Karzai - Afghan Security Better Before Brits Arrived

Afghans were not concerned whether the west felt it had succeeded or failed in their country, Karzai said, because they were focused on trying to recover from 30 years of war. He expects fighting to diminish after most foreign troops have gone, however, as their departure would remove a grievance that drove many fighters to take up arms.

"The exit of foreign forces will not bring more violence for them to perpetrate against their own people, but a serious, strong, good reduction in violence will occur," Karzai said, adding that he thought Helmand had been more peaceful before tens of thousands of US and British troops arrived to fight the Taliban in 2006.
