I wonder if someone's having awkward second thoughts:
Karzai's Taliban threat unacceptable: Harper
Prime Minister Stephen Harper slammed Hamid Karzai following reports the Afghan president has threatened to quit politics and join the Taliban.
"I have not seen the context of President Karzai's remarks but what I have seen reported is completely unacceptable," Harper told reporters in Mississauga, Ont., on Wednesday.
"We have men and women who are over there putting their lives on the line to help the population in its struggle against the Taliban. These remarks are not helpful and in the context of the dangerous work that our people are doing they are completely unacceptable to Canada and I'm sure the same is true for all of our allies."
Here's a hint, Stephen: Hamid Karzai doesn't give a fuck what you think because he owns you. You've been played. And, seriously, it looks good on you.
