Choas in Afghanistan

Riots over Quran burning have continued for almost a week now.  The protests have killed 30 people and wounded 200, including four U.S. troops who were shot dead by an Afghan soldier. Seven U.S. military trainers were wounded on Sunday when a grenade was thrown at their base in northern Afghanistan, police said. Anti-American protests continue in Afghanistan, in spite of apologies by the U.S. military and President Obama. According to Reuters, NATO has described the incident of burning of the Koran at the Bagram air base as a tragic blunder. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday that such unrest and targeting of Americans has gotten "out of hand" and needs to stop.

On Monday, came the news that Afghan border police detected a significant amount of bleach in fruit and coffee stored at their main border checkpoint between Afghanistan and Pakistan, a likely attempt to poison the Afghan security forces.

Later in the day a suicide car bomber killed nine people in an attack at the gates of the Jalalabad military airport in eastern Afghanistan. The Taliban have claimed responsibility, saying it was in revenge for Koran burning at the Bagram air base.

President Karzai said that while the "emotions of our people" about the burning of the Koran were "legitimate and valuable", Afghans should try to be calm because it would stop "enemies of our peace and stability" from taking advantage of the situation and from harming people and property.

It is the job of President Karzai to to keep law and order in his country, who up to this point has proven completely ineffective. United States is getting ready to pull it's troop out Afghanistan in 2013, and it has spent fifty one billion dollars on the training of Afghan troops so far. It is also spending two billion dollars a week in Afghanistan, but Afghans want United to States to leave. They want  anarchy and disorder to return, Taliban will return to power and cut the noses of women who leave their homes. They will throw acid on the faces of women and public hangings will become a Sunday past time. It is all matter of time, if the desire to return to 12th Century is so great in that country then who is US to give them freedom, hope and progress?
