With Karzai playing games with us and the Taliban, I wonder whether the time has come for us to pull out and let the Afghans settle their own affairs — enough of our troops slaughtered for a losing cause!

Yes, this IS beginning to look very much like the Vietnam mess from which we finally moved away and now are doing business, etc. there.

Obviously Karzai can’t run the show and we are seen as foreign invaders. Enough already!

I suspect that the Afghans will make the Taliban behave or else become the Afghan enemy #1! Certainly we are not loved as occupiers droning from on high.

The news announcement below is more or less the last word so far as what we can do with this corrupt crook — brother dealing drugs and all — his police hated more than the Taliban, apparently.

What do you think?
