Like they say in the land where I was born: "Habrase visto tipo con cara tan dura?" Here comes now Barack Obama and says that Hamid Karzai was the "winner" in the recent Afghanistan election. Never mind that Karzai "manufactured" three million votes out of thin air and that the United Nations characterized the process as riddled with fraud.
Remember the "elections" in South Vietnam? Ngo Dim Diem was also the "winner" in those elections, Uncle Sam told the world. But the proudest pupil of USA when it comes to "elections" was General Fulgencio Batista during the "elections" in Cuba. He had a great teacher. The American ambasador and the Mafia made sure that he always "won" the election. The Cuban people got tired. The rest is history.
The facts of the matter are that in the United States elections are not very honest or democratic. Remember how George W. Bush got "elected" in 2000? Electoral fraud in the state of Florida, aided and abetted by the U.S. Supreme Court!
Here is the pertinent news report today:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration declared Hamid Karzai the legitimate president of Afghanistan on Monday, despite a fraud-riddled election that saw millions of ballots favoring Karzai thrown out.
