Afghan President Blasts US Over Shootings Probe

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has lashed out at the United States, saying he is at the "the end of the rope" because of the lack of U.S. cooperation into a probe of an American soldier's alleged killing spree.

Karzai said on Friday that the delegation he sent to investigate the deadly shootings of 16 Afghan civilians did not receive the cooperation the Afghans expected from American officials.

He says he wants a good relationship with the U.S. but that it is becoming increasingly difficult. He insists the U.S. needs to respect Afghan culture and laws.

    Hey Mr. K do you mean that the US government keeps secrets and can't be trusted to do the right thing? You need to start drinking more American Koolaid and just accept what whey want you to know.

    If this sorry president, senate and congress had any common sense they would pull our troops out and bring them home. The idiots in Afghan need to be left to their own destruction. If they all die or become slaves to the Taliban then so be it.

    Here's an idea: Let's pull our troops immediately out of this hellhole of a country and let Karzai fend for himself. If he and his country want to live in the 7th century, let them. Don't let our troops suffer any more at the hands of this barbaric people and horrid backwards culture.

    Hey...let's take all of our troops and all of our money and leave the middle east period! Never to return and never to spend a dime on them for any reason. all bleeding hearts can fly over on their own time and money and write personal checks if they think this is too harsh.

    Fidel Castro & Saddam Hussein are/were pure evil. America is a wonderful place to live. How could you confuse them with the USA? You must be very stupid.
