Afghan Prez Infuriated With the Capture of Taliban #2

The longer that the war goes on, the more I see our so called leaders, and “allies” weakening to the never ending will of the Taliban. Back in late January, US General McChrystal made the following statement.

“As a soldier, my personal feeling is that there’s been enough fighting,” said McChrystal.

“I believe that a political solution to all conflicts is the inevitable outcome. And it’s the right outcome,” he added.

Asked is he would be content to see Taliban leaders in a future government in the country, the general said: “I think any Afghans can play a role if they focus on the future, and not the past.”

Apparently our “ally” Karzai has no problem with kissing up to the Taliban either. The Taliban will use any talks just as Hamas and Hezbollah does with Israel. They will use them to stall, and regroup. A few questions that come to mind here are, do US “leaders” have the will to win?  The other question is, does Karzai support the Islamist group over America? I think that the answers are clear. No more nation building please.

Afghan held peace talks with captured Taliban boss
By DEB RIECHMANN and KATHY GANNON

KABUL – Afghan officials say the Afghan government was holding secret talks with the Taliban’s No. 2 when he was captured last month in Pakistan.

A close aide to President Hamid Karzai says the arrest infuriated the Afghan leader. It also raised the question of whether the United States is willing to back peace discussions with top Taliban leaders who harbored the al-Qaida terrorists behind the Sept. 11 attacks.

Karzai’s aide says the president “was very angry” when he heard that Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar was picked up by the Pakistanis with an assist from U.S. intelligence.

The confidante, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of their sensitive nature, says Baradar had also “given a green light” to participating in a three-day peace assembly that Karzai is hosting next month.

    Well I guess thats it then….we can't shoot the enemy…we can't capture the enemy…we can't keep our allies from talking to our enemies….maybe our allies are our enemy.

    This author's opinion is otherwise. He/she thinks that Baradar was a good person permeable to reason. Check the link:

    It looks like this dickwad – Karzai is almost as naive as the P.T.O.T.U.S. (post-turtle president) who, along with the imbeciles in Israel, e.g. Bibi Netanyaho and members of the Knesset, would do such things as transfer unlawful enemy combatants to the domestic courts at law, with full legal constitutional rights as U.S. citizens or more, and allow avowed enemies / terrorists access to foreign media while in prison.

    (IsraelNN.com)
    "The High Court on Thursday will discuss a petition by MK Michael Ben-Ari and activist Itamar Ben-Gvir demanding that arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti be sent to solitary confinement. The two are filing the petition because of Barghouti's continuing incitement against Israel in interviews he gives from prison. Ben-Ari and Ben-Gvir, along with several groups, are filing the petition to ensure that Barghouti is unable to have access to foreign media."

    Karzai is just another highly-paid and "protected" Sales-Puppet ("poolitician") working diligently for the usual Sales-Masters (aka the usual suspects) in Big Oil… a former UNOCOL Oil Executive in the United States, Karzai was sent and foisted upon the Afghan people FOR ONE THING AND FOR ONE THING ONLY: TO ENSURE THAT OIL PIPELINE THROUGH AFGHANISTAN GOT BUILT, PRONTO!

    NO ONE and nothing can -or will – be allowed to get in the way of THAT!

    That is THE only el primo #1 reason for the Afghanistan "mission" in the first, second, and third places!

    The plans to invade Afghanistan were SIGNED by Bush three days before 9/11!!!

    Just google it for the real media reports of same – AP, etc – if you still find yourselves unable to believe it!

    After all, WE CREATED THE TALIBAN! in the first place!

    WE hired Osama in Lyin directly, from the Saudomite oil families, to hire, train, and lead a group of "Muhajidin" (jihadis) that we paid for!

    We financed them.

    We sent out flyers across the islamic world: "COME, SONS OF ISLAM! FIGHT THE GODLESS RUSSIANS IN AFGHANISTAN! DO IT FOR ALLAH (and the great pay and benefits! We only want the oil, and will set up your wives and sons in comfy resorts, specially built for you, safely across the border with the help of our Pakistani ISI allies as well!)

    We (the CIA) signed their paychecks!!!

    WE provided them with the Stinger missiles to shoot down them "evil empire" (Christian) Russkie's attack-helicopters!

    NOW WE PAY KARZAI TO GIT US THE OIL, PRONTO!

    And our soldiers still DIE as gullible enforcers for the oil companies!

    SO:

    "Never Forget."

    PS/hint: there's an agenda and a timetable to git that there oil, and a deadline that gits interrupted-like whens we accidentally arresticates these here Talibanners too early!

    That is why their Sales-Puppet ("politician") Karzai is "infuriated" on behalf of his Sales-Masters now!

    😉

    We should just drill for our own oil, build nuclear power plants and tell the Islamic world to take a walk.
