karzai_2004-06-14Afghan President Hamid Karzai has spent years denouncing the United States as we have continued to pour hundreds of billions into this country (and his corrupt family and government). Now, Karzai has called on China to come in and guarantee security in the country as he continues to call on the United States to get out. Despite these consistent attacks on the U.S. and Americans as “demons”, the Obama Administration continues to put our soldiers in harms way and spend money that is badly needed at home in this country. So, while the Administration is cutting back on FAA towers and slowing air travel, we will continue to spend wildly in a country seeking to replace us with China. Brilliant.


This week, Karzai praised China as the world’s emerging dominant superpower and largest economy. He described his country as the “graveyard of empires” which apparently is meant to include the United States. Karzai wants China to come into the country to stabilize security and wants the U.S. out, particularly after a series of operations led to high levels of civilian deaths.

Our insistence on continuing to dump money and manpower into this country is baffling. The situation is worsening on the ground and anti-American sentiments continue to be high. Yet, our own economic crisis does not cause any reexamination of these foreign operations. Neither party wants to be blamed for a failure in Afghanistan so we continue to pump money and men into operations into the country — even after reports showing huge amounts of aid disappearing into the pockets of corrupt officials.

Of course, the abuses of China’s security services and denial of basic rights matters little to Karzai. They are simply the next deep pocket for the government to seek in its reliance on foreign aid.

  1. Of course US don’t want to get out. CIA, FBI and DHS need the drugs money to stage terrorist events against American people. That’s clearly obvious.

  2. I would guess that Mr.Karzai hasn’t given any thought to the fact that China might get rid of him as first order of the day.
    So what do we do to get the U.S. out of that smelly hell hole?

  3. We need to get out of Afghanistan now. The number of IEDs is increasing. Bomb patrols clear a road, and a week later they are back. The first coalition casualty in Afghanistan is from our community. He was killed with two others by friendly fire when a bomb went off course and hit their position.

    When Darren visited here last week we went out to see where he is buried. Since Master Sgt. Donnie Davis and his two buddies were killed in 2001, there have been more than 3,100 allied deaths there so far, and counting. I doubt anyone knows for certain how many are crippled in body and mind due to this war. Osama bin Laden is dead, we have intelligence on his organization, and there is no further reason for us to be in Afghanistan. The place were empires go to die.

    From Wikileaks War Logs, IED attacks are mapped from 2004-2009.

  4. It is where empires go to die, so true.

    JT’s characterization of our continued involvement there, as baffling is such an understatement as to be tragically humorous.

    Here in our country, we are going broke, we borrow 2/3’ds of what we spend in federal dollars, the national debt will soon reach the point of impossible repayment. We have people starving here, and our public money woes are the #1 concern of the American people.

    We have literally nothing to gain in that country and so damn much to lose and is virtual money sink; they want us the fk out, and the American people want us the fk out.

    So the pathological insistence from our supposed representative leaders that we stay there is simply institutional insanity.
    Didn’t candidate Obama say one of his priorities was to get us out of there?
    Who voted for Obama again?

    All I can say is WTF??

  5. Afghan President Hamid Karzai has spent years denouncing the United States as we have continued to pour hundreds of billions into this country (and his corrupt family and government).

    Perhaps that begs the question “did we really go there for the reasons official spin said we did?”

    A poem to enlighten:

    “Jack and Jill went up the hill
    each had a dollar and a quarter
    Jill came back with two and a half
    do you think they went up for water?”

  6. We should leave today!
    Does anybody think that this community organizer we elected as President is perhaps just a bit in over his head?
    Why? Can anybody with a coherent mind (Lindsey Graham does not qualify) explain why we are still in Afghanistan?

  7. We should have been out of Afghanistan years ago. Then again, we should have never been in Iraq and should have been in Saudi Arabia years ago too. You smell that? Smells just like graft taking precedent over statesmanship.

  8. When he visited the White House he was eating off of Corel. Why would he turn to china? Am I missing something here? He seems like a modern guy.

  9. We never should have gone to Afghanistan in the first place. The goal was the Caspian Sea pipeline for the oil companies. That goal has not been achieved.

  10. Can you do a story on racial profiling in Connecticuts so called “Justice” system???

  11. Karzai is another Castro.
    He is done using us. Maybe we should leave, and I am becoming convinced it’s not a bad idea, Let China spend tons of money there, but then again they have very strict opinions on corrupt leaders and deal with them with extreme predjudice . Karzai may be sorry to get his wish. China wouldn’t be worried about civilian or military casualties or political ones for that matter.
    But then we know this is all about oil. Build the Keystone pipeline, and let the middle east nations who hold us hostage over oil, pound sand..
    China sure as hell can’t feed these countries, they aren’t able to adequately feed their own people.
    We should have tied the price of food to these countries to the price they charge us for oil long ago. We would be a lot better off financially than we are.

  12. Nal: Ya gotta employ Pig Latin. itchinBayDog had to employ it. astardBay is a word that wont pass mutard. It seems prejudiced against two well known words describing dogs. itchinBayDog said that she was gonna rename herself “Female Complaining Dog” but that the Pig Latin ruse was more fun and it mocked WordPress. But FartinDog gets his name through the WordPress censor so go figure. Whats worse, a dog that farts or one that complains. I guess the answer to that is where you stand in the dogpac. I usually bark and barf off to the outside of the pac so as to not bother the others.

  13. The large question is whether we and the world were better off when the Soviets occupied Afghanistan. I say yes. We were dumb to try to get them kicked out. We supported the Muslim Brotherhood and guys like The Doctor, whose name was al Zawari. So now we got al qaedda entrenched when Soviets with their tanks were trying to let women go to med school there. Jimmy Carter was a problem starter. I thnk that we need to employ the old bumper sticker from the Vietnam War and change a name. So its:
    Obama, Pull Out Now, Like Your Father Should Have.

    Perhaps we could pay the Russians to invade Afghanistan again. There is such a thing as Zones of Interest. That is their Zone, its not my job to keep the muslims from killing everyone and denying women the right to go to med school. We would not want the Russians in Mexico trying to stop the drug trade. Zones of interest matter.

  14. I agree, let them have their honeymoon with China. That relationship would soon sour, as China does not have a nice guy reputation to protect like the US.
    Of what I know about China, and its dealings with other countries, it would be a basturd, would not take any sht, and properly bully the bully that Karzai is, as well as his country.
    I suspect after the first few IEDs blew up their soldiers, the velvet glove would come off, reveal a mailed fist. I would like to see how that empire deals with the black hole that Afghanistan is.
