Karzai threatens to join Taliban
Today's big news: Karzai threatens to join the Taliban. This comes right after he visited Kandahar and told people there that NATO's planned June offensive -- "the fulcrum of the entire war" according to the New York Times -- wasn't going to happen.
Earlier, I blogged about President Karzai's brother Wali, the strongman of Kandahar. A new article in the UK Independent details how the people despise him as a terrorist, warlord and drug trafficker.
Looking forward to the contortions of the pro-war crowd as they try to justify Canada's continued involvement in the occupation.
