There’s crazy and then there is Karzai crazy. Afghan President Hamid Karzai spoke this weekend and accused the United States of colluding with . . . the Taliban. It was an odd accusation from a man who said that he wished that he had joined the Taliban against the United States as American soldiers were dying in the field and the American people were pouring billions into this corrupt family and country. Notably, however, Karzai does put the lie to the Administration’s heralding how the President is trying to pull out troops from Afghanistan when reports indicated that the Administration has been trying to get Karzai to let more troops stay in the country.
Karzai insists that the U.S. wants more attacks to occur to justify keeping troops in the country — a reflection of the private pressure from the Administration to keep troops in the country. Karzai announced “Those bombs that went off in Kabul and Khost were not a show of force to America. They were in service of America. It was in the service of the 2014 slogan to warn us if they (Americans) are not here then Taliban will come . . . In fact those bombs, set off yesterday in the name of the Taliban, were in the service of Americans to keep foreigners longer in Afghanistan.”
Of course, we will continue to pour money into the country and the Karzai family coffers. Despite the overwhelming unpopularity of our presence, no one wants to leave the appearance of a failure in our war in the country.
Yes, it is absurd to think of the U.S. collaborating with the Taliban for attacks. In the last day, two more Americans were killed by an insider attack. However, there remains a disconnect between the President heralding his determination to pull out troops (which should have occurred at the beginning of his term) and the reports of our being forced to leave the country.
For his part, Defense Secretary Hagel went out of his way to praise Karzai and simply noted his claim “wouldn’t make a lot of sense.” In other words, sure he is crazy but he is U.S. approved crazy.
Of course, it is certifiably crazy to see any discernible plan in Afghanistan. Karzai makes the joker look remarkably sane:

I really like your wordpress template, where did you get a hold of
Your site doesn’t render appropriately on my i phone – you may wanna try and repair that
Music started playing any time I opened this site, so annoying!
I believe one of your adverts triggered my internet browser
to resize, you may well want to put that on your blacklist.
I just added this web site to my rss reader, excellent stuff.
Can not get enough!
This is a excellent web site, would you be interested in doing an interview regarding how you designed it?
If so e-mail me!

Hello I am so excited I found your site, I really found you by mistake,
while I was researching on Google for something else,
Nonetheless I am here now and would just like to say many thanks for a marvelous post and a all
round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all at
the moment but I have saved it and also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will
be back to read much more, Please do keep up the awesome job.
Admiring the time and energy you put into your site and in depth information you provide.
It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while
that isn’t the same out of date rehashed information.
Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS
feeds to my Google account.
Greetings! I’ve been following your web site for some time now
and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out
from Dallas Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the great job!
I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
A couple of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?
I am curious to find out what blog system you happen to be utilizing?
I’m having some small security issues with my latest website and I’d like to find something more secure.
Do you have any suggestions?
Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment
(it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole
thing. Do you have any suggestions for rookie blog writers?
I’d definitely appreciate it.
Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site.
It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual
appeal. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this.
Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Chrome.
Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and
sources back to your blog? My blog site is in the exact same area of interest as yours and
my users would truly benefit from some of the information you present here.
Please let me know if this alright with
you. Many thanks!
Hi there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must
say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
Many thanks, I appreciate it!
Superb blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any user discussion
forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get feed-back
from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.
If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!
Hey! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out
and tell you I truly enjoy reading your posts. Can you suggest
any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same topics?
Thanks for your time!
Do you have a spam issue on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was
wanting to know your situation; we have created some nice practices and we are looking to exchange methods with
other folks, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.
Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your site.
You have some really good articles and I feel I would be
a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off,
I’d absolutely love to write some material for your blog in
exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested.
Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think about if you added some great photos or videos
to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content
is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could undeniably be
one of the greatest in its field. Wonderful blog!
Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out.
Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks a lot
Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then
most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content
seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do
with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
The style and design look great though! Hope you get the
problem resolved soon. Cheers
With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
My site has a lot of completely unique content
I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a
lot of it is popping it up all over the internet
without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being
ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.
