Well, dear readers, the secret is out! Hamid Karzai, allegedly our ally in Afghanistan, now charges that we are attacking his side, not the supposed bad guys. I mean it. I’m not joking. It was a lead story in the Washington Post this week.
Seem loopy? Sure, but a world class nutter like Karzai can believe dippier stuff than that without straining. Our task is simple: we acknowledge his brilliant insight as quickly as possible and say we'll quit attacking him and just get out--by Friday if we can.
And as a parting gesture we could give the bad guys wharever spare bombs, tanks, etc. we have lying around. Probably less waste than on Karzai's side.
And when we got everybody home, we could enjoy peace. Anybody remember it? I bet we'd like it.
