Karzai and Zardari: Two Reasons to be Very Afraid

Every Sunday I take in my weekly dose of political talk shows. This past Sunday was no exception and “Meet the Press” really got my blood boiling. David Gregory interviewed the President of Pakistan, Asif Zardari and then followed that up with an interview of Afghanistan President, Hamid Karzai.

Let’s start with Zardari:

In answer to Osama Bin Laden’s whereabouts, the smug, arrogant Pakistani President replies, “You lost him, I didn’t”. What? Listen, I’ve been as critical of the Bush administration as anyone in the blogosphere and I’ve readily admitted that our problems with Al Quada pre-date Bush. I draw the line at this man who cannot govern his own country pulling up history and throwing it in our faces to obscure the fact that he is unable to stem the tide of dangerous terrorist advances within Pakistan. I understand his grief at the loss of his wife Benazir Bhutto but this does not give him license to play sophomoric games with us about who did what when. This is why the man can’t make peace with India. These countries are so buried in stupid petty historical events that no progress can be made.

Just as I’m about to simmer down, Gregory brings on Karzai:

We need a higher moral ground? Excuse me? This is a man in charge of a country that is wrestling with a law that allows men to rape their wives. When Gregory confronted Karzai with this, he hemmed and hawed and claimed the law would be repealed. In what kind of savage country is this law on the books in the first place? This man has the gall to lecture us about morality? As for civilian casualties, Karzai wouldn’t be dealing with civilian casualties if he had control of his country and put a stop to the terrorists.

Sarah Palin’s joke of an interview with Charlie Gibson last year pointed out that the Bush Doctrine had a couple of different interpretations (none of which Sarah could recite). The part of the Bush Doctrine that I sign up for whole-heartedly is that any country that knowingly harbors terrorists, i.e. gives them a safe haven, is subject to military action by our country. If these terrorists were not a threat to our country, I’d advocate pulling all our men and women out of Afghanistan and let the harboring country rot. The fact is we are in Afghanistan because Karzai is incapable of policing his own country. We’re scared as hell of Pakistan for the same reason.

When Timothy McVeigh bombed the Murrah building in Oklahoma City, we didn’t need the British or anyone else to come here and take care of things. McVeigh fried and his co-conspirator went to prison. Was there a rash of terrorism afterwards? No. We took care of it. Case closed. The reason we are so at risk right now is that these incompetent leaders cannot clean up their own mess.

What is scarier, is in their arrogance and denial and twisted moral sense, I’m not sure these “allies” of ours even want to.

Rutherford

  1. When I worked in juvenile prisons, I quickly realized when someone was posturing because they had to and when they were being real. These ass clowns need to show a little rebellion the same way a 14 year old does with his parents.

    I agree it’s very annoying.

    Bush dropped the ball at Tora Bora. (spelled wrong?). We should have encircled the whole area with U.S. infantry while utterly flattening those mountains. So, our Pakistani friend is correct, in that regard.

    According to the/your “harboring terrorists theory” we need to start a massive bombing campaign in Northern Pakistan, Pakistani government be damned. Is that what I understand you are calling for?

    We contracted out the Pakistanis to create the Taliban. Now we are contracting them out to destroy them. Luckily, I think they realize they had no choice both times.

    The Big Question: Does Pakistan have too many Taliban stink beard sympathizers in its intelligence, military high command and general populace?

  2. Of course, we shouldn’t forget that the reason we didn’t encircle the whole area and flatten the mountains is that we were chasing imaginary enemies in Iraq. I can’t remember where I saw, heard or read the account, but I know I heard some story that our boys were ready to go get Bin Laden on very good intelligence and were called off by Washington. It is of course the crowning failure of the Bush Presidency.

    Bottom line, I can say it. Zardari should keep his mouth shut and be happy we’re willing to risk life and limb to do what he should be doing.

    Is the Pakistani government compromised by Taliban insiders? Who knows …. THEY don’t know. That is what is so troubling. And it seems typical of countries in the region. Everyone gets their panties in a knot when Ahmadinejad makes some nut case comment when he is really not calling the shots. From what I understand the ayatollahs call the shots. So the whole idea of government in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan is a total farce.

  3. “So the whole idea of government in Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan is a total farce.”

