Is Hamid Karzai a smack freak?

That certainly seems to be what former UN Envoy Peter Galbraith was suggesting on MSNBC this morning.  Let’s watch:

Well, that might explain some of his weirdness, although the kind of diatribes he engages in seem more likely to come from a crack head.

This story is “Devel0ping”, as they say.

    Dicktators, including wannabees like Stevie Spiteful, are drunk on power – and that’s the truth.

    This is actually a pretty interesting story if it pans out… we are supposed to be helping to clean up the drug trade there, I thought.

    I just hate losing young men & women over this kind of hopeless hypocrisy 😦

    I’m not disagreeing, I just want to make sure I receive that which you’re sending. Which hypocrisy were you specifically thinking of? (I really am asking solely to follow your gist.)

    Brian – The drug thing is hypocrisy — I thought we were supposed to be helping Afghans clean all that stuff up. (Not to mention how Karzai’s been raving about joining the taliban…)

    It just seems like they are dying for a lie 😦 (Full disclosure, the son of one of my friends is over there, so I’m a little sensitive about it.)

    ’K, got it; Thanx.

    I truly hope your friend’s son makes it back healthy and hale.

    Yeah but I hear Hamid gets a great deal on the stuff from his bro, Ahmed. That could also explain why, in 8-years, Karzai hasn’t prosecuted a single major Afghan opiate baron. Not one. None, nada, zilch.

    There was a tactical agreement by NATO that it was taliban first, opium next (whenever that is). Karzai doesn’t have the typical ‘look’ of an addict, so I suspect this is very personal – Karzai/Galbraith hate each others guts. NTL, to think the Queen gave this guy an honourary knighthood in ’03 is beyond tasteless.

    You know, there are similarities here with Ngo Dihn Diem`s period of leadership in South Vietnam. Both Diem/Karzai had brothers closely connected to distributing huge amounts of drugs and making millions, had people in cabinet who were drug czars, both had disdain for ‘democracy and elections’, both thoroughly corrupt, both had very unstable governments under the U.S.A.

    Diem was left alone in the end, assassinated along with his brother by his countrymen.

    Peter Galbraith is the biggest fool and seems to be on drugs. He is the one who got kicked out byt Ban Gereneral Secretary for deliberately veering the election results against a favourite candidate. It is a known fact. Nothing to add there. The fool should be the last one to talk, after all we all know his his sinister role in Iraq and the oil scum. Pathetic. We Afghans s tick by our president no matter what. Good that he uses drugs, he should’ve been on drugs from the begining. Some one is finally showing its true colours. Karzai has never betrayed America, Afghans don’t betray friends easily, we simply don’t. America (policy-wise) is known for its prefedious character. Karzai feels betrayed, he should! Now this scum bag (Peter) is accusing him of drug abuse. He was a hero and today he is an enemy. Tough!

    Get alife Galbraith, you looser.

    Yet another reason to get out of Afghanistan. I stopped my support after the election fraud and the pro-rape bill. Now this. Can anyone remind me what we’re doing there again?

    Stricker, get a dictionary you putz. Karzai is a warlord. Those who prop him up, like that bastard Dostum, are murderous warlords. Those he’s fighting, like that bastard Hekmatyar, are murderous warlords. Their stock in trade is treachery and betrayal. That’s how they hop from one side to the other so effortlessly. Afghans don’t betray friends easily? Bullshit! The government deserves its title as a “criminal enterprise.” All we’ve done is waste eight years there babysitting an unresolved civil war for a greedy, predatory bunch of scum who oppress their own people. Sooner or later it’ll be Karzai hanging from a short rope at the end of a tank barrel.

    Stricker – Are you Aghani? If so, maybe you can shed some light on how long are we expected to stay there and prop up Karzai. Much as I’d like to see Afghanistan become a modern democratic state, it doesn’t seem to be in the cards.

  13. 13 stricker Wednesday, April 7, 2010 at 9:05 am

    MoS, you prat, you forget that it was the U.S. who brought Dostum and rest and imposed them on Afghanistan not Karzai who was brought himself by U.S.. Did you forget the U.S. soldiers commiting war crimes along with their pal Dostum? Get your facts right. What ever happens in Afghanistan is the result of U.S. making. This is all a political game, the U.S. well knows the capacity and capability within Karzai to pit him against warlords (whom the U.S. support parallel to Karzai) in the name of corruption etc. You are an idiot to think the U.S. (foreign policy) is inoccent.

    JJ,

    You wont leave as of that soon as you might think. The great game is still at play. Don’t get distracted by these BS.


Wait. What?
