Default Karzai says Afghanistan to be safer once foreign troops leave

At first I made the mistake of assuming Karzai was referring to his porous borders and the ISI.

Then I read the article. Karzai is going to need more than a fleet of drones to make Afghanistan "be a safer place"...

Talking Karzai says he will be safer once he leaves Afghanistan

Will Mr. Karzai be in Afghanistan after his term of office expires at the end of 2014?

(I have been unable to identify the actual date)?

Now that would be an interesting bet to place in Kabul only!

I was going to say that Afghanistan will quite likely indeed be a safer country -for some, but for whom? Mr. Karzai will ponder about that too.

No doubt all parties involved will have twelve months to work that out. I have my metrics set for 2013, anyone know the number for the betting office in Kabul?
