If Obama Can Denounce the Corruption in Afghanistan, Why Can't Harper?

U.S. President Barack Obama made a surprise
visit to Afghanistan recently, and is committed to cleaning up the corrupt Karzai government.

We have been receiving reports of this for the past few years, and yet where's the debate over the issue?

Of course, we can't ask Harper himself because he doesn't take questions, and if anyone brought it up the House, they would be shouted down as a "Taliban dupe."

Isn't living in a fascist country grand?

PRESIDENT BARACK Obama yesterday arrived in Afghanistan on a surprise trip intended to push the government of Hamid Karzai to crack down on corruption and drug trafficking.

From Kansas City:
But, the American President added, Karzai could do a bit more about corruption, and the rampant drug problems in Afghanistan. Corruptions after all helps build Taliban support. Afghans figure that if the legitimate government is cheating them, why not back the illegitimate one. And, of course, drugs, poppy crops and opiate production, directly funds the Taliban, and al Qaida.

Apparently most of the drug trade is being run by Karzai's own family, and yet according to the Harperites, he's the best thing that ever happened to the country.

We need to get out of there now. Too many lives lost for nothing.
