An important piece from Ishaan Tharoor – Sochi Olympics Stirs Nationalism of an Exiled People 
http://world.time.com/2014/02/06/sochi-olympics-russia-circassians/
Long before Pussy Riot or gay rights activists sought a boycott of the Olympics, a forgotten community native to Sochi's black pebble beaches clamored loudly against the games

Our latest on the security agreement fight in Afghanistan. 
President Obama delivered the strongest message yet to Karzai to sign a security agreement or the U.S. walks

This article fails to mention the large amount of US tax dollars being exchanged in Afghanistan.  The real reason Karzai would want the US to stay is money.  His CIA ghost money will stop if we leave.  The only reason the Pakistani government would want us to stay is money.  The Pakistani government would prefer a destabilized Afghanistan so they can continue illegal mining of Chormite, deforestation and other illegal befits of a destabilized Afghanistan.  In addition, they don't want to loose the large amounts of money it makes allowing NATO trucks to drive through their country.  This is the only reason they care about the US maintaining a contingency force.  I've yet to meet a Pakistani official who has lost sleep caring about what happens in Afghanistan.  We have meetings all day long in Kabul and they accomplish little.  If these meetings stopped, what would we be loosing?  Karzai would still free whomever he wants from prison regardless of the amount of US and Afghan blood on their hands.  We've given the Afghan military weapons and money for over ten years and every step of the way generals have pocketed it or even worse, used their military to fight Pakistan instead of the Taliban or any of the other dozens of militant groups within their border.  Afghanistan is a waste of money and American lives.  We should get all the Afghans who helped us throughout the years to safety and leave.  Their civil war is happening right now, with or without us.
