America Calls Afghanistan A ‘Major Non-Nato Ally’


Yes, the nation that descends into a fit of chaotic rage and begins killing innocent Americans upon learning that their holy book wasn’t treated like the Source of All Life is given the status of a “major non-Nato ally.” Let’s just ignore the fact that Afghan President Karzai would rather support a pro-terror country like Pakistan (and others I’m sure) instead of America if given the choice …

“The United States has given Afghanistan the status of ‘major non-Nato ally’.

The designation, which includes countries such as Australia, Egypt and Israel, gives preferential access to US arms exports and defence co-operation.

The announcement was made by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on an unannounced visit to Afghanistan.

It comes ahead of a major donors’ conference in Japan, which is due to discuss aid to Kabul after most Nato-led troops leave the country in 2014.

Participants at Sunday’s meeting in Tokyo are expected to commit almost $4bn (£2.6bn) in annual development assistance to Afghanistan.

The country’s central bank says it needs more than $4bn in aid each year, on top of $4bn for security forces.

A senior British official described the task of raising that money at the Tokyo conference as an unprecedented challenge,

Afghanistan is seeking firm commitments, but donors at Tokyo’s meeting are also seen as likely to demand guarantees from Kabul on good governance and transparency.

    Yeah, but America practices its own kind of taqiyya, too.