    It’s not the region doesn’t have government, it’s that religion and government are so interwoven. Progressive governments may spring up, but there will still be religious elements. It has been that way for many centuries, and is not likely to change dramatically in the near future. The people there want religion in their government. They just all don’t want it to be oppressive. Unfortunately, some do and are.

    There have been a few times throughout history where the central governments of the region were either weak or non-existent. During these periods it was often the religious community that made any attempts at bringing some sort of order, social services, and guidance. The same thing happened in Europe for centuries, until the rise of nations and nationalism. The Middle East just never lost that. Which isn’t to say they are primative. They just took a different path.

    The best we are goiong to hope for is that the religious influences in these governments recognize diversity, education, and tolerance. Things that religious and secular factions in our own country often struggle with, as well.

    But none of that means I think much of either of these 2 guys.

  4. Of course, we shouldn’t forget that the reason we didn’t encircle the whole area and flatten the mountains is that we were chasing imaginary enemies in Iraq.

    As usual, your history is fuzzy as you bash Bush. Another lie told by another lib. What’s new? Tora Bora was a full 15 months before the ultimatum was given to Iraq. We weren’t chasing anybody but Afghanistan.

    You are now getting a taste of what the right has put up with from the thankless, spoiled, despicable brats from the left for seven years – spitting in the face of those who fight to protect them, many who have died for that cause. I know for a fact many in the military hate Obama, don’t trust Obama, and are making the attempt to get out because they ain’t putting on the line for the flimflam CiC. Two of them are my friends and I have been encouraging them to get out while they are still healthy and capable because the left of this country isn’t worth defending.

    Though I agree with most of the content of the article and did find both men pompous, thankless and arrogant, I have no sympathy for you “R”, or your man Obama. Your comments from above only reinforce that you will never admit your bad behavior and you too are not to be trusted.

    You’re getting a taste of your own spiteful medicine and now are getting a lesson in what it feels like to have to care for infidels while being betrayed. In fact, I will laugh out loud if this blows up in Obama’s face. He’s the magic man – let’s see him perform. That’s what you promised us – magic. 😉

  5. Tex, bottom line, was the job in Afghanistan done after those 15 months? And if not, then why did we launch an offensive against Iraq which totally drained our military might? Even you have to admit that any satisfaction at seeing Hussein brought down paled in comparison to how we would have felt if we had captured or killed Bin Laden. Why are you still arguing for this obvious military misstep?

    You say I am not to be trusted. Well, trust is indeed what this article is about. We cannot trust Karzai and Zardari to get their act together. It’s scary as hell. All the Obama bashing in the world isn’t going to change that. He’s the only commander-in-chief you’ve got so you might as well get on board. The Rush Limbaugh “hope he fails” strategy will get you no where.

  6. “R”,

    What are you going to do if Bin Laden is dead and has been for a number of years? Are you going to apologize for your demagoguery? You call Iraq a misstep, but you have no idea as history is yet to be written. You’re just parroting the leftist mantra of Rachel Madcow and Keith Overbite (whose ratings have now tanked almost 50% since November). You won’t be able to honestly say that for another 20 years – not to mention our troops won the “unwinnable” war, for which the left has never admitted they were wrong.

    I’m as much on board as you were during the last six years – this is The Prophet Obama’s fight. If Abdul comes shrieking ‘Allahu Akbar’ down the street wearing the suicide vest, you’ll need to find help elsewhere as I’m sitting this one out. I’ve become a critic as were my predecessors from the left. You ought to know! 😉

  7. “When Gregory confronted Karzai with this, he hemmed and hawed and claimed the law would be repealed. In what kind of savage country is this law on the books in the first place?”

    You really want to get into that? 🙂

    “The reason we are so at risk right now is that these incompetent leaders cannot clean up their own mess.”

    Well with Crapistan, the army is reluctant to fight fellow muslims. Hence the majority are at the border with India because they are a country of pagans.

  8. You’re just parroting the leftist mantra of Rachel Madcow and Keith Overbite (whose ratings have now tanked almost 50% since November).

    Seems Tex is a Marc Levin fan. Thats a good thing 🙂

  9. Damn, I wanted to be the one who pointed out the enormous lack of historical perspective. Tora Bora had nothing to do with Iraq. It was a tactical mistake.

