Choosing Not To Fight
Afghanistan Prez Hamid Karzai said this at a DC press conference yesterday:
[T]errorism was hurting us way before Iraq, or September 11th. The President mentioned some examples of it. These extremist forces were killing people in Afghanistan and around for years, closing schools, burning mosques, killing children, uprooting vineyards with vine trees, grapes hanging on them, forcing populations to poverty and misery. They came to America on September 11th, but they were attacking you before September 11th in other parts of the world. We are a witness in Afghanistan as to what they are and how they can hurt. You are a witness in New York. Do you forget people jumping off the 80th floor, or 70th floor when the planes hit them? Can you imagine what it would be for a man or a woman to jump off that high? Who did that? And where are they now? And how do we fight them? How do we get rid of them, other than going after them? Should we wait for them to come and kill us again? That's why we need more action around the world, in Afghanistan and elsewhere, to get them defeated, extremism, their allies, terrorists, and the like, of them.
Is he a Republican lackey or does just get it?
160 Democrats just voted against H.R. 6166. Do they get it?
