It looks like what happened in Iraq is starting to spread:
Afghanistan’s president has sent a list of demands to the United States government about troop conduct ahead of the arrival of more U.S. forces next year.
President Hamid Karzai said in a speech in the capital Thursday that he sent the missive last month calling for all U.S. operations to occur in cooperation with the Afghan government and security forces.
“Part of that list was that they shouldn’t, on their own, enter the houses of our people and bombard our villages and detain our people,” Karzai said.
The Middle East is tired of the cowboy military style we had from George Bush, and they also want change. Luckily they should see it with our new President. If not, then we can call the entire Afghanistan war a failure. We need the support of these leaders to be successful, and winning that support includes honoring their wishes.
