In remarks with Afghan president Hamid Karzai at the White House this afternoon, President Barack Obama said the U.S. has fallen “short of the ideal” in Afghanistan
From the article in The Weekly Standard:
“So, you know, I think that, have we achieved everything that some might have imagined us achieving in the best of scenarios? Probably not. You know, there’s a human enterprise, and you know, you fall short of the ideal,” said Obama.
The president went on to say that America has achieved some measure of success in Afghanistan, however. “Did we achieve our central goal? And have we been able, I think, to shape a strong relationship with a responsible Afghan government that is willing to cooperate with us to make sure that it is not a launching pad for future attacks against the United States? We have achieved that goal. We are in the process of achieving that goal. And for that, I think we have to thank our extraordinary military, intelligence and diplomatic teams, as well as the cooperation of the Afghan government and the Afghan people.”
You got nothing there slick. What you got is a 7th Century pest hole of a country where people don’t even use a toilet or a cat hole to defecate in. Afghan soldiers will defecate in a building and wipe themselves on the wall. What a country huh?
Afghanistan is a country where everyone is a Talib and your stupid ROE’s get people killed on a regular basis. The Afghan people are not on our side. Neither is Karzai. He’s a corruptocrat who is biding his time until we leave. Then the Taliban bloodbath will begin, supported by our other lying “allies” the Pakis.
Yeah you fell short all right. Just like you do with everything else.
What level of success have you achieved there Carnac? The 7th Century death cult is still in charge. Grown men are still marrying, molesting, beating and killing little girls.
Johnny Taliban still can’t read or write; while his women sit at home in abject poverty and abuse.
What have you accomplished dear leader? I mean other than doubling our KIA’s since you took office?
How about nothing.
