AFGHANISTAN

 

p-Afghan President Hamid Karzai vented his frustration over continuing civilian casualties and home raids during NATO operations on Saturday

e-he will not sign a key security agreement with the United States until Afghans stop getting caught in Western troops’ crossfire.
e-Karzai has refused to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) with the United States, which would keep some 15,000 foreign troops stationed around the country after most NATO forces are set to withdraw by the end of next year.
p-the Afghan President must be privately considering what legacy he will leave, and some have speculated that he may not want to be the leader remembered for having signed off on an ongoing U.S military presence on Afghan soil.
NTK- why doesn't he want to sign the document

summary:Afghanistan president  Hamid Karzai  is trying to seperate his country from America so his country doesn't seem like the puppets to the Americas. 

p-Karzai may not be able to constitutionally succeed himself in next year's Afghan elections, but he has his legacy to think about and the position of his family in Afghanistan's future. He may step down, but there are other Karzais in the wings. 

s-he doesn't want the American soliders coming door to door at the dead of night knocking on his peoples doors
