Karzai Says Afghan Army Will Need Help Until 2024 - NYTimes.com: "KABUL, Afghanistan — In the latest sign of the enduring financial costs of the Afghan war for the United States and other NATO countries, President Hamid Karzai said Tuesday that Afghanistan would not be able to pay for its own security until at least 2024.

Mr. Karzai’s comments underscored his government’s long-term dependence on American and NATO financing just hours after as many as a dozen people were killed during an American raid in Laghman Province east of Kabul, Afghan officials said, prompting hundreds of villagers to march in protest.

The early morning operation outside the provincial capital of Mehtar Lam happened “without any coordination with the Afghan forces or Afghan officials,” said Sayed Ahmed Safi, a spokesman for the governor of Laghman.

He said one woman was among the dead, which included civilians as well as insurgents, all killed by small-arms fire. He said the troops also detained four other men."

will lie, cheat, and steal to continue their
dysfunctional and deadly relationship with the
KSA — a relationship that is rotting this nation
and its leaders from the inside out.
