Hamid Karzai told CNN at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that he accepts being called "a puppet of America".
The US installed 'president' of Afghanistan rationalized the label by saying:
"Americans have helped Afghanistan tremendously. The American people have a feeling for Afghanistan a very, very great feeling.
The U.S administration has helped Afghanistan and if we are called puppets, or if I am called a puppet because we are grateful to America, then let that be my nickname.
The truth is that without the United States in Afghanistan, Afghanistan would be a very poor, miserable country, occupied by neighbors and al Qaeda and terrorists."
So are we to assume that Afghanistan is not "a very poor, miserable country, occupied by ..." the American empire?
Hamid Karzai may be proud to call himself an American "puppet" but there are other more accurate names for this SELL-OUT HO'!
