    ISLAMABAD — Afghanistan would support Pakistan in case of military conflict between Pakistan and the United States, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said in an interview to a private Pakistani TV channel broadcast on Saturday.

    The remarks were in sharp contrast to recent tension between the two neighbors over cross-border raids, and Afghan accusations that Pakistan was involved in killing the chief Afghan peace envoy, former Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani, by a suicide bomber on September 20.

    "God forbid, If ever there is a war between Pakistan and America, Afghanistan will side with Pakistan," he said in the interview to Geo television.

    "If Pakistan is attacked and if the people of Pakistan needs Afghanistan's help, Afghanistan will be there with you."

    Such a situation is extremely unlikely, however. Despite months of tension and tough talk between Washington and Islamabad, the two allies appear to be working to ease tension.

    In a two-day visit to Islamabad, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued stern warnings and asked for more cooperation in winding down the war in Afghanistan, but ruled out "boots on the ground" in North Waziristan, where Washington has been pushing Pakistan to tackle the Haqqani network.

    The Haqqani are a group of militants Washington has blamed for a series of attacks in Afghanistan, using sanctuaries in the Pakistani tribal region along the Afghan border.

    OMG! We may have to contend with that awesome Afghanistani Navy. I'm not sure we are prepared for that.:(

    Payback for Obama trying to knife Karzai in the back in the Afghan elections, basically.

    Ass-Crack-a-Stan NEEDS Pakistan. This place is utterly land-locked and without Pakistan's ports and shipping, the Afghani's are totally hosed.

    Of course, Tipsy hit a good point. They are all Muslim countries and, at the end of the day, we are still the "infidels".

    Every time Karzai starts talking like this it usually means he's off his anti-depression meds again.

    Why sure, we have an entirely overly expensive State Department on the job. No worries, just keep sending your tax money in.

    You got it. The political country is beside the point as the Islamic faith transcends national boundaries. When will the bozos in WDC understand that?