    This is why its hard to take Rutherford. He spews such nonsense about Tora Bora, showing himself to be a sort of parrot regurgitating poop he thinks he’s heard from the left, gets called on it, and pretends his massive omission doesn’t matter.

    Dude. Get a fricking clue.

    Tex, the war in Afghanistan is a righteous one, no matter what clown is steering the ship. For you not to support the cause is terrible.

    I know in some way your just trying to give the left a spoonful of their own terrible tasting medicine with the hope that maybe they will see how bad they have been to this country.

    Right now guys are on patrol risking their lives who can’t stand the direction this country is going. Yet, they soldier on.

    Don’t go down the same road of those treasonous twits.

  10. So let me get this straight. Pelosi has changed her story a 5th time? And Obama has flip flopped AGAIN??????

    Obama says he’s changed his mind about releasing photos? Or is he distancing himself from their inevitable release because…uh….they never showed up in court to stop them from being released?

    Funny how he changed his mind when his trip to Egypt is coming up. .

    It’s one thing for some Copenhagen dipping hick from Akron, Ohio to deal with enraged jihadists whipped up into a fervor, quite another the Executive Branch.

    And Pelosi? Outright calling the CIA out? After 5 different stories, who in their right mind even listens to this woman any more?

    In fact, with this crew of indecisive rookie weirdos, who the the hell would want to be in the CIA right now?

    Obama. Keep your eye on the ball. It’s not Bush anymore. It’s insane Islamic mass murderers.

    Meanwhile the sound of the Gitmo mass murders reciting suras in Cuba must be driving Obama insane. Where they going Obama??? LOL

  11. Tex, the war in Afghanistan is a righteous one, no matter what clown is steering the ship. For you not to support the cause is terrible…Don’t go down the same road of those treasonous twits.

    I would never betray our military. However, there is nothing righteous about Obama or his lackeys. I’ve switched tactics Rabbit and taken a cue from the left. I want all the soldiers out of Afghanistan for their own sake with the incompetent and corrupt CiC at the helm.

    Let the American hating leftists feel the rusty blade at their throat and Abdul living in their backyard, strapped with bombs. Let these cowards beg for mercy so that they don’t forget their egregious and sinful actions of the past six years.

    We’ll fight the good fight when the time comes. 😉

  12. I used to think Nanzi Pelosi was the proverbial ugly Dim shrew. The last few weeks has shown me I was wrong.

    She’s not a shrew, but a screw spinning so fast her head gasket is about to blow. 😆

  13. The last few weeks have…

    Can you tell I was in a big hurry to leave that last comment before being called to the door?

  14. With my luck Tex will convince America to give up on the war in Afghanistan and I will end up on the business end of some jihadist nail bomb while I’m sitting in an outside cafe power eating a falafel in Dearborn.

  15. With my luck Tex will convince America to give up on the war in Afghanistan and I will end up on the business end of some jihadist nail bomb while I’m sitting in an outside cafe power eating a falafel in Dearborn.

    😆 😆 😆

    I’m going to get you, the pretty wife, and Jr. down here with the good souls who are more than happy to give Abdul the butchered cow treatment if he comes looking for trouble.

    We’ll let Rutherford, Keith Overbite, Rachel Madcow talk their way out of it. It actually gives me a tingle running down my leg when I think about Abdul meeting up with Rachel Madcow…

  16. Let me take these on in order (I sometimes feel like my once active colleague ChenZhen, a Ninja master taking on four or five opponents at a time! 🙂 )

    1. Welcome to the blog Elric. You will indeed find like minds among the conservatives who hang out here. In fact, once my partner in blogging, The Rigorist, discovers you are here he will be overjoyed. I think he is the only one I know who fully matches your disdain for Islam.

    2. I’ll grant you that my timetable is off concerning Tora Bora (I researched it a bit more) but my concept still holds. In fact, you fellas have given me a gift because now I don’t need to consolidate Bush’s screw ups under one Iraq umbrella. I can now ding him for two separate screw ups. First letting Bin Laden escape into Pakistan and then diverting our much needed military presence in Afghanistan to a country which had no beef with us, Iraq.

    Please tell me, my expert military strategists, did we have infinite resources? Why can’t you admit we focused on the wrong front? Ask yourself this. Would we be better off today with Al Quada and Taliban crushed and Hussein still in power or the current state of things? Let’s see if you can give an honest answer to that. And Tex, Bin Laden may well be dead. So what? Al Quada isn’t dead.

