Afghan president vows to take war on Taliban to Pakistani soilJune 15th, 2008 - 4:16 pm ICT by IANS
Kabul, June 15 (DPA) Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Sunday his country was victim of terrorism coming from the border with Pakistan and vowed to fight on Pakistani soil in “self-defence.” Speaking to reporters in his fortified presidential palace, Karzai said three Pakistani Taliban leaders - Baitullah Mehsud, Mullah Fazilullah, and Mullah Omar - warned they would come to Afghanistan and fight the Afghan or international forces.
“Our patience is running thin, thousands of people are sent to our country, our houses are burnt, our schools are burnt,” Karzai said.
“Mullah Fazelluah said that, we have right to go to his house and kill him there wherever they are. Regarding Baitullah Mesud, we will go openly and we will hit him, the Pakistani government should know we will come and hit him there wherever he is,” Karzai said angrily.
“We hit them yesterday,” the president said, without giving any details.
“Fazilullah should know that we will hit him in his house and in his bases, the other fellow Mullah Omar of Pakistan should know the same, this is a two-way road in this case,” Karzai said.
“We will get them and we will defeat them and we will avenge all that they have done in Afghanistan for the past so many years,” the Afghan president added.
