      Karzai Seeks NATO Support for Another Ten Years

      Afghan president Hamid Karzai is expected in Bonn, December 5, to appeal for another decade of international military support while a World Bank report describes his economy as a basket case.

      The Karzai ten-year vision is at odds with the Obama administration deadline for withdrawing combat units by December 2014, a deadline shared with most of the Western alliance.

      The Pentagon is lobbying for an extension beyond 2014 while most Republican presidential candidates and neo-conservatives are blaming Obama for pulling out before victory.

      The fear of neo-conservative Max Boot is that Obama will accelerate the transition to Afghan security forces during the NATO/G-8 Summit he will host in Chicago in May.
