    So now it's OK for the US to invade countries to take control of trade, economical, and geographical resources?

    That's that detailed FoxNews reporting.
    KABUL -- The United States and its allies have congratulated President Hamid Karzai on winning a second term following a proclamation by the country's election commission.......

    The British government and the United Nations also issued statements of congratulations.
    That's what I read.

    Well, maybe it's time then....cause Obama is "shifting strats" as Commander in Chief....to establish timelines from Congress. Benchmarks so we can all play Monday morning QB and decide whether we're winning or not. And speaking of winning, if we're switching strats probably means the current strat(that Obama sent McChrystal over to employ) isn't working or is being "lost."

    Where is Harry Reid with the "war is lost?"

    Where is John Murtha's cries of murder when Obama drones kill innocents?

    Where are the funding games and timeline demands from this Congress?

    Where is the first benchmark so prevalent and necessary during Iraq's tough days?

    Oh...here......I found where the Democrats are:

    "Whatever decision you make, we'll support it." from Harry Reid.

    Oh look...Hillary:

    "It's important that at the end of the day that the president makes a decision that he believes in,"

    ........a decision "he" believes in, is that what Hillary said? Remember when she thought there were 545 Commanders in Chief? Remember in 2007 when she tried to revoke her authorization for war in Iraq?

    Oh looksy......this from the media dariling Robert Gibbs:

    "The president is going to make a decision popular or unpopular based on what he thinks is in the best interests of the country,"

    Really, Bob? Well, don't that make ALL of you hypocritical jokes! What circus clowns we now have running the show, what hypocrites!

    Of course not, but when has that stopped us before?

    Karzai IS a puppet, at least in my opinion, that Obama is obviously not responsible for. Karzai was puppet of the Bush administration.

    Was he democratically elected for another term? It appears so, so I guess Obama will be forced to deal with him.

    But if he is somehow just shill for the US Gov, then it will probably make it even easier for Obama to do... whatever it is he plans on doing over there.

    Congratulations Karzai.

    Afghanistan had its chance (twice) and the same person emerged victorious. Any decent Government would have to congratulate him, there is no other option.

    Not if he's really a cheater and a puppet.

    Judging by facts of your foreign policies, the clowns running the show BEHIND the scenes are the same as before...
