The scenario is exceedingly unlikely and appears to be less a serious statement of policy than an Afghan overture to Pakistan, just days after Mr Karzai and Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State said Islamabad must do more to crack down on militants using its territory as a staging ground for attacks on Afghanistan.

“If fighting starts between Pakistan and the US, we are beside Pakistan,” Mr Karzai said is an interview with private Pakistani television station GEO that aired Saturday. “If Pakistan is attacked and the people of Pakistan need Afghanistan’s help, Afghanistan will be there with you.”

He said that Kabul would not allow any nation, including the US, to dictate its policies.

    What a joke, this guy is…Let’s pull out and see how long he stays in power. He’ll be crying for the US and not his so-call brother nation.

    Down right disrepectful to those that have given their lives so that he can sit his ass on the thrown.

    What a kick in the teeth for the families of all the men and women who’ve given their lives fighting terrorism and trying to bring democracy to that country, This shows the true feeling of muslim countries towards the west. Pull out all troops and leave a lil nuke tipped IED.

    Just like Ol Yeller, sometimes you gotta take the dog out back and shoot it in the head when he bites the hands that feeds.

    Wrong answer Karzai. The US wouldn’t want to be backed by terrorists like you and your country anyway, especially if you are siding with another country that blatantly lies about supporting, arming, training and harboring terrorists.
