OK, U.S. Officials...don't bluff. Pull the aid. We've spent enough over there anyway.

In other words, be more discreet. Our politicians will teach them how, corruption is an art, not a science and as our politicians already know.

Corrupt? That's the pot calling the kettle black. This obama administration is the most corrupt govt. America has ever put in power. They are the most non-transparent group of criminals set on destroying America.

Foreign aid is more often used as either a national bribery mechanism or a weapon of blackmail, rarely ever as foreign aid, then once the other nation gets hooked on the money their national government becomes sovereign in name only and they realize that they are no longer in control of their own agendas and policy making as a nation then if they try to get off of the foreign aid it only means that their nation hopelessly crumbles to pieces.

The same thing occurs with federal money going to the states and in the end there will be no more states.

Since the Jihadist Muslim regimes supporter Barack Hussein Obama is paying hundreds of millions of American taxpayers dollars as bribe to the Taliban Islamic terrorists as 'protection fees' through Afghanistan tribal landlords it is no clear what is the definition of corrupt politician in the White House or in the Jihadist Muslim world.
Evidently, with the Iranian regime of Ahmadinajad with its IED roadside bombs and missiles is becoming partner within Afghanistan of the Taliban terrorists in fighting our US troops with the agreement of ‘corrupt’ Karzai and with no objection from Imam Obama.
Clearly, Imam Obama has his own International one world socialistic-Jihadist agenda for the future of Afghanistan provinces divided under Jihadist Shariya laws rule between radical Islamic Pakistan and Iran and their Islamic terrorist organizations when US troops will be gone out soon as losers. So...who is the truly corrupt Muslim politician?

Let me connect the dots. We black flag 9/11. Blame osama. Claim osama's in Afghanistan. We don't even try to extradite. We invade and kill. Then we point a finger calling him 'corrupt?'

Dang, that's rich.

Jonesy, Why do you continue to post, ANYWHERE. Your posts appear to be straight out of the bumhole of FOXCRAP. Perhaps O'Rielly can find you a job. If he can't try slack Alice Palin and have a cup of tea! US Troops are already loosers. They are pawns of the Industrial/Military complex, who LOVE WAR.

What do you expect? Afghanistan-just like Iraq-just like North and South Korea know 'Mom & Dad' are going away for the weekend.

For the people who truly believe we (The United States) should be everybodies police force, food basket, health care provider, and advocate...be careful what you wish for.

We once were a Great Nation-now we are blending into another 3rd World Nation. Gee, we just have too-to let the others catch up.

In 5 yrs. China will own the world.

Karzai may be a prick sometimes, but I can understand why he does not like the US telling him how to run his own government. He looks at the corruption in Washington and the failed leadership and incompetant management in the Obama administration, and wonders why should he listen to the US being critical of corruption in his government. The US wants more cooperation in protecting the Afghan border, but the US does a piss poor job in protecting its own borders. Obama does not know what he is doing most of the time and he flaunts his extravagant living style and authority every day on national television, and at the moment he is on another vacation in Hawaii and cares less what the American people are putting up with. The US Congress passes foolish spending bills one after another in the face of opposition by the majority of the American people. It is not so difficult to understand why any foreign leader having problems wants advice on what to do from the Obama administration.