    3. Never defended Nancy Pelosi, never will. She waffles all over the place and there’s no telling what she knew and when she knew it. As for Obama changing position …. damn, the man just cannot win with you guys. What purpose does showing more humiliating photos of detained Iraqis serve? None. That is as much your opinion as it is mine. But when Obama makes a sensible change of mind on the subject after consulting with his military advisers, you guys jump on the guy’s case for waffling. Gimme a break.

    4. Rabbit as for your falafel, I swear man you need to write a book. Sometimes you can turn a phrase in a truly inspired way. Lots of fun to read … honestly.

  17. Oh by the way, if you believe liberal accounts, and I do, the Bush administration was ready to go after Hussein on 9/12 but they just couldn’t make their case immediately. So while Tora Bora may have been 15 months prior to the Iraq invasion I can still propose that all of our actions in Afghanistan from 9/12 on were compromised by our blood-lust at Iraq. Put that in your hookah pipe and smoke it.

  18. Oh Tex, I forgot to compliment you on your new Obama avatar. It gets more offensive by the minute.Will he have a Hitler mustache on the next one? 👿

  19. Obama gets more offensive by the minute. But with Bush compared to Hitler for 8 years by the left, I think you can suck it up with an avatar.

  20. 1. Thanks Rutherford. Good to know that there other sane people that see islam for what it is besides myself.

    2. Osama is dead now anyway, has that changed things on the war on terror. Opps am I still allowed to say that? Ohh and as for Iraq. Just answer one question. When 2 enemies go to war and after the war their is a surrender agreement and the loser breaks that agreement, what happens next?

    3. Obama loves to take both sides of every issue. Now tell me. Why would a guy “as smart” as Obama need to consult with military brass to determine that the release of the photos is a bad idea after being so arrogant that he said he would release them before getting advise?

  21. Elric:
    1. Glad you’re finding compadres here. I always find it amusing that I am the liberal host of a shindig for conservatives. Most “libs” who come here, read in silence and leave me to defend the cause on my own. Kinda sad if you think about it.

    2. Not entirely sure what you’re getting at here but I would think that anyone who breaks a surrender agreement is subject to sanctions of some kind.

    3. Obama is wrestling with competing forces inside his own head. On the one hand he wants transparency. On the other hand (and this comes from MSNBC’s only conservative voice, Joe Scarborough), he is a foreign policy realist. I think throughout the Obama years you will see a struggle between idealism and realism played out in public. If Obama has one fault it is that he thinks aloud. If Bush had one fault it was that he did not think at all.

  22. “See that Tex … Elric is feeling at home already and coming to your defense. I can see that this is going to be fun.”

    I also see you failed to mention the left comparing Bush to Hitler for 8 years or Obama more offensive by the minute 🙂

  23. 1. Well you allow free discussion which is rare for liberals and even for RINO’s so I commend you for that.

    2. Well Iraq broke numerous surrender agreements after the 1st Iraq war. Normally if a party breaks a surrender agreement that reinstates the act of war.

    3. Obama doesnt want transparency. The guy nominates and supports tax cheats to head the IRS. The guy isnt a foreign policy realists, he is a globalists that wants the US just to be another 3rd world country. You think thats a bit strong? Read this

    http://spectator.org/archives/2009/05/15/obama-the-destroyer

    Oh and as for Bush not thinking at all? Well he thought hard enough to stick it out in Iraq as the the Dems wanted to abandon it to AQ and Iran. I am not the biggest Bush fan, I had issues with him. I wasnt enthralled with him like many are with Obama. But that will change as he ruins this country.

  24. “R”,

    You should take that as a compliment. I had to hunt long and far to find the most offensive, obscene Obammi pic I could find to decorate your board.

    I did that just for you! Seriously! 😉

  25. “R”,

    See, you and General Chen are a rare breed of lib with a thick skin. I all you a few names and you come back for more. For that, a tip of the cap.

    Looks like Elric66 is my kind of man. Elric, did you used to post at Darwin Johnson’s blog over at LGF?

  26. Yeah I did, til his minions got me booted. This was even before he had the purge. They did me a favor and even early on I could tell he wasnt all there.

