On BHO's AfPak Speech
"The days of providing a blank check (to Karzai) are over..."
"We will support Afghan Ministries, Governors, & local leaders that combat corruption & deliver for the people."
"...our troop commitment in Afghanistan cannot be open-ended, because the nation that I am most interested in building is our own."
So he intends to stabilize the country by cutting out the government and dealing directly with local agents. That sounds like a recipe for disaster. What will stop Karzai from turning on us?
His eagerness to "build" America is arrogant and threatening. If he just left us alone the US could build itself.
