Well, okey dokey then

Sounds like a plan -- we could use one of those:

“Afghanistan is ready right now,” Karzai said in a statement, “to take all security responsibilities completely.”
Amid yet another week...the 540th or so such week...of death; some malevolent, some accidental, all tragic, comes the above statement of Karzai.

It's not the first such statement he's made, and they are undoubtedly not ready, or likely to ever be so by whatever loose definition our government defines it. But what the hell, after all this time, why not just say "fuck it, let's declare victory* and get out"?

*Declare it, just don't try to define it.