  27. Just curious on the avatar. If you dont find it offensive that Obama bowed deeply to the depot Saudi king, why would you find the avatar offensive. Seriously.

  28. 1. Thanks.

    2. Mmmm, I haven’t consulted my “Rules of War” manual recently but I thought that non-violent sanctions were a perfectly reasonable answer to a non compliant “surrenderer”. Please cite me some sources to educate me otherwise.

    3. Your comment is a bit milder and a bit saner than the Spectator piece you cited. I’m not tickled with Geithner’s personal tax history. But it’s done. Move on and see how the guy performs. The fact is his favorability ratings have improved dramatically since his shaky start and the market has reflected this.

    I wouldn’t argue about Obama being a globalist and I’m not sure why that’s a dirty word. He wants the US to act like it is not above the law, and to not be so belligerent. Again, I see no problem there.

    As for the article you cite, I will admit that I was not particularly politically aware in the early days of Bush’s 8 years but for the life of me I don’t recall liberals speaking in such extremes about him as conservatives do about Obama. For all his flaws, in two years of a Democratically lead Congress, Bush was never in any danger of impeachment. Surely if liberals had been as ravenous as conservatives currently are, Bush would have gotten a ton more crap for his follies.

    The lone liberal who commented on the Spectator piece made a valid and largely ignored point. For some reason, Republicans can’t get over that they lost the election. To make matters worse there are those among them who are telling them to grow up and start contributing positively. Unfortunately, the party has been taken over by extremists.

    As I’ve said before on this blog, Elric, your party has no hope until it injects some sorely needed intellect into its platforms and some positive plans for change. The party of “no” will continue to hear “no” at the ballot box until it changes its tune.

  29. “Mmmm, I haven’t consulted my “Rules of War” manual recently but I thought that non-violent sanctions were a perfectly reasonable answer to a non compliant “surrenderer”. Please cite me some sources to educate me otherwise.”

    Might be an answer but when they dont work tougher actions are required. Though interesting that parties wanted the sanctions lifted all together even when Saddam was shooting at our aircraft trying to enforce the sanctions and the surrender agreement.

    “As for the article you cite, I will admit that I was not particularly politically aware in the early days of Bush’s 8 years but for the life of me I don’t recall liberals speaking in such extremes about him as conservatives do about.”

    You do have a poor memory. But then Bush didnt try to nationize the banks and car industry. He didnt quadruple the deficit, he didnt undermine the CIA or the military, he didnt bow to a Saudi king and pal around with communist thugs. He didnt come out and say he was going to REMAKE AMERICA. Shall I go on?

    “As I’ve said before on this blog, Elric, your party has no hope until it injects some sorely needed intellect into its platforms and some positive plans for change. The party of “no” will continue to hear “no” at the ballot box until it changes its tune.”

    Party of “No”? Yeah we are a party of no. No to a porous border, high taxes, weak defense, the global warming scam, nationalizing industries, spitting on the Constitution, selling out our sovereignty etc.

    “For some reason, Republicans can’t get over that they lost the election. To make matters worse there are those among them who are telling them to grow up and start contributing positively. Unfortunately, the party has been taken over by extremists.”

    “Extremists” Like who

    “I wouldn’t argue about Obama being a globalist and I’m not sure why that’s a dirty word. He wants the US to act like it is not above the law, and to not be so belligerent. Again, I see no problem there.”

    A globalist doesnt think the Constitution is the supreme law of our land, hence why they look at international law when viewing cases in our courts.

  30. “But then Bush didnt try to nationize the banks and car industry.”

    You’re the one with the poor memory.

    Bush signed the TARP bill, and began the bailout of Detroit.

  31. Bush started TARP and the bailoutsbut he wasnt trying to nationalize them. I didnt agree with TARP or the bailouts under Bush. The demomarxists did and actually wanted more. Well they got it with Obama. As far as I recall, Bush wasnt firing CEO’s and using his press corp to intimidate and threaten investors.

    Your memory seems to be the one that is poor.

  32. Nonetheless, it was the Bush Administration that began the process of nationalizing the banks and auto industry. You can sugar coat and qualify that all you want.

    The fact remains.

    The process began with Bush. You forgot that, made a generalizing statement, and was proven wrong.

    End of story.

