Top U.S. General fired for telling the truth about the Karzai regime

“Why don’t you just poke me in the eye with a needle! You’ve got to be kidding me “¦ I’m sorry, we just gave you $11.6 billion and now you’re telling me, ‘I don’t really care’?”

Exactly. Here we have one U.S. official willing to tell the truth about a leader who has openly said he will side with our enemies and has threatened to join the Taliban in the past, and he gets fired.

Fantasy-based policymaking ruthlessly enforced: “U.S. General Fired for Verbal Attack on Afghan Leader,” by Justin Fishel for FoxNews.com, November 5 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

A top U.S. general in Afghanistan was fired Friday for making disparaging remarks about Afghan President Hamid Karzai and his government.

Maj. Gen. Peter Fuller, deputy commander of the NATO training mission in Afghanistan, made the remarks in an interview with Politico that was published Thursday.

Fuller told Politico that major players in the Afghan government are “isolated from reality.” Fuller reacted angrily to claims from Karzai that Afghanistan would side with Pakistan if it were to go to war with the United States.

Fuller called Karzai’s statements “erratic,” adding, “Why don’t you just poke me in the eye with a needle! You’ve got to be kidding me “¦ I’m sorry, we just gave you $11.6 billion and now you’re telling me, ‘I don’t really care’?”

Gen. John R. Allen, the commander of International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), released a statement Friday saying Fuller was to be relieved of his duties, “effective immediately.”

“These unfortunate comments are neither indicative of our current solid relationship with the government of Afghanistan, its leadership, or our joint commitment to prevail here in Afghanistan”, Allen said.

“The Afghan people are an honorable people, and comments such as these will not keep us from accomplishing our most critical and shared mission-bringing about a stable, peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan.”…

Good luck with that. Fuller will be proven right, and you will be proven foolish.

“You can teach a man how to fish, or you can give them a fish,” Fuller said. “We’re giving them fish while they’re learning, and they want more fish! [They say,] ‘I like swordfish, how come you’re giving me cod?’ Guess what? Cod’s on the menu today.”…

    “I’m sorry, we just gave you $11.6 billion and now you’re telling me, ‘I don’t really care’?”

    Well, no, they don’t. Because only in the infidel west is there the idea that gracious acts, freely done for others, should engender gratitude and camaraderie regardless of our social or political positons. To the islamic afgans, we are only kufur paying jizya, which we should always have done, because we are no more than infidel trash. I am fully sympathetic to General Fuller’s position, but he clearly has no idea what he’s dealing with. But why should he? The Hussein administration that sent him there is either just as clueless about, or complicit with, the true aims of ‘arab spring’.

    Gratitude from the afgans (or paks, or syrians, etc.)? Gimme a break.

    Fuller needs to return, and run for Congress. Hopefully he understands that the root of this problem ain’t merely the Afghan people, but Muslims in general. If he gets that, and can communicate it to all, it’ll be a good start.

    As for Karzai, I’d be happy to let the Talibs get him.

    So many people in the U.S chain-of-command in clear violation of their oath of commitment to The Constitution. One can’t assist Islam/ Muslims and be faithful to it simultaneously.

    Try telling that to the souls of those British and Indian troops who had to face Afghan tribesmen for almost two centuries on the Northwest Frontier, and those Indians who were slaughtered in droves by those same tribesmen, when you finally meet your maker.

    The obsequiousness of this administration blows me away. The war there isn’t working, and we’re just licking their boots. As tragic as it would be when the Taliban again take control of the country, it is better than now, when we are constantly duped, waste the lives of some of our best people, and pour billions of dollars into a country which is hopelessly perverted by pederasts and drug dealers.

    “The Afghan people are an honorable people, (No. they are not. They have a warped sense of honor just like their warped morality.)

    “….and comments such as these will not keep us from accomplishing our most critical and shared mission-bringing about a stable, peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan.”…

    There will never be a “stable peaceful & prosperous Afghanistan”.

    Afghanistan will be Islamic under the Taliban.

    U.S. Government Presidents ignorantly, greedily and then traitorously (Clinton, Bush, then Obama) support, cater to, enable, and provide strategic, practical, and logistic support to the Muslim Brotherhood’s global jihad one faction at a time, and then we wonder why and how they are uniting against us?

    Once the good Major-General Peter Fuller gets back home to the States, perhaps Rep Allen West should give him a buzz.

    I think they would understand each other pretty well, and Rep West might be able to help the General turn some of his gut instincts about Islam, Muslims and the lands of Islam, into cold hard Knowledge.

    ………………………

    And higher-ups back home in America proved themselves just as isolated from reality by firing General Fuller.

    Madness, and suicidal madness.

    Thank you, Spirit Of 1683,for pointing that out.

    We (Americans) need to read and heed more History; and your comment here provides me with yet another opportunity to say that we should remove our massed ground forces from Asia/Asia Minor and rely on drones and our offshore fleet for killing targeted individuals and destroying selected buildings and places. The Paki’s vehement shrieks alone attest to the value of drones and the raids by elite special forces. It’s a safe bet that that raid killing Osama bin Laden will be studied by generations of classes in military tactics.

    The cost of this horrendous logistics pipeline literally halfway around the world….via AIR…AIR…is now quite beyond our means…..remember it was the Turks, our NATO “ally”, who refused us transit rights over their territory for our military en route to Iraq.

    Our defense of America (in my untrained, out-of-the-loop opinion) can be successfully achieved by remote control and cyber attacks probing Islamic grid vulnerabilities.

    The leadership of Afghanistan and Pakistan…..and Iraq…should teach ous that we’re spinning our wheels and spending billions of our dollars for nought but temporary, fleeting advantages.

    We’re being played as “useful idiots” by these “allies”.
