Tis time to part.
According to the Jerusalem Post, Afghan leader (and I use that term loosely) Hamid Karzai called American soldiers "demons." He accused them of at least 500 atrocities.
Obama says nothing in defense of the men and women that he leads as commander-in-chief.
Those uniforms keep Karzai in his elegant home and funny hats. Does he seriously think that Afghan military forces can be trusted?
Many of us have relatives who are in Afghanistan, who have been there, or who will be going. We are not amused at all by this characterization.
Perhaps this is public posturing to appease the Afghan crazies. Even so, it is unacceptable.
Obama needs to act in the same manner as President Eisenhower. When our closest allies enraged him during the Suez Canal Crisis, he threatened to withdraw all support. If Karzai cannot remember which side his bread is buttered on, then the United States must remind him that he needs us far more than we need him.
Karzai insults our troops by calling them demons. But they are all that keep him from having to see the Devil face to face.
