“Karzai government needs to stop corruption & drug trade”

Violence is increasing while more US officials are urging Barack Obama to come up with an exit strategy. The important questions are what is happening on the ground and how the US troops feel about the situation.

Hamid Karzai was inaugurated for his second five-year term. But does he have the power to make major military decisions right now?

“What’s on the ground right now is the resurgence of the Taliban due to civilian casualties, and there’s an immense amount of the population that suffers from severe poverty in refugee camps,” Jake Diliberto, an Afghanistan war veteran, told RT.

“The Karzai government really has to push the people who are in this Parliament to stop the corruption, stop the drug trade and to move towards a reform that the people in the villages and rural areas can respect,” he noted.
