A BBC poll says the Afghans are fairly happy with their president and with the Americans helping them.
Afghans are much more likely than Americans to think their country is on the right track (70%, up from 40% last year). Afghans think much more highly of their President Karzai than Americans do of President Obama (72% approval). A whopping 90% prefer their current government over the Taliban, and 68% say they support the presence of American troops.Excuse to surrender. I’m always wary of wartime reports that the elected government we’re allied with is “corrupt” or guilty of “tainted elections.” The corruption charge usually is not based on anything but a desire that the U.S. abandon a difficult fight for freedom.
Like Communist tyrants, the Taliban and al-Qaida are 100 percent corrupt, having never gained the consent of the people they seek to rule. You can’t point to a flaw in their elections because they don’t bother to hold elections.
