Karzai A Wee Bit Upset With Pakistan

And he is threatening to do something about it

Afghan President Hamid Karzai threatened Sunday to send Afghan troops across the border to fight militants in Pakistan, a forceful warning to insurgents and the Pakistani government that his country is fed up with cross-border attacks.

Karzai said that Afghanistan has the right to self-defense, and because militants cross over from Pakistan “to come and kill Afghan and kill coalition troops, it exactly gives us the right to do the same.”

“Therefore, Baitullah Mehsud should know that we will go after him now and hit him in his house,” Karzai said, referring to Pakistan’s top Taliban leader suspected in last year’s assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

“And the other fellow, (Taliban leader) Mullah Omar of Pakistan should know the same,” Karzai continued. “This is a two-way road in this case, and Afghans are good at the two-way road journey. We will complete the journey and we will get them and we will defeat them. We will avenge all that they have done to Afghanistan for the past so many years.”

I guess we now wait to see if Pakistan steps up to the plate to deal with the Islamic extremists in Pakistan, or if Afghanistan will actually start hitting back.
