Karzai to Obama: GET OUT!

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Rejecting President Obama’s shameless politicization of the war, Afghan president Hamid Karzai has a message for Obama: get out.

Karzai told U.S. Defense Stooge Secretary Leon Panetta just days after a U.S. soldier massacred 16 innocent villagers including women and children:

“Afghanistan is ready to take overall security responsibility.”

President Karzai said the process of handing security from international troops to Afghan forces should be completed in 2013 rather than 2014.

Barry? Barry? Are you listening?

    Obama has his very own My Lai massacre on his hands. The blood of those 16 murdered Afghans is under his carefully manicured fingernails. I hope it’s worth because Obama will have to defend his foolishness to the American people in the presidential debates. Obama owns this war now.

  2. Jim says:

    Enough. A decade. The LONGEST war in U.S. history. Get out. GET OUT.

    Whether he listens or not – damage done. Sooner you leave Changer a lot less damage will happen. Until we’re gone if that happens we’re still there and all we got is talk along with the damage.

  4. Randy Arroyo says:

    The timidity of this president is stunning. Here’s a chance to distinguish himself from presidents past and do what’s right but instead, Obama stands in the shadows afraid of what Limbaugh, Romney and Fox News might say about him. How wrong I was to think he would be a strong leader.

  5. The Real Adam says:

    Think about it like this.

    China invades the Pacific Northwest and occupies Seattle and Portland. They stay for a decade and after ten years, Chinese soldiers start killing innocent civilians. How would you feel? Not good and you would demand the Chinese go home. Same thing for the Afghans.

    Who can blame Karzai? Suddenly I feel compassion for him.

  7. Fran says:

    There are rumblings of the soldier potentially facing the death penalty for his (PTSD) actions.
    Tragedy upon tragedy. Can’t imagine Afghanistan can even stand to wait till 2013 for US troop withdrawal.

  8. Marcus Ybanez says:

    BO’s surge has resulted in a staggering increase of U.S. soldier-to-Afghan civilian violence.

    Some troops are on their 7th and 8th deployment. I wonder if any of this registers to BO as he plays golf and hoops and lollygags with world leaders hosting state dinners? BO seems increasingly detached from the realities of what is happening in Afghanistan.

  9. Big Hank says:

    Barry? Barry? Are you listening?

    Nope. He ain’t listening.

  10. TOM339 says:

    Didn’t Bush invade Afghanistan (and Iraq) ostensibly to find, capture, or kill, Osama bin Laden?

    Alright then. Mission Accomplished. It is time to bring the boys and girls home. There is no reason for President Obama to keep the troops there now.

    Unless we have a secret agreement with Israel to provide assistance when they attack Iran.

  11. Eric Equality Kuntz says:

    Republicans are using Karzai’s understandable frustration with the USA as evidence of some sort of ingratitude.

    Yes, we’ve done so much for Afghanistan and now, Karzai should act like an African tribal leader following his Colonial master into oblivion.

    Karzai is correct. It’s time for the USA to leave. Our presence there is insane and not justifiable by any measure of reality. President Obama is off his rocker to drag our departure out until after the 2012 presidential election.

  12. Insouciant says:

    OBAMA: “We will not be deterred from our mission….”

    What the fuck is he talking about? The Koolaid must be spiked at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

  13. feminazi says:

    As I recall, the date Obama originally asserted for U.S. redeployment of troops was 2012. This was extended to 2013 and then lastly, 2014. Assuming Obama is reelected, will 2014 be extended to 2016, 2020, or 2025? I would not be the least bit surprised if U.S. troops find themselves in Afghanistan in 2050 and beyond. The U.S. just can’t let Afghanistan go. Especially, now that precious minerals such as Lithium was discovered in abundance in the mountains there.
