Karzai on the Karpet?


The media is all a buzz with Afghan President Hamid Karzai getting "tough" with the U.S. demanding this and that. He was at Boston University today getting an honorary degree along with John F'ing Kerry.

He meets Monday with President Bush - wanna bet that the meeting isn't going to be as one-sided as the media is playing it up to be. Make no mistake, Karzai is going to get reminded "we brought you into the world stage - we can take you out!"

First, Mr. Karzai get your act together on the Opium problem, second - keep your trap shut about what we are doing (or rather not doing) in 'your country'.

He may come in like a lion, but will leave like a lamb with his tail between his legs, although I don't see the media portraying it that way. Make no mistake, Bush will make it very clear that the U.S. is still in charge.
