ABSTRACT
The article discusses Hamid Karzai, the president of Afghanistan. It focuses on the question of whether he will be able to successfully lead the country during the ongoing Afghan War. Afghanistan is described as an impoverished and marginal nation which has nevertheless managed to embroil several of the world's great empires in bloody and extended wars. The article asks whether Karzai's vanity, emotional volatility, and corruption outweigh his political acumen and coalition-building skills. U.S. policy in Afghanistan is also critiqued.
