Switcheroo! Afghan President Hamid Karzai

The Hamid Karzai remarks were the latest sign of tension between the two administrations, despite President Obama's meeting with Hamid Karzai over the weekend during his unexpected trip to Afghanistan. The Afghan president last month invited Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Kabul, where he delivered an anti-American speech inside the palace. Hamid Karzai has also recently visited China and Iran. (Quote from the Internet-Associated Press)We sure know ahead of the game, that Iran is Anti-Israel. How could he do this? I thought he was Pro-democracy!

Now this does not sit well, with any American, I am sure. No where, do we expect a man who’s been here to America(whom we have helped before), to deliver anti-American speeches to Iran and China or have them delivered to him. It does not sit well with me, to have Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, going into this guys castle at Kabul, and bad mouthing us, with anti-American speech. Puts Hamid Karzai, right up there, on the same level, with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, where it becomes obvious, they both, think ill of us(It’s no newsflash what Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, believes about us) You got to be very careful, entertaining, enemies of one's friends. It can look like, all may not be above board. There is a tendency to gossip, about the one not present. And we know gossip can get vitriolic, rapidly. Just to be on the safe side, I repeat, one does not entertain, one's friends, enemies.

I guess, it’s only a matter of time, before Hamid Karzai will make himself known. Like, who’s side, he is really on. It’s just too bad we have to side off, but we do. That way we know, who is for us and who is against us.  He was formerly for us, He seems to be presently against us. Who’s side, he is on in the Future, seems to be anybody's guess. His Loyalty Zig Zags all over the place.

That, is too bad, for he does appear, to have some intelligence. I have been reading up on him at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamid_Karzai.

I will say this, in his defense, he ain't afraid of no one. He just keeps on trucking along, even after repeated attempts on his life. Yiyaa, for him on that.

To quote Assassination Attempts of Hamid Karzai:

    * 5 September 2002: An assassination attempt was made on Hamid Karzai in Kandahar City. A gunman wearing the uniform of the new Afghan National Army opened fire, wounding Gul Agha Sherzai (former governor of Kandahar) and an American Special Operations officer. The gunman, one of the President's bodyguards, and a bystander who knocked down the gunman were killed when Hamid Karzai's American bodyguards returned fire. Recently, some pictures of the US Navy's DEVGRU responding to the attempt have surfaced. Allegedly one of their members was wounded.[citation needed]

    * 16 September 2004: An attempted assassination on Hamid Karzai took place when a rocket missed the helicopter he was flying in while en route to Gardez.

    * 10 June 2007: The Taliban attempted to assassinate Hamid Karzai in Ghazni where Hamid Karzai was giving a speech to elders. The Taliban fired approximately 12 rockets, some of which landed 220 yards (200 m) away from the crowd. Hamid Karzai was not hurt in the incident and was transported away from the location after finishing his speech.

Wikinews has related news: President of Afghanistan uninjured after assassination attempt

    * 27 April 2008: Insurgents, reportedly from the Haqqani network, used automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades to attack a military parade that Hamid Karzai was attending in Kabul. Hamid Karzai was safe, but at least three people were killed, including a parliamentarian, a ten-year-old girl and a minority leader, and ten injured. Others attending the event included government ministers, former warlords, diplomats and the military top brass, all of whom had gathered to mark the 16th anniversary of the fall of the Afghan communist government to the mujahideen. Responding to the attack during the ceremony, the United Nations said the attackers "have shown their utter disrespect for the history and people of Afghanistan." Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack, stating, "We fired rockets at the scene of the celebration." He went on to say there were 6 Taliban at the scene and that 3 were killed. "Our aim was not to directly hit someone," Mujahed said when asked if the intention was to kill Hamid Karzai. "We just wanted to show to the world that we can attack anywhere we want to". The ability of the attackers to get so close to Hamid Karzai suggested they had inside help. Defense minister Wardak confirmed that a police captain was connected with the group behind the assassination attempt and that an army officer supplied the weapons and ammunition used in the attack.
    * This kind of news makes you root for the underdog, don't it?
    *  Makes one wonder, if he ain't got an
    * Angel, watching over him.
    * Most people don't live through one attempt. Yiyaa again

But we, need to be careful how we treat Hamid Karzai, none the less. Why should he get the perks of America, if he is going to go behind our backs, or in front of us, and complain about what we are doing, in trying to oversee, his democratic, voting system. He needs a taste of Loyalty.


He has a ‘win at all cost attitude,’ when it comes to his, being voted in as president of his Country, even though, it was a fraud ridden contest, and even he knows, it wasn’t ‘fair and square,’ or there would be no doubts permeating the airways. To quote Wikipedia, "In this second presidential election, Hamid Karzai was announced to have received over 50% of the votes. The election was tainted by lack of security, low voter turnout and widespread ballot stuffing, intimidation, and other electoral fraud.

