Karzai DA Dartmouth 2K9 Dkim 2 1NC Shell (1/4) 1. Karzai strong now—strengthening government David Wood , Chief Military Correspondent, 6/5/ 10 , “Afghan President Karzai Refreshed, Refurbished and Ready for Peace” http://www.politicsdaily.com/2010/05/13/afghan-president-karzai-refreshed-refurbished-and-ready-for-pea/ accessed 7/5/10 Afghan President Karzai was to head home Friday, strengthened by a carefully stage-managed visit to Washington intended to highlight his role as a capable military and political commander . That role will be critical, U.S. officials said, as Karzai immediately plunges into the long and difficult political work of trying to knit together Afghanistan's warring factions and bring years of conflict to a close. First up: a May 29 political gathering, or jirga, of more than 1,000 Afghan leaders to discuss how, when, and under what conditions to bring Taliban fighters back into Afghan society. "We had a great visit,'' Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday, "and not just a meeting that produced a lot of good feelings but that produced a lot of work we are going to be doing to follow up.'' Karzai pronounced his visit "meaningful,'' one that has provided him with the stature to go "back home ... to the peace process .'' Officials who helped craft Karzai's visit expressed satisfaction late Thursday that the recently tempestuous relationship between official Washington and Kabul had been pulled well back from the brink of disaster. Officials said the Karzai visit achieved two critical goals. One is reassuring Washington that the Afghan president is , despite his flaws , a reliable partner to lead a wartime nation and to navigate the tricky business of peace . Just as important, the visit enables Karzai to return home not as a supplicant to American power, but to convene the May 29 peace jirga as a power in his own right . That stems from the promise he won this week from President Obama: that the United States will stand by Afghanistan long after the July, 2011 date on which Obama has said he will begin to transition U.S. forces out of the country. As Karzai described it Thursday, in a discussion at the U.S. Institute of Peace, the American commitment will last "... into the future long after we have retired and perhaps into our grandsons and great-granddaughters' generations. "We know the United States will not abandon the cause,'' he said. Nowhere was the Afghan leader's powerful new status more evident than in his deferential treatment by the man who may be his closest American confident and adviser, Gen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