  33. Process of giving them loans. Not controlling interest or favoring the UAW. Bailout isnt the same as nationalizing which I wasnt in favor for. I dont know why you want to pile all this on Bush. Demomarxists controlled congress, Obama didnt complain and quadrupled the deficit in 100 days.

    Bush is out of office, Chairman Obama is in control now.

  34. Party of “No”? Yeah we are a party of no. No to a porous border, high taxes, weak defense, the global warming scam, nationalizing industries, spitting on the Constitution, selling out our sovereignty etc.

    LOL with this statement you’ve proven my point. Solutions my man, solutions! Don’t see any. Just a lot of whining.

    A globalist doesnt think the Constitution is the supreme law of our land, hence why they look at international law when viewing cases in our courts.

    OK, now you’ve lost me. For what purely domestic legal issue is Obama looking to international law?

    As for international treaties to which we are a party, one would hope they are consistent with the values set forth in our constitution. Otherwise, we were fools to sign the treaties. So, following international law should never be in conflict with our constitutional imperatives. You’ve created a false conflict.

    Thanks to Red Pill, who is no fan of Obama, for tracing the roots of our bail-out frenzy to the man who started it all, Mr. Bush.

  35. “LOL with this statement you’ve proven my point. Solutions my man, solutions! Don’t see any. Just a lot of whining. ”

    Wall on the border, lower taxes, more into the military, government out of the sector, follow the Constitution. No whinning

    Global warming isnt real so no solution there.

    “OK, now you’ve lost me. For what purely domestic legal issue is Obama looking to international law?”

    Wait for his SC nominee.

    “Thanks to Red Pill, who is no fan of Obama, for tracing the roots of our bail-out frenzy to the man who started it all, Mr. Bush.”

    Did Obama oppose it? Did the Democrat Congress oppose it? Yes or no?

  36. “Did Obama oppose it? Did the Democrat Congress oppose it? Yes or no?”

    You’ll get no arguement from me on those things. Believe me, I have no love for the fiscally irresponsible Democrats or for Mr. Barack Obama.

    I’m actually a Bush supporter with no regrets. I only brought up that Bush started it because it sucks when Democrats in the arguement are the ones that bring it up. Like you, I disagreed with his actions then…and I find the actions of the current executive even more reprehensible.

  37. Well the dems have no argument with Bush since they pushed him into starting the massive spending. Its not like Obama opposed it or the Republicans controlled Congress.

  38. A fundamental part of the “Western” identity is the belief that democracy is a universal right. Westerners earnestly believe that all people should be “free” and have the right to self-determination. They automatically assume that people who live under dictatorships desperately want to choose their governments. But this is just not true. The vast majority of people really don’t care. I live in one of the most authoritarian countries in the world. And the truth of the matter is that as long as people have jobs, a little spending money and the shops have fresh fruit, people could care less what laws the government enacts.

    In fact, I would go so far as saying that in many countries, people are scared of democracy. The nice thing about dictatorships is that they provide consistency. By contrast, democracies necessitate change every 4 or 5 years. And in volatile parts of the world, change is seen as going hand in hand with violence. People look at countries like Algeria and Burma that have descended into chaos after elections and figure that it’s not worth the risk.

    The truth of the matter is that Pakistan and Afghanistan are not well suited to democracy. National identity is weak. People identify with their clans and their ethnic groups, not with parties and ideologies.

  39. Shocked, you make a very good point here. I may be stretching your point a bit far but I have heard some say that Iraq was much more stable under Saddam Hussein than it is now.

    At the risk of inviting another pile-on, could it be that some countries NEED a dictator?

  40. Absolutely. No two societies are identical. In fact, many societies have absolutely nothing in common with each other. The West promotes individualism, the East promotes collectivism and in the Near East, patronage is the name of the game. Democracy works in the West. But it’ll never work in the Middle East.

  41. Part of the problem is that many of the countries in the Middle East were formed by the British after the breakup of the Ottoman Empire after WWI. They have no national identity because they were never united in creating their state to begin with.

    I am not very familiar with the modern histories of Afghanistan or Pakistan, but that is certainly the case with Iraq. The borders of that country were drawn by other people. No concideration was given to the ethinic, cultural, sectarian, and/or tribal differences in the country that was literally created with the strokes of a pen on a map.

    Unfortunately, there are no easy solutions.
