    U.S. Congratulates Karzai on Winning Second Term

    U.S. Congratulates Karzai on Winning Second Term

    U.S. Congratulates Karzai on Winning Second Term - FOXNews.com


    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 Monday ruling ends a two-and-a-half month ordeal wrought with fraud, back-room negotiations and worries that the Afghan government might never regain credibility.



    So just yesterday was it, that the Obama administration was using the elections as an excuse to fiddle without a decision on Afghanistan? That they would not make a decision until after the elections?


    Well. They are over. It's time to do right by those who are in harms way.

    You are more concerned with the timing of a decision than you are with the content of such a decision. That mentality is what got us into the mess in the first place.

    What exactly is the goal in Afghanistan with the additional troops? Are we trying to remove the Taliban from control? Are we ending corruption in the government? Are we forcing the people of Afghan to, for once in their life, fight for control of their country from?

    Or are you for just throwing troops lives away into a pointless war?

    I don't see the point of "liberating" people who don't care to be liberated.

    Hold on a damn minute, I thought Obama considered the Bush puppet Karzai a corrupt leader. Why the congratulations?

    First it's a just war, now it isn't. First we're after al Qaeda, now we're throwing away lives for people that don't want us there. What mission do you think we're on? Liberals wanted bin Laden dead, dead, dead....like right now!

    The troop increase isn't to go after Bin Laden, it's for the strategy to defeat Taliban and "liberate" Afghanistan. That's one the initial reasons for the delay in the increase. The Admin is looking into switching strategies and focusing on Al-Q instead of the Taliban.

    I put liberate in quotes because the corruption of the democratic government hurts the freedom of Afghan more then the Taliban.

    I'm all for annihilating AL-Q and Bin Laden. I am NOT for wasting the lives of soldiers and American tax dollars on trying to liberate a country that doesn't care to be liberated.

    According to the article there wasn't any "congratulations". All that is said is that the US embassy said they "looked forward to working with Karzai to support reform and improve security".

    That's that detailed FoxNews reporting.
