Why should U.S. support Karzai?

Every day you read something about Afghan President Hamid Karzai complaining that the U.S. military or the U.S. government did this or that which affected his country in an adverse way ("Hagel's shaky Afghan debut," March 12). When are we going to pull away from protecting him and his brothers-in-corruption and let the chips fall where they may for him and his ungrateful nation?

Why should U.S. and NATO soldiers continue to die to keep this person in power?
