John Kerry brokers Afghan election deal but leaves behind confusion

ISLAMABAD: Even though US Secretary of State John Kerry succeeded in brokering a deal to resolve the deadlock over the Afghan presidential election run-off, confusion still persists about the proposal of forming a “government of national unity”.

On July 12, Kerry announced the agreement in the presence of both rivals Dr Ashraf Ghani and Dr Abdullah Abdullah in Kabul. “The winner of the election will serve as the president and will immediately form a government of national unity,” said Kerry.

However, the top US official failed to explain the composition of the unity government.

Kerry’s vague proposal has caused uproar within the camps of the two candidates and leaders from both sides have expressed concerns that they might not get any position in the new government.

Whatever John Kerry does is soiled with his treason, which oozes from every orifice of his body.

Anywhere he goes, John Kerry leaves behind confusion. It has always been that way and will always be that way.

That's because he's too nuanced for lesser mortals to understand.

As with the Afgan national game of Buzkashi, where the goat carcass is in the hands of only one winner, amongst chaotic tribal contention, the Afgan economy’s only item of contention is the poppy crop.

Who or what oligarchical group controls, processes, distributes that crop is all important and in Afganistan, very complex as with a Buzkashi tribal contention. The ultimate decisions apparently involve the US and its military and political and infrastructure building contributions. Poppies needed a road to market and they got one....the most expensive highway in modern history.

“National unity government” was the US solution to Iraq. Should work as well in Afghanistan.

The winner is the one who keeps the heroin flowing and the backhander going to the Kenyan. Kerry just wants the
Benjamin’s. Democracy schmocracy. Taliban have at it.

No bullets for our soldiers. Sitting ducks.

When is the military going to turn on these schmucks? Any other country would have given such a bunch of criminals the heave after only a few months. Who else can stop them? These communists cannot be voted out.

Kerry should only talk to himself and nuance himself.

The world would be a better place if he did the above.

People in MA are always confused too; they kept Kerry in office for a full generation.

There’s actually something I agree with. Even better, he should go try and play basketball for the Wizards.

No, I think Kerry is pretty much taking confusion with him on his next adventures.

“anywhere John Kerry...confusion”.

Isn’t it time to cut Secretary Kerry some slack? After all he did have to fill some mighty large panties when he took over as SOS!

Kerry served in Vietnam. He won three Purple Hearts for falling off a boat while docked. (Satire.)

Rush’s calls him Lurch. An apt description.

Oh, did you know that Kerry served in Vietnam. For about a week or so. He was discharged after winning (suffering) 3 Purple Hearts.
