    behind him I don't think it will be too hard for him to impose his will. He already cheated his way back into office, why would it stop there?

      He refused to answer the question directly.

      The "might of the US military" is (and has been for some time) relegated to base. There are areas in Afghanistan that are not under control, even by Karzai and his warlords.

      Due to green-on-blue attacks, American soldiers can't even go to the shitter w/o armed escort.

      It's time to declare victory and get the fuck out.
