So NATO is to be more omnipotent than God, not only aware of every sparrow falling, but intervening to prevent it. Karzai demonstrates the Muslim mindset: takes responsibility for nothing and blames whoever is at hand, preferably someone willing to part with more money. Muslims never make mistakes, whereas infidels can never do anything right according to the Muslim mindset, because whom has Allah anointed after all to rule the World on his behalf?
