Change in Afghanistan up to Afgha­nis

The Washington Times Daily - - Opinion -

I think an apol­ogy from Pres­i­dent Obama for the burn­ing of Ko­rans in Afghanistan was an ap­pro­pri­ate re­sponse, but one apol­ogy was enough (“Probe of Afghan Ko­ran burn­ing near­ing com­ple­tion,” Web, Wed­nes­day).

How­ever, the fact that Mr. Obama did not de­mand a re­cip­ro­cal apol­ogy from Afghan Pres­i­dent Hamid Karzai for the killing of two of our sol­diers demon­strates a lack of courage and a naive un­der­stand­ing of the role of pres­i­dent of the United States.

What­ever peace agree­ment we make with the Tal­iban will be torn up as soon as we leave. It would not mat­ter if we stayed there an­other 10 years or an­other 100 years. Noth­ing will change in that coun­try un­til the Afghan peo­ple them­selves find the will to make it hap­pen. VITO TO­MASINO Las Ve­gas