Two months later Hamid Karzai accepted calls for a second round run-off vote, which was scheduled for 7 November 2009. On 2 November 2009, Hamid Karzai's run-off opponent, Abdullah Abdullah, withdrew from the race and election officials announced the cancellation of the run-off race. Hamid Karzai, the only remaining contender, was declared the winner a short time later."


He, from all appearances, has done his Country, some good, and most of all, he needs to continue, to do his Country good. But not, if he, is not truly representative of the people, who wanted him there, or did not want him there. Either way! He won! E’en, if it be, through a, Quasi-Afghanistanian-Tainted-Democracy. I truly believe he does want to benefit his Country. He would be a ridiculous Leader if he did not. But, he needs to be working with, our Military not against it(with his Taliban Tendencies.) One cannot go back to the old days(the way it used to be), it does not work. He needs to move on.

To quote Wikipedia, "Hamid Karzai was officially sworn in as President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan on 7 December 2004, at a formal ceremony in Kabul. Many interpreted the ceremony as a symbolically important "new start" for the war-torn nation. Notable guests at the inauguration included the country's former King, Zahir Shah, three former US presidents, and US Vice President Dick Cheney. But one wonders at what cost?"

Oh, well, it is an unfolding story, that will play out on the World stage, with our Military Presence overseeing it. For good or bad, this is the scene. Who are we helping? I for the life of me, do not know the answer to that. Those people are tough. Strikes me, they may not even want our help, but now that they have it, at least, their President, should not be acting like, we are not helping them, for we are doing what we think feasible, for Afghanistan and it’s people. What is Hamid Karzai doing, but sowing discord, to his neighbors, by allowing them a soapbox, un-censored and un-fettered, concerning us. Makes one wonder, what he tells his people! Makes one wonder, what he tells our Leaders?

Quotes from Wikipedia, "Starting in 2009, the US and a number of western nations attempted to distance themselves from Karzai. International criticism has centered around the government of Hamid Karzai for failing to secure the country from Taliban attacks, systemic governmental corruption, and most recently, widespread claims of electoral fraud in the 2009 Afghan presidential election. Hamid Karzai staunchly defended the election balloting, stating that some statements criticizing the balloting and vote count were "totally fabricated." He told the media that, "There were instances of fraud, no doubt... There were irregularities... But the election as a whole was good and free and democratic." He further went on to say that, "Afghanistan has its separate problems and we have to handle them as Afghanistan finds it feasible... This country was completely destroyed... Today, we are talking about fighting corruption in Afghanistan, improved legal standards... You see the glass half empty or half full. I see it as half full. Others see it as half empty."

Another quote from Wikipedia, "In a 2008 interview, Hamid Karzai expressed his feelings towards the United States by stating: "If I am called a puppet because we are grateful to America, then let that be my nickname." Although many in United States charge that Iran is meddling in Afghanistan's affairs, Hamid Karzai believes that Iran is only a friend of Afghanistan, despite Iranian-made arms being found in his country. In 2007, Hamid Karzai contradicted US assessments on Iran's role in Afghanistan by saying that Iran, so far, has been a helper in the reconstruction process.

On 5 August 2007, Hamid Karzai was invited to Camp David in Maryland, USA, for a special meeting with U.S. President George W. Bush. In October 2007, Hamid Karzai again rejected Western accusations against Iran, stating, "We have resisted the negative propaganda launched by foreign states against the Islamic Republic, and we stress that aliens' propaganda should not leave a negative impact on the consolidated ties between the two great nations of Iran and Afghanistan."

Hamid Karzai added, "The two Iranian and Afghan nations are close to each other due to their bonds and commonalities, they belong to the same house, and they will live alongside each other for good." However, just a year prior Hamid Karzai warned that, "Iran, Pakistan, and others are not fooling anyone."

    "If they don’t stop, the consequences will be ... that the region will suffer with us equally. In the past we have suffered alone; this time everybody will suffer with us.... Any effort to divide Afghanistan ethnically or weaken it will create the same thing in the neighboring countries. All the countries in the neighborhood have the same ethnic groups that we have, so they should know that it is a different ball game this time."

    —Hamid Karzai, 17 February 2006

Afghanistan has bred, some truly despotic and despicable people, who have Terrorist inclinations, for they always seem to be training, in that Country, for Individual Warfare with Suicidal Tendencies.

But, true to form, they are deemed, to have trained, the best! This shows, one has to be careful, how one deals with these type of people. They do not seem to have any loyalties, whatsoever, except to violence, for it is just, whoever feeds them that day, or who ever can benefit them the Greatest. But at the very least, we do understand, the kinds of people we are dealing with, AND IT’S LEADER. Switcheroo’s, which is good.

                For who knows, maybe they will
