Afghanistan will defend Pakistan- Biggest Joke of the Year
The statement of Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai that Afghanistan will support Pakistan if attacked by America or India has comic overtones. Afghanistan itself is completely ravaged and devastated by militants which are not only supported but directly sponsored by Pak establishment. President Karzai has accused Pakistan's ISI on numerous occasions. More interestingly, it is American and Nato forces which are defending Afghanistan from the rogue militant groups. Afghanistan should, therefore, defend itself and become stable before helping Pakistan. To club India in his statement will antagonize Indian population which has given billions of Rupees in aid to Afghans to firm up its economy. Neither America nor India is interested in attacking Pakistan as there is nothing to gain from this action. President Karzai should not have made this irresponsible statement making himself a laughing stock.
