Good morning, Netizens...

KABUL — Afghan President Hamid Karzai threatened over the weekend to quit the political process and join the Taliban if he continued to come under outside pressure to reform, several members of parliament said Monday. (AP News Wire)

Of course, cartoonist David Horsey's question, as perhaps others might be whether the United States should be supporting the Karzai government.

On one hand we continue battling the Taliban, standing in favor of women's rights and progressive democracy, on the other hand the Karzai government threatens to join the Insurgency responsible for so many American deaths. Which side do we support?
