    Karzai’s moves haven’t changed.

    I wonder how Karzai will feel when the Taliban stab the Afghan people in the back.

    The feeling is mutual, at least as the Obama administration is concerned.

    Clark, when it comes to war crimes the only real one is losing.

    The US puts in a master willing to betray his own people.
    Now we are surprised he betrays US as well?

    Raise your hand if you did not expect this.

    Sharun, the realtiy of war is much as William Sherman put it “It is good that war is a terrible thing else we might grow too fond of it.” War is horrible but the winners of one get to write the rules, and histories that follow.
    Like it or not, the whole concept of “War crimes” is a modern construct not some natural state of things. The winner of a war gets to decide what is and isn’t a war crime and to whom it is applied.
    .
    Or do you really believe that the Taliban or Serbian soldier, or Somali that commits some “War crime” will actually be punished for it when his own chain of command supports and encourages his actions?
    .
    The stupidity lies with those that think some international court or tribunal not run by the victors of a war has any real power to do anything other than pontificate from a courtroom.

    Limited to going after the camps in the north, and bin Laden and the leadership, not a bad idea. Taking out the whole government, and handing it to Karzai and the clowns, as opposed to the more legitimate Mossoud (sic), was our terrible idea, again.


    Which, who wants to set up an even WORSE situation in Syria? The factions there are 52 pick up, so yep, great idea to keep messing around there.

    Morin screwed up this comic. Karzai should have been picking Uncle Sam’s pocket as he stabbed him in the back.

    “taliban, dope dealers, what difference does it make?”

    dope dealers do not shoot people for having an incorrect beard trim.
    dope dealers do not blow them selves up at checkpoints.
    dope dealers do not stone women because they saw her face.

    Heroin is a scourge that ruins lives, no question.
    But to compare it to the Taliban with it’s active murder policy is a bit off.
    There are degrees of evil.

    The era of Western countries having colonies is over. There used to be economic colonies, and most of those are independent now, except for the poorest. Lately we’ve been trying again under the guise of “democracy” colonies. We tried to do this most recently in Afghanistan and Iraq, with the hope that we could partner with them later in economic goods, i.e., oil and minerals.
    .
    It isn’t working. Those countries on the opposite side of the world (in more ways than one) have cultures and traditions older than ours by far. Only a small number of their people seem to want our status quo.
    .
    Edmund Burke touched on this in his “Speech on Conciliation with the Colonies.” The maintenance of our ideas of government will not stick, just as the British ideas for the American colonies did not. He said,
    “A nation is not governed which is perpetually to be conquered.” Isn’t this the situation, now?
    .
    He also said the application of military measures against unrest is futile: “Conciliation failing, force remains; but force failing, no further hope of conciliation is left.”
    .
    Eventually we will leave Iraq and Afghanistan to their fates, just as previous “conquerors” did, having made things even harder for the people there. The slaughter of innocents will ensue.
    .
    Even though our intentions may have begun as just, evil came of them. Who is to blame? Not the American public as a whole, I think, nor the average soldier. Often America is a large friendly dog in a small room. Every time it wags its tail it knocks over a chair. In these cases, unfortunately, it was countries.
