"I'm bringing to you and to the people of the United States the gratitude of the Afghan people for the support that your taxpayers' money has provided Afghanistan over the past decade and for the difference that it has made to the well-being of the Afghan people," Karzai told Obama.
Well isn't it nice that Karzai and the Afghan people appreciate the US taxpayers and their money? If you ask prime minister Al-Maliki I'm sure he will say that both he and the Iraqi people appreciate the US taxpayers and their money. If we invade Iran I'm sure their new president will appreciate US taxpayers and their money too. And let's not forget the military/industrial cabal. They surely appreciate US taxpayers and all their money no matter what country we use their products and services in. Doesn't all this appreciation make you righties feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Especially every April 15, that is when it should have the biggest affect on you. And since we get all this appreciation, I'm sure you will all be pleased to read this:
"There will be no rush for the exits," NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen told reporters as the summit opened, saying the alliance's plan was sound and vowing to "see it through to a successful end."
Think of all the appreciation American tax payers will receive for probably decades to come. Doesn't that make you wish it were April 15th every day?
