Results of the Karzai visit.

Afghanistan. Bush. Karzai.

Bush and Karzai sign security contract for Afghan Pipeline. The low price bidder is the US military.

On the bright side, Bush won't be returning any prisoners to the Afghan government. I suppose Karzai couldn't convince Bush that they would be safer in the US supervised Afghan run prison. Wait, that was the bright side. Crap.

In fact, the CBC says that Karzai stuck out. Maybe he got to eat while he was here.

Hopefully, the British soldiers being mobilized to prevent a civil war in Afghanistan will help get the situation under control. If only we had concentrated on Afghanistan instead of the non-threatening Iraq.
