Why? Why are we still there? Why don’t we just leave, call it a day and a war and save some American and NATO lives. Afghanistan is no better for our being there and is reverting to it’s pre-Soviet self dating back to the 19th Century where there was the “Grand Game,” between Russia and Great Britain.

Really? Were “Considering waiting”?? He won’t sign it. That’s now waiting. That’s being told simply to screw off. Wow have we lost the ability to perform clandestine operations. What fools we’ve become.

Hamid Karzai has been the puppet of the US and UK, and been held in place as the head of state in Afghanistan through some very dubious “elections”. Now Karzai find himself in a position that because he followed US and UK dictation it has made him so unpopular in Afghanistan, that his only hope to stay in power would be to listen to the grievances of the Afghan people.

The Afghan people as in Iraq did not welcome yet another western invasion with “open arms”, as proclaimed by western powers. I am sure that was just an “intelligence failure”. LOL.

Now it so happens that the Afghan people say they want the terrorist raids conducted by the NATO to end. NATO of course, are as always according to them self only concerned with the population of the country they invade. So as with the “open arms” rhetoric, they now say “Karzai doesn’t represent the voice of the Afghan people.”

Quite hard to miss unless you actually believe that Saddam had sophisticated stealth drones that would hammer the US with WMDs. Which also happened to be an “intelligence failure”.

The only reasonable conclusion I can draw when I now see that the statements made by western powers are taken serious, is that there must be a rather unique and unprecedented propaganda machine feeding the population of western countries. Or they suffer of notorious constant amnesia.