Have you ever considered publishing an ebook or guest authoring
on other sites? I have a blog based upon on the same
subjects you discuss and would really like to have
you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would value
your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.
Hello! Someone in my Myspace group shared this site with us so I
came to take a look. I’m definitely loving
the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this
to my followers! Great blog and terrific style and design.
Awesome blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start
my own website soon but I’m a little lost on
everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress
or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
Any ideas? Thank you!
My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
Does your website have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail.
I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be
interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward
to seeing it grow over time.
It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button!
I’d certainly donate to this superb blog! I guess for now i’ll settle
for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
I look forward to brand new updates and will share
this site with my Facebook group. Talk soon!
Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored to tears at work so
I decided to check out your website on my iphone
during lunch break. I enjoy the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get
home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my
cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow,
very good blog!
Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me
an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog
by the way!
At this time it appears like BlogEngine is the best blogging platform available
right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you
are using on your blog?
Wonderful post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more
on this subject? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further.
Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding
one? Thanks a lot!
When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Hello! This is my first visit to your blog!
We are a collection of volunteers and starting a new project in a community in
the same niche. Your blog provided us useful information to work on.
You have done a outstanding job!
Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m
looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me
in the direction of a good platform.
Hey! This post couldn’t be written any better!
Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this.
I will forward this page to him. Pretty sure he will have a good
read. Many thanks for sharing!
Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving
us something enlightening to read?
Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
to tell someone!
Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if
it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of
your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar
one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?
If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
This design is incredible! You definitely know how
to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos,
I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more
pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Excellent work!
Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but
after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
Anyways, I’m definitely happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!
Howdy! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group?
There’s a lot of folks that I think would really
appreciate your content. Please let me know.
Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give
you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!
Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.
Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in
Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start.
Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks
Greetings! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that
might be able to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions,
please share. Thank you!
I’m not that much of a online reader to be honest but your blogs really nice,
keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back in the future.
All the best
I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
Did you create this website yourself or did you
hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer
back as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from.
Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one!
It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout
and design. Superb choice of colors!
Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few
of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its
a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers
and both show the same outcome.
Hi are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m
trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding expertise to make your
own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!
Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have
no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
Hello! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok.
I’m absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.
Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins
to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about
losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any tips?
Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search
Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
If you know of any please share. Many thanks!
I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup?
I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive.
Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading extremely slow for me.
Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
Hey there! I’m at work surfing around your blog from
my new iphone 4! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog
and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the great work!
Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless,
just wanted to say excellent blog!
Together with everything which seems to be developing inside this specific
area, your viewpoints are actually quite radical. Even so,
I beg your pardon, because I can not give credence to your whole plan, all
be it radical none the less. It seems to us that your opinions are generally not totally rationalized and in actuality you are your self not really entirely convinced of the
point. In any event I did enjoy examining it.
I do love the way you have presented this specific difficulty
plus it really does supply us a lot of fodder for consideration.
On the other hand, because of what precisely I have personally seen, I
just trust when other feedback stack on that individuals continue to be
on issue and don’t start on a tirade associated with the
news of the day. Yet, thank you for this superb point and while I can not go along with this in totality, I value the point of view.
A large percentage of of what you point out is astonishingly precise and that makes me
wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously.
This particular piece really did switch the light on for
me as far as this particular subject matter goes. But at this
time there is just one issue I am not too comfy with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual core
theme of the issue, let me see just what all the rest of your readers have to point
The very root of your writing while sounding reasonable initially, did not really sit very well with me
after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you managed to make me
a believer unfortunately only for a short while. I still
have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and
one might do well to help fill in those gaps.
In the event you actually can accomplish that, I would surely
Throughout the great pattern of things you actually get an A
for effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually misplaced me was first in
all the particulars. As they say, the devil is in the details…
And it could not be more true at this point. Having said that,
let me reveal to you precisely what did deliver the results.
Your article (parts of it) is actually quite
convincing and that is possibly why I am making an effort in order to opine.
I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that.
Next, whilst I can certainly notice the jumps in logic you make, I am
definitely not convinced of how you appear to unite your points which inturn help to make the
final result. For right now I will yield to your
position however hope in the future you link your facts much better.
