#2 Pull everybody back down to Kandahar and start flying them home NOW!

#3 Might as well pull everyone out. Our political leaders lost the fight years ago.

#4 One of the positives of an early withdrawal is that it advances the day we see Karzai upside down on a Kabul lamp post

#5 My guess is that Karzai will step down and be living in Gay Paree before the Talibs retake the govt. It'll be his successor hanging from the lamp post.

And doesn't Karzi know it, so expect him to do a runner out of Afghanistan before the 20014 elections when everything will go tits-up.

#7 for all the US service people and civilians killed due to Caped President Feckless, we should make sure he doesn't leave Kabul alive. Let him know it

#8 Come to think of it, Karzai DOES look a lot like Charles Middleton!!

#9 One of the things I despised about GWB was his foreign policy implementation of "compassionate conservatism".

He seems to believe in cultural & moral relativism in that everyone is like a Euro Social Democrat if just given a chance.

#10 He won a second, even more dubious, five-year-term after the 2009 presidential election. When the count was in, he won(?) by something like 54%. However, the fix was in and the ballot boxes were stuffed. Chicago would be proud of Karzai.

#11 ...see, he learned. However, his departure should also be a lesson to our own governing class, that stuffed ballot boxes aren't willing to give that 'last full measure of devotion' to keep you in power.

#12 Somewhere there is a small village in France or Italy looking for someone to open a kebab place.

#14 The last official act of his security detail should be to throw him out the door of the last chopper out.

#16 Karzai's US security detail should be the first element pulled out.

#17 Heh, pull our guys out and watch the disappearances and torture increase.
