Karzai Seen as Puppet: To him who puts a cord around his neck, God will supply someone to pull it.

President Karzai, the Afghan president, has left the US after three days of talks. Mr. Karzai has been in the news for controversial statements made by him against the US.  He certainly needs to explain himself on many issues such as corruption, drugs, and his dangerous liason with Iran.

President Karzai is trapped between the West that supports his government and the Islamic countries such as Iran that see the US as the “Great Satan.” The enemies of the US see him as a puppet.

President Karzai must decide at some point on which side to be. Playing between the West and the enemies of the West will cost him his life or his government. It is a dangerous game. As the Tuareg of Niger say, “To him who puts a cord around his neck, God will supply someone to pull it.”

Ahmadinejad and Karzai
