    Afghan President Rejects U.S. Apology Over Killings

    It's high time Karzai and General Petraeus had a come to Jesus sit down talk,( So to speak).

    We all know Karzai is as corrupt the rest of the Middle East leaders from Royal families to the Muammar Gaddafi types Karzai just does his stealing etc. behind the phony claims of Democracy.

    Our people in essence this crook in office and now he gets our people killed with ridiculous rules of engagement and I understand that when civilians are killed it's a bad thing but I am sick of us backing crooks and giving them billions and them then giving us crap.

    On the subject of Afghanistan when are we going to shut down the drug trade. Is this another one of those items Obama can't call by it's real name like terrorism?

    President Bush did basically nothing about it and now Obama is sitting on his hands.


    Afghan President Rejects U.S. Apology Over Killings - FoxNews.com

    KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghanistan's president on Sunday rejected a U.S. apology for the mistaken killing of nine Afghan boys in a NATO air attack and said civilian casualties are no longer acceptable.

    According to a statement from his office, Hamid Karzai told Gen. David Petraeus, the top commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan, that expressing regret was not sufficient in last week's killing of the boys, ages 12 and under, by coalition helicopters.

    Then we should give him a list of the last twelve NATO troops to lose their lives fighting for his country and its people.

    This was a terrible accident. We do everything we can to prevent such incidents and Karzai is well aware of that.

    I don't remember them asking to be invaded, so your righteous indignation over him not appreciating your sacrifice to impose your value system on them may go unappreciated. Just tellin ya. I guess they were really tall 12 year olds with AK-shaped wood they had gathered.

    Karzai did not come up with the rules of engagement. McChrystal and Petraeus did.

    I am sick of us backing crooks and giving them billions and them then giving us crap.
    No doubt. But when Karzai first came to power he was basically the most viable candidate and we stuck with him.

    On the subject of Afghanistan when are we going to shut down the drug trade. Is this another one of those items Obama can't call by it's real name like terrorism?
    How about you do your own damn research? Obama's mentioned the drug trade, but we have **** on our hands just dealing with our own drug problems much less Afghanistans. And drug money is hardly the only thing keeping the insurgency going.

    Afghanistan was not invaded and they are not being occupied today.

    Don't you remember the celebrations of the Afghan people after the Taliban and pals were defeated in '02?

    The civilian deaths are a direct result of the methods and tactics used by the Taliban and their jihadi pals.

    BTW, there was no functioning Government to ask in Afghanistan in 2001.

    Karzai owes his job to that sacrifice. You're post is ridiculous.

    Sad. The military isnt responsible even though they pulled the trigger?

    That was funny. Thanks for the laughs.

    Seriously though, obviously we have a different understanding of what an invasion and occupation is.

    We did take responsibility. The reason it happened is the methods and tactics used by the Taliban and their jihadi pals
