Hamid Karzai Sworn in As Afghan President
By STEPHEN GRAHAM, Associated Press Writer
KABUL, Afghanistan - President Hamid Karzai took the helm Tuesday of a country whose revival is threatened by a surging opium trade and a persistent Taliban insurgency, pledging to bring stability and prosperity to Afghanistan (news - web sites) even as rebels staged attacks near the Pakistani border.
The strange thing about this merry making in Kabul is that Karzai cannot leave his palace without taking most of his army with him. He really is the major of a small part of Kabul, the rest of the country is under warlords who sell the poppy and do not care who is in the Presidential chair.
Our coward President was at a marine base yesterday thanking them for making all the sacrifices he just said no to in the 60's when he was call to duty. He had some kind of jacket on that made him look like a valet parking guy.
Our insane Sec. Of Def telling troops how wonderful they are and how proud he is of them was blasted by a few courageous soldiers who asked him among other things why they still did not have armor for their jeeps, and why they had to go to the scrap yards to salvage parts. Rummy asked them to repeat their questions and than told them that they have the best equiptment in the world and armor for himvees sometime is bad. What a fucking idiot we have as SOD.
The rest of the war criminals are packing their bags and getting out of Dodge, hoping they are not involved when the war tribunals start calling witnesses someday.
P.S. Bush, the coward, says democracy has now arrived in Afghanistan. I have this bridge back in Brooklyn, I'll make you a good deal------
