ABSTRACT
This article discusses how Afghanistan's politicians have difficult decisions to make when deciding to seek U.S. support or not for their candidacies. Although most such politicians realize that U.S. military support is necessary, they are also aware that U.S. military air strikes on Taliban and Qaeda sites are unpopular because of the possibility of civilian casualties. Afghan politicians such as Hamid Karzai, Ali Jalali and Ashraf Ghani tread a fine line when it comes to seeking U.S. backing.
