It’s really long past time to bring our troops home from Afghanistan. If this doesn’t awaken the higher-ups in the halls of power to the fact that we’re wasting American lives, limbs and a lot of cash in that Hell-hole, even a healthy dose of CPR won’t revive them. From Reuters and MSNBC:
Afghanistan would support Pakistan in case of military conflict between Pakistan and the United States, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said in an interview to a private Pakistani TV channel broadcast on Saturday.
The remarks were in sharp contrast to recent tension between the two neighbors over cross-border raids, and Afghan accusations that Pakistan was involved in killing the chief Afghan peace envoy, former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani, by a suicide bomber on September 20.
“God forbid, If ever there is a war between Pakistan and America, Afghanistan will side with Pakistan,” he said in the interview to Geo television.
“If Pakistan is attacked and if the people of Pakistan needs Afghanistan’s help, Afghanistan will be there with you.”
Read all of it. When, or if, some of this Muslim doctrine will begin to sink into some very dense and very thick politicians’ skulls is anyone’s guess. A Muslim is a Muslim first. He is not allowed, by his understanding of Allah’s law, to form true friendships with an Infidel. Infidels are unclean. We are dirty.
Karzai has revealed the true colors of the World of Islam. After all of our sacrifices to rid Afghanistan of the Taliban, it really makes no diffference.
Bring our troops home.
