Hamid Karzai is upset at the Taliban because they refuse to play according to the rules of war. For some strange reason they select the first flowers of spring as the right time to blast away and kill a few dozen innocent people. He condemned recent attacks in Kabul that left dozens of people either killed or wounded as definitely “un-Islamic” and cowardly. How can these Taliban regard themselves as Muslims when they do surprise stuff?
Hamid would be very happy if Taliban leaders tried out his approach. Karzai appoints crooked folk to important jobs, he makes certain relatives are on the payroll and, in the end, a certain cut of whatever winds up in the hands of those who seek to take over the country.
