The president of Afghanistan asked the United States to leave the country sooner following the publication of photos of soldiers posing with bodies.
President Hamid Karzai issued a statement Thursday calling the behavior shown in the photographs “inhumane and provocative,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
Karzai said he wants to see an “accelerated and full transition of security responsibilities to Afghan forces so Afghanistan can take over its own destiny, and thus no such things can be repeated by the foreign forces in Afghanistan.”
The Taliban also issued a statement Thursday, denouncing the “gruesome acts” depicted in the photos.
“Some Afghan hirelings … posed in the photos, at their masters’ orders, to scorn the remains of martyrs,” the statement said.
Hey Karzai (that is Pashto for douche), we would love to. But I think you would like to stay in power for longer than next week. Because if we were to leave tomorrow that is about as long as you would stay in power before being dismembered in public in a traffic circle in Kabul.
By the way, I have lots more to write about these photos that the LA Slime released. Look for that post soon.
