Hey Good work Karzai, stand up and speak out against U.S. invasion and Occupation of Afghanistan.
The U.S. Govt has sent its own young men and women, mainly poor persons of color and not college educated, to die in Afghanistan, and to kill as many innocent Afghans and Pakistanis as possible.
Because the U,S. Govt is Greedy and Violent.
The U.S. Govt is the 1%
We the People are the 99% -- whether we live in Afghanistan, Pakistan or the USA!
Take note -- Afghanistan is a gr8 place for the U.S. Govt to attack Iran and steal her oil, defend Israel, attack Palestine and exploit Pakistan's weak state.
And also steal Afghanistan's enormous extractable resources which have been detailed by the USGS -- United States Geological Survey.
Remember the U.S. govt is not US!
Never confuse the American govt with the American PEOPLE.
Occupy the USA!

Panetta's sharp retort also comes just days before he and other NATO defense ministers meet in Brussels to discuss the war and the road ahead, as allied forces begin to withdraw and transfer security to the Afghans. And the exchanges could fuel concerns among NATO allies that the insider attacks may be eroding trust between coalition and Afghan troops, making security transition all the more difficult.
Panetta last met with Karzai in May when he traveled to Afghanistan to meet with commanders and visit troops before the holidays. Both Panetta and Marine Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, will attend the NATO meeting.
Asked whether the insider attacks could prompt some allies to seek a faster withdrawal from Afghanistan, Panetta reaffirmed support for the current timeline that has combat troops leaving the warzone by the end of 2014 and turning security over to the Afghan forces. Officials have said that as many as 20,000 U.S. troops could remain over time, to continue training and counterterrorism efforts.
"My goal is to make clear to NATO and to our allies that we are taking all steps necessary to confront this issue and that it should not be allowed to deter us from the plan that General Allen put in place," Panetta said.
