Karzai Receives Millions from Iran

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on October 28, 2010

President Karzai receives millions of dollars in cash from Iran. The same Iran who funds the Taliban with weapons in Afghanistan to kill our soldiers. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is an enemy to the world, and his people. Do a search on what he’s done to his own people, horrible!

Cash payments from Iran ‘normal,’ Karzai says

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on October 26, 2010

The White House voiced its concern about Iran’s “negative influence” on Afghanistan after President Hamid Karzai admitted receiving bags of cash from Washington’s arch foe Tehran.

Karzai insisted at a news conference in Kabul on Monday that the payments to his chief of staff — sometimes as much as 700,000 Euros (980,000 dollars) at a time — were transparent payments for his presidential office.

“They want good relations in return. Lots of other things in return, Afghanistan and Iran have neighborly relations,” Karzai said.

“We have also asked lots of things in return in this relationship, so it’s a relationship between neighbors and it will go on and we’ll continue to ask for cash help from Iran,” he said.

But White House deputy spokesman Bill Burton said: “I think the American people and the global community have… every reason to be concerned about Iran trying to have a negative influence on Afghanistan.”

The shocking point is Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denies the charges. The Iranian embassy in Kabul also dismissed the report as “ridiculous and insulting.”

What this means is The cash is completely illegal and that’s why Iran wants to keep it down, The other thing is they could send their helps like other countries and for example use the Banks like Kabul Bank, no but they’ve got to give the money in a bag, not even a suitcase. Accessibility to banks also is available for them in Afghanistan.

Karzai is over; he’d killed himself as a politician and lost a bit of respect which some had for him in Afghanistan. From now it is all going down.

Recently Afghan police had seized 22 tons of explosives stashed in boxes marked “food, toys and kitchenware” that were imported from neighboring Iran.

Police Chief Abdul Jabar Purdel said a suspect was detained after the devices were discovered in 337 boxes in a 40-foot shipping container moved from Iran into Afghanistan over a bridge connecting the two countries, CNN reported.

The Afghanistan war has failed

The Wall Street Journal reported that Karzai on April told local officials that the Taliban could gain strength if the United States doesn’t stop meddling and even suggested he would join with them if his government doesn’t support him in taking control of the United Nation’s election watchdog in his country.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has been in talks with high-level Taliban members, but the effort has failed to yield “practical reconciliation” or the “resolution of many issues,” a senior U.S. defense official said early this month.

“We don’t think the Taliban believe that they’re losing to the degree that they’d come to terms in large numbers. Without question, they’re hurting. We have it on good information that they’re feeling the pressure. Just not enough,” the official told CNN.

A Taliban spokesman has told CNN that the group was not interested in peace talks. Zabiuhullah Mujahed, the spokesman, said the group had no representative in the alleged negotiations in Kabul.

Peace negotiations would not happen until the Afghan government met the Taliban’s precondition to withdraw foreign forces from the country and allow Taliban figures in government, the spokesman said.

Today also Afghan Jirga said we’ll give anything if you (high-level Taliban members) come back: housing, job, money …

U.S. and NATO had been present in Afghanistan for 9 months and now I’m sorry to say they’ve lost the War against Taliban. The first reason is Bin Laden which they couldn’t find until now and the other thing is they couldn’t destroy Taliban, as a militant terrorist group.
