Karzai: "We need more action around the world."

Bush says he doesn't have time to finger point (a reference to Bill Clinton's finger pointing in the Fox News interview), he has to fight terrorists. He takes the high ground. That's character. Clinton looked ridiculous in that Fox News interview.

Karzai had some excellent remarks as well. I heard Karzai speak on the radio. He is an excellent speaker. The words had more meaning when heard, although they are not bad just reading...
PRESIDENT KARZAI: Terrorism was hurting us way before Iraq or September 11th. The President mentioned some examples of it. These extremist forces were killing people in Afghanistan and around for years, closing schools, burning mosques, killing children, uprooting vineyards, with vine trees, grapes hanging on them, forcing populations to poverty and misery.

They came to America on September 11th, but they were attacking you
before September 11th in other parts of the world. We are a witness in Afghanistan to what they are and how they can hurt. You are a witness in New York. Do you forget people jumping off the 80th floor or 70th floor when the planes hit them? Can you imagine what it will be for a man or a woman to jump off that high? Who did that? And where are they now? And how do we fight them, how do we get rid of them, other than going after them? Should we wait for them to come and kill us again? That's why we need more action around the world, in Afghanistan and elsewhere, to get them defeated -- extremism, their allies, terrorists and the like.
