SAY NO to Surge: Why Die for Karzai? By Tom Hayden - ACTIONS

Before the following, I want to add a note: While I follow and admire Hayden, the title is offensive to me and I hope to follow-up why in more detail in a post or two to come soon - "Why Kill for Karzai?" is probably a better question. Credit for this rephrase goes to Adaner Usmani who wrote a critique addressing Hayden's sort of argument here:

re: Iraq -- here


"This is the choice facing Obama: Whether to send more Americans to their graves in support of Hamid Karzai while at the same time blocking the emergent quest for peace negotiations in Afghanistan."
