If Karzai is this Pessimistic, Why are We Doubling Down in Afghanistan?

What reason is there to believe that Karzai will really fight the Taliban? Mr. President, please reconsider the US support for this hopeless cause. Afghanistan does not want nor is it able to be a democracy and corruption is too ingrained in the culture. No Afghan leader will further our interests once we are gone, yet we now have around 100,000 troops there. Why?

For those Americans who support the war but also worry about government spending, do you have any idea how much this war costs and how much more troops deployed adds to that cost?
